DAVAO CITY May 10, 2016 (PIA)- The elections in the Davao Region were generally peaceful and orderly this according to the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV).
According to Atty. Aileen Lizada, election liaison of the PPCRV, there were only minor problems brought to the center which they relayed to the Commission on Elections (Comelec). Among the problems include overheating voting counting machines (VCM), jammed machines or non-operating vcms but these were quickly replaced by by the Comelec.
However the Comelec ran out of standby machines thus some problems in the precincts were resolved either late Monday or Tuesday morning.
Other problems include missing names in the voters list, however they attributed these to voters who were not able to have their biometrics.
Apart from the City of Davao, polls were peaceful in the provinces of Davao del Sur, the new province of Davao Occidental, Davao del Norte, Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental. (PIA/RG Alama)
