What Do You Know About Election Ban?

Since the Barangay Election is just around, I wanted to feature something related. Whenever "election ban" slithers into discussion, I observed that there is always a point of being oblivious in it, so I decided to take some shed of light in this regard.

Election ban is simply a range of prohibitions given by the government in order to ensure an orderly election period. The election period has started last September 28 and will end on November 12 after the polls. 

I am taking credits from http://www.rappler.com for this creative infographic below consist of icons of specific election related bans taking place within the period:



1. Issuance of appointments, promotions, creation of new positions and approval of salary increases in government offices and agencies.

2. Alteration of a territory of a precinct or establishment of a new precinct.

3. Release of prisoners

4. Raising of funds through lotteries, dances and cockfights

5. Carrying, bearing or transporting of deadly weapons including wearing of uniforms, insignias, etc. unless authorized by the commission

6. Organizing or maintaining reaction forces, strike forces or similar forces

7. Transfer or movement of officers and employees in the civil service, including public school teachers

8. Suspension of any elective provincial, city, municipal, barangay officer

9. Use of security personnel whether such bodyguards are members of officers of government law enforcement agency
