Ops vs rebels continue amid post
by PNA

Military operations will continue against communist rebels and other threat groups during the midterm elections.

Col. Noel Detoyato, Armed Forces of the Philippines public affairs office chief, said around 30,000 to 40,000 military troops are committed to aiding the Philippine National Police and the Commission on Elections in ensuring that the May 13 elections will be peaceful and orderly.

“We will be supporting the PNP and the Comelec in this midterm elections with up to 40,000 of our troops directly committed depending on the situation on the ground. It will be decided upon by the unified commanders but our counter-insurgency and security operations will not be stopped,” Detoyato said.

Operations against threat groups will be guided by the latest intelligence reports and will be a “focused military deployment.”

The AFP official added that military troops will be deployed in precincts identified as needing extra security. Deployment duties will be decided by the Comelec, Detoyato said.

"We are deputized by the Comelec so troops deployed for election duties will take their deployment  (orders) from the Comelec," he added.

Aside from securing the elections, the AFP will also help in the transport of poll materials where there are no contractors.
