PEACE was
conceived by the civil society of Lanao del Norte as a movement by the people
of Lanao del Norte to ensure for themselves that their leaders is their choice
based on their will as written in the ballot.

Bakak vs. Tinuod (Lie vs. Truth). This is what the streamer in front of the Cathedral Church at Iligan City says. The people of Iligan City and Lanao del Norte municipalities protested over the COCs released by the Comelec-Lanao del Norte, specifically COCs from Bacolod, Kauswagan and Maigo. Results for the congressional candidate for District I of Lanao del Norte were apparently tampered. (Refer to the table above for the tampered results)

There were pictures taken of the COCs with erasures on it. Unfortunately, or rather fortunately, the true entries to the COCs can still be seen under the liquid eraser used.

The PPCRV, together with other organizations and concerned citizens of Iligan City have been holding rallies all over the city, appealing to the Comelec to disregard the COCs from the three municipalities. They have also initiated a signature campaign to help further push the Comelec to come up with a fair decision.

Until now, the Comelec hasn't made any decision on this matter yet.

The people of Iligan City and other affected populace of District I Lanao del Norte is fighting for their right to choose freely.

I am appealing to the Comelec to be fair and true in coming up with their decision on these election results.

Let truth and justice prevail. God bless us all.
