Philippine Army troops who will render election duty cast their vote in the local absentee voting on April 28, 2022 at the Philippine Army Officers’ Clubhouse, Fort Bonifacio, Metro Manila.
According to the Commission on Elections, a total of 34,570 Philippine Army personnel have qualified for local absentee voting. Local absentee voters are eligible to vote for national candidates—president, vice president, senators, and party-list—during the three-day local absentee voting period that will end on April 29, 2022.
In his earlier guidance, Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Brawner has reminded Army troops of their two tasks in the May 2022 national and local polls: To practice the right of suffrage and to ensure the safe, orderly, and peaceful conduct of elections.
The Army Chief has likewise directed troops to observe the organization’s non-partisan stance and to refrain from liking, sharing, or posting social media content that is political in nature. — PA
