COMELEC releases guidelines on Barangay and SK elections campaign and propaganda

In view of the coming campaign period for the Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) polls, the Commission on Elections has released a set of rules and regulations that would govern the conduct of election campaigning and propaganda.

Resolution 8320 released by the COMELEC en banc October 8, 2007 states that ‘election campaign’ refers to an act designed to promote the election or defeat of a particular candidate or candidates to a public office. The COMELEC said this includes forming of organizations, associations and clubs for the purpose of soliciting votes; holding of meetings, political caucuses and rallies; making speeches, announcements or commentaries; publishing or distributing campaign literature or materials and directly or indirectly soliciting votes.

However, in order to ensure a level playing field for all Barangay and SK candidates, the COMELEC has imposed a limit on how much a candidate shall spend for his election campaign. “No candidate shall spend for his election campaign an aggregate amount exceeding Three Pesos (P3.00) for every registered voter in the Barangay where he seeks to be elected” the COMELEC said in the resolution.

In addition, the poll body has imposed rules on what constitutes lawful election propaganda. It said only handwritten or printed letters not exceeding 8 ½ inches in width and 14 inches in length and posters of a size not exceeding 2 feet by 3 feet shall be allowed during the campaign period.

Candidates may only place display or exhibit their campaign posters and other election propaganda in designated common poster areas in each Barangay, the COMELEC said. These designated areas, at least ten in every Barangay, shall be erected in public places such as plazas, markets, Barangay centers and the like.

The campaign period for the October 29, 2007 elections will run from October 19, 2007 until October 27, 2007. ###

    posters can only be posted in designated common poster areas; but you can also hang posters on your residence. In either case, the posters must keep to the size limit of 2’x3′

    candidates for barangay and SK positions run as individuals, not as groups.

    • Sir, kung ang kaibigan ng isang kandidato ay magpagawa ng tarpaulin na lagpas sa sukat, at ilagay niya sa kanyang sariling bahay, ito ba ay bawal.

      or

      Ako ay kaibigan ng isang kandidato sa barangay: gusto ko sanang magpagawa ng tarpaulin na lagpas sa sukat at ilagay ko sa harapan ng aking bahay, pwede po ba ito?

  9. cris,

    tanong ko lang po kung pwede GUMAMIT NG T-shirt wit print ang mga candidate n tarpaulin sa mga common poster area,tnx

    The only allowed campaign materials are handouts/flyers and posters. tarp is allowed, but watch you costs. you are limited to 3pesos/voter

  10. i’m running for the position of bgy. kagawad. in my campaign material (calling card type) can i include the name of my choice for bgy. chairman?

  11. Can a government employee run for a barangay office or should he resign his government post first before running?

    Posted by Patricia | 18 October 2007, 10:38 am
  12. can candidates use tshirts printed with their names and positions in their campaign sorties

    Posted by rod | 18 October 2007, 1:40 pm
  13. The registrants for the SK elections on our barangay numbered only 12. Just by having a drug test leaves a candidate no choice but to violate the P 3.00 per voter rule as drug test usually cost P 150.00 at the minimum and as per the rule, our SK candidates can only spend a maximum of P 36.00 in this election. Is there any ruling on this case?

    Posted by Tony Napalan, Jr. | 18 October 2007, 8:50 pm
  14. May limit ba ang bilang ng 2’X3’poster ng isang kandidato na pwedeng ikabit sa mga bahay ng mga supportes?
    Pwede rin bang magkabit ng poster sa mga pribadong lugar gaya ng private building, sari-sari store, private schools, restaurants etc.?

    Posted by andresB | 19 October 2007, 12:10 am
  15. Ginoo, magandang araw po. . . Nais ko lang itanong kung maaari po ba kami (SK Candidates) magpagawa mga paskin at “tarpaulin” na sama-sama kaming nakalagay sa naturang paskin at “tarpaulin”? May kumakalat po kasing balita na bawal daw ang sama-samang nakalagay ang mga kandidato ng isang partido sa anumang Paskin at “tarpaulin”. Tinanong po namin sa COMELEC makati District two kung bawal. . . Ang sabi po nila hindi naman daw po. Nais ko lang maliwanagan. . . Bawal po ba ang ganoon o pwede? Maraming salamat po.

