The issuance of show cause orders to candidates for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections over alleged premature campaigning and vote buying de-escalates political rivalries, Commission on Elections (Comelec) Provincial Supervisor Atty. Ian Lee Ananoria said Wednesday, October 4.

He said, though, that more show cause orders are expected to be issued from the Comelec's Task Force Epal for local BSKE bets.

As of Tuesday, October 3, no additional show cause orders so far have arrived in his office, Ananoria said.

As of October 2, a total of 47 local bets were served with show cause orders in the province, including Bacolod City.

"The heating up of the campaign was preempted because of the show cause orders. It de-escalate political rivalries," Ananoria pointed out.

However, he said he expects an increase in the issuance of show cause orders as the election nears.

"I hope not, but I expect it," he said.
