The Commission on Elections (Comelec) en banc has declared the province of Abra as an election hotspot.
This means that the province has been put under Comelec control.
The Comelec declared Abra as “Category Red,” the highest category.
“The Comelec en banc declared the whole province as a hotspot under category red, as carried by Resolution 105-10,” Assistant Director of Comelec-Cordillera, Vanessa Roncal, said.
“I will convene all stakeholders next week to explain the resolution declaring Abra as (a) hotspot. That is what we will do to make the public understand the implication of the declaration,” John Paul Martin, Bangued Election Officer.
