PAMPANGA-- The Liberal Party (LP) here on Tuesday removed all the campaign materials of its national and local candidates that were unintentionally nailed on trees or hang outside of the Commission on Elections’ (Comelec) designated common poster areas in the province.

“We want the party to comply with the Comelec ruling against illegal posting. We want also to respect and protect the trees, which are also part of our ecological advocacy,” said LP-Pampanga chair Governor Eddie Panlilio.

Panlilio initiated the move that started along the Balite segment of the old McArthur Highway in the City of San Fernando at 7:30 a.m.

The governor has also enjoined all political parties in the province to follow the Comelec mandate.

LP vice gubernatorial candidate Marco Lazatin, second district congressional candidate Adonis Simpao, Gil Cortez and Dr. Joe Sandiko, who are running for board members in the third district, have also helped in removing the posters.

The LP candidates together with some volunteers took out more than 30 posters of LP standard bearer Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino Jr. and his running mate, Senator Manuel “Mar” Roxas. These were given to supporters for postings on the gates or fences of their residences. (PR)
