Security has increased on the eve of national and local elections that has been marred by sporadic violence. Intense political rivalry and long-standing feuds between families have made elections in this southern province a deadly bloodsport.

There are goals and efforts for the Philippines to have the capability to defend itself against external aggression. It is not forgotten. We just have to prioritize. - Ruffy Biazon, former congressman of Muntinlupa City 2001-2011

The Philippines  have done an amazing job keeping their Cannon-class Frigate operational–who would have imagined that the World War II veteran (with a U-boat kill to her credit, no less) would still be up and operational for the Balikatan 2010 exercises?  That is an amazing feat, and if there is a Navy out there that can keep an older combatant going, it’s the Philippines’ Navy.

I saw the members of the AFP participate in the Operation Baklas of the COMELEC and I was very amazed at their willingness to really help the COMELEC. Even my friend in a local COMELEC office told me that they can rely on the soldiers to really remove the posters, especially those which were placed on electric lines and other high places. Immediately after the election, the Navy in Albay started voluntarily cleaning up the province and taking down those posters. So the AFP did not only cleaned up after the politicians but also cleaned up during the campaign period. Congratulations AFP.  :bravo:

AFP commended for poll conduct
Manila Bulletin - Sunday, May 16

Defense Secretary Norberto Gonzales extolled the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for doing a very good job in the May 10 automated elections.

''I can't thank you enough for performing such a good job,'' said Gonzales, as he lauded the efforts of the men and women in uniform for ''making the last election worthy of our democracy.''

''I don't know if the nation will see this in the future. But this much will say as your Secretary of National Defense, that the Armed Forces of the Philippines have done the best that this nation deserve when it comes to this particular aspect of our democracy,'' said Gonzales, adding: ''You have made the last election worthy of our democracy.''

''As a citizen of this nation, I would say thank you to the Armed Forces of the Philippines,'' he further stated.   :bravo:

Gonzales noted that the recent election, conducted amid fears of poll failure, was ''like a bit of a typhoon that we have to prepare for.''

''The whole nation had to put all their brains and hearts together just to keep this election go in a manner that would be respected by the rest of the nation and the world,'' he pointed out.

''I'm very sad to think that it has to take the lives of some of our soldiers to make this election fair and conducted in a manner that is deserved by our people,'' Gonzales said. According to the military, 20 soldiers were killed while 19 were wounded in the performance of their duties during the election period.
