CAMP AQUINO, Tarlac City- The Armed Forces Northern Luzon Command (Nolcom) here reported yesterday that the conduct of barangay and sangguniang kabataan elections in all regions north of Metro Manila was “generally peaceful.”

In a statement, Nolcom said that on election day, its forces were “deployed in strategic locations as deputized by the Commission on Elections and in coordination with other concerned agencies, to ensure the security of polling places and safety of voters.”

“Checkpoints and visibility policies within the prescribed distance from the polling precincts were implemented, together with the police, at pre-designated areas to control unwanted situations,” Nolcom said.
