No NPA campaign tax in Zambales
IBA, ZAMBALES — Governor Amor Deloso said that here in this province, the New People’s Army (NPA) does not implement campaign taxes despite rumors that some of the candidates of other provinces in the country have been asked to pay for campaigning in their areas.
According to Deloso, they have already conveyed with the ranking officers of the NPA here, adding that it would go against their idealism of a free country if the only candidate capable of campaigning would be those who are rich.
“It would not be a free nation if the candidate who will campaign in those areas and win will only be those candidates with money. Ibig bang sabihin mayayaman lang ang puwedeng tumakbo? Deloso said.
Currently, the province of Zambales has around 7,000 rebels scattered all around the province and 1,500 of them are willing to vote this coming elections.
The province, Deloso said, attends to all sectors of the community especially during medical needs even if that sector is part of the NPA. “They are Zambaleños. If they need any help, especially medical attention, I will certainly attend to their needs,” he added. (Jonas Reyes)
