NPA rate for campaign: P250,000 for local bet

One candidate for mayor, who refused to be identified for fear of retaliation, said he was approached by a rebel demanding P250,000 from him as permit to campaign payment.
The payment, the candidate said, would allow him and other candidates in his ticket to campaign in insurgency areas.
“We’re willing to pay but the demand is too big. We will negotiate for a lesser amount,” said the candidate.
