COTABATO CITY – Police authorities in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao have listed 9 towns in the region where violence are likely to happen in the upcoming 2019 elections.
Chief Supt. Graciano Mijares, ARMM police director, identified the towns as Hadji Mohammad Ajul in Lantawan and Tipo-Tipo towns all in Basilan province; Marawi City and Sultan Dumalondong in Lanao del Sur province; and Mamasapano, Shariff Aguak, Shariff Saydona Mustapha, and Datu Unsay, all in Maguindanao.
Mijares said they have recommended those towns to be placed under “hot spot” areas in the coming elections and listed them as “election areas of grave concern.” “The presence of armed men and private armed groups in the following areas had a history of election-related violence,” Mijares said.
The number of areas under such category might increase, he said, depending on the result of the weekly assessment conducted by both the police and the military. (PNA)
