Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has assured the general public of “very peaceful elections” on Monday, May 9.

The Department of National Defense (DND) has not monitored any menace to nationwide safety, Lorenzana stated throughout a latest Laging Handa briefing.

“Ngayon wala, isolated lang. Alam naman ng COMELEC (Commission on Elections) kung saan iyong hotspot kasi under COMELEC control at saka control ng PNP. So far generally, it will be a very peaceful election,” in accordance with the DND chief.

“Mayroon lang sigurong [kaunti], alam mo naman sa Pilipinas hindi mawawala iyong mga awayan ng mga kandidato. So, mayroon iyan, but it is very isolated at saka kaunti lang iyan,” he added.

Lorenzana expressed confidence that the presidential election consequence wouldn’t end in protests or spur violence.

“After the election I don’t think na magkakaroon tayo ng kaguluhan dahil sabi ko nga kung sino iyong ipo-proclaim ng COMELEC ay iyon ang iri-recognize natin na nanalo, kung sino ang i-proclaim,” he stated.
