FIFTEEN candidates in the province of Iloilo have requested for security escorts, according to the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
Atty. Jesse Suarez, provincial Comelec director, Comelec Resolution 96-08 only allows incumbent governors and lawmakers to have police or military escorts.
Suarez said police or military escorts must wear complete uniform when carrying firearms, otherwise they will violate the election gun ban.