    Posted by Vincent Cifra | 19 October 2007, 2:53 pm
  16. Tony, the cost of the drug test is not included in the computation for the purpose of determining compliance with the spending cap. It is not even part of the campaign.

    Andres,pwede kayo magdisplay ng posters sa private residences and buildings, with the consent of the owner.

    Vincent, I’m securing a ruling from the en banc on this issue.

    Posted by jimenez | 19 October 2007, 3:44 pm
  17. bawal daw po ba nag lagay ng word na iboto or vote sa mga pamplets or any campaign poster ng mga kandidato?,..

    Posted by Garra | 19 October 2007, 5:57 pm
  18. garra, hindi bawal

    Posted by jimenez | 19 October 2007, 10:20 pm

  20. pwede po bang gumamit ng stickers as campaign materials at idikit sa mga store??bawal daw po bang gumamit ng printed t-shirts as campaign materials din po??

    Posted by jamel | 20 October 2007, 2:23 pm
  21. question lng po, sa dapat na budget ng isang kandidato, paano po ung kukuha ng napakaraming watchers? tapos po, pag may magkaparehong pangalan o screen name, void po ba ang boto? ap[plicable din po ba ito kung ang kapareho niyang pangalan ay isang incumbent candidate?

    Posted by louie birol | 20 October 2007, 8:51 pm
  22. Good day sir. Would just like to ask if the use of jingle/songs especially composed for a particular candidate or group is allowed during the election campaign. In our barangay this is being done by some candidates. If this is not allowed what are we going to do to stop this? Thank you.

    Posted by Rolando | 21 October 2007, 8:41 am
  23. mr. jimenez good day im waiting for you reply with regards to rolando’s inquiries (22) could you please answer his inquiries for further details tnx

    Posted by elwin lazaro | 21 October 2007, 9:12 pm
  24. elwin, thanks for the heads up; rolando, good question. a jingle specially composed for a candidate and played during campaign sorties is, in my opinion, legal. however, a jingle for a group would not, again in my opinion, be allowable as it goes against the rule that barangay elections should be non-partisan.

    Posted by jimenez | 23 October 2007, 3:52 am
  25. juandiegoluis: yes

    jamel: pwede gumamit ng sticker, pero damat may consent nung store owner bago mo idikit.

    louie birol: may limit ang watchers. 1 for every 100 registered voters in the barangay. yung ibang tanong mo, pwede mo isangguni sa EO.

    Posted by jimenez | 23 October 2007, 3:55 am
  26. Gud day sir. I’m running for the position of SK Chairman, and I’m just wondering if printed shirts can be used as a campaign material. tnx po

  27. sir…are donations made by friends included in the 3-peso limit for every voter in the barangay that we should spend.please answer soon.

  28. thank you very much. more power to people like you who are dedicated to serve.

    Posted by juandiegoluis | 25 October 2007, 11:47 pm
  29. sir, dito sa amin sa magkakatabi na barangay ang bawat kandidato para brgy. cahir may kanya-kanya line-up ng kagawad. ang mga campaign materials na gamit nila magkakasama ang mga names & faces nila. sa isang buong card board. yung iba tarpaulin pa gamit lahat sila sama-sama, from chairman to all kagawad. nan-partisan pa ba iyon? kung hindi, saan dapat i-report?

    Posted by juandiegoluis | 26 October 2007, 1:19 am
  30. sir, yun din po pala ang tanong ni vincent (15). what’s the ruling from the en banc on our queries? thank you in advance.

    Posted by juandiegoluis | 26 October 2007, 1:44 am
  31. Mr. Jienez, We have incidents here at Bancal , Carmona, Cavite of vote buying…how can we prove it since witnesses said that offered runs from P300.00 per voter….They are rivals of the current baranggay chairman..thanks

    Posted by Ramon Diaz | 28 October 2007, 3:23 pm
  32. sorry kung medyo late itong ibang replies …

    roset: tshirts can be given to your campaign workers, but not to voters; contributions from all sources are included in the computation of the expenditures

    juandiegolouis: i would say na bawal yun; re votebuying, call our hotlines and we’ll help you report to the appropriate authorities

    Posted by jimenez | 28 October 2007, 5:10 pm
  33. Sir, ano po ba ang kaso sa pag solicit ng funds during the campaign period?
