THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) is building up cases against erring candidates seen to be violating Comelec restrictions on campaigning for the May 10 national and local elections, Comelec spokesman James Jimenez disclosed on Thursday.
Appearing at the Kapihan sa Senado media forum, Jimenez said the poll body, for a start, has dispatched teams to go after violators of the common poster rule.
“Actually, we are sending off teams of people to take photographs and videos of various violation of the common poster rule,” he said. “Then we will submit these records to our law department so that our lawyers can evaluate and take legal action. We do not single out candidates,” he hastened to add.
