Rafter added that they are also involving the barangays in ensuring that the health protocols are observed in all campaign activities done at the village level.

“It was also one of the topics discussed in the convergence earlier. With the implementation of the health protocol, we are really ensuring that the organizer will be implementing that,” she said.

With the start of the local campaign, Rafter said that at least 200 CCPO personnel are on standby should activities need police presence in keeping these away from the possible act of violence or breach of protocols.

Should certain organizers or candidates fail to follow the guidelines set by the Commission on Elections (Comelec), the latter has the hold on what follows.
