TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, April 15, 2013 (PIA) –Voters and people who wish to be enlightened about the recent developments relative to the upcoming midterm elections can now listen and interact with anchors as government brings back and election education campaign on the air. 

Dubbed then as Comelec Hour, the pre election government run voter’s education campaign is now back on air with three anchors willing to process everybody’s questions and clarify murky issues. 

Anchored by City Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Registrar Atty. Jonas Biliran, Provincial Comelec information officer Juvenal Beniga and Philippine Information Agency in Bohol head Rey Anthony Chiu, this year’s voters’ education segment has just turned interactive. 

The new interactive program, “Mga gutlo sa Kaalam Uban sa Comelec” can be heard over DyRD AM from 9:30 to 10:00 AM Monday to Thursday and at 11:00 to 11:30 every Fridays. 

The same program and radio anchors shift to DyTR in the afternoon; at 2:00 – 2:30 every Monday through Friday. 

During its inaugural airing, Mga Gutlo sa Kaalam, a thirty minute segment aired live over the said radio stations in the amplitude modulation band tackled the rationale behind the program and took up the sensitive issue on automated elections. 

A mandatory activity set by the national poll body to advance the information advocacy especially on getting the right and informed decisions, the radio programs add up to the COMELEC’s pre-polls tasks. 

In the light of the automation and the Precinct Count Optical Scanners (PCOS) which have been pushed into controversy, the radio program can be a source of information and clarification as to why people have aired apprehensions over the new technology, said Atty Biliran during one of the segments last week. 

Other possible controversial issues which the program could tackle would be the Fair Elections Act and the prohibitions which the law provides so that candidates can not unduly sway voters by a sly use of faulty campaign strategy. 

People and voters can interact with anchors of Mga Gutlo sa Kaalam through the usual landlines at DyRD and DyTR. 

The PIA also opens its usual textline for interactors who may not have an access to the landlines, said PIA head Rey Anthony Chiu. 

The Mga Gutlo sa kaalam text line hotline is 0920-954-5482. 

Offering of the program is the government’s move towards transparency in service as well as providing people access to empowering information for them to be able to intelligently choose from among thousands of candidates running for May 13. (30/gg)
