Gun ban starts tomorrow, January 22, re SK elections


There will be no more carrying of guns tomorrow, January 22 2015 -- 30 days ahead of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.

The gun ban shall be in effect from Jan. 22 to March 2, or 30 days before and 15 days after election day, according to the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

Based on Comelec Minute Resolution No. 15-0026, all gun ban exemptions issued for the May 2013 local and national elections and October 2013 barangay polls will not be honored.

However, members of the Philippine National Police (PNP), and other law enforcement and security personnel could apply for renewal of their Certificates of Authority/Gun Ban Exemptions, Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said.

“All existing authority granting security personnel or bodyguards are likewise revoked, except the regular security complement of the President, Vice President, senators, congressmen and governors, all local elective officials (except barangay officials), justices, judges, Cabinet secretaries, chairman and commissioners of the Commission on Elections, chief of staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police, major service commanders, director generals and senior officers of the PNP," he added.

All security personnel deployed from units of the PNP, AFP and other law enforcement agencies shall be recalled tomorrow.
