The Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Wednesday expressed worries that there might be more incidents of election-related violence as the May automated polls near.

“It looks like that there might be more election-related violence incidents (ERVI) [during this] election and we want to know why,” Comelec spokesman James Jimenez told reporters on Wednesday.

Despite the nationwide gun ban in effect, Comelec officials still notice ERVIs being directed at the candidates’ campaign trails.
