ILOILO CITY: Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog here has admitted that narco politics is possible in the barangay elections slated on October 28. However, Mabilog said he was told by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) that drug proliferation in the city is on manageable level. PDEA has identified at least 20 city barangays seriously affected by the drug trade with users and pushers. PDEA regional director Paul Ledesma reported to Mabilog that 20 new drug related cases are being pursued currently by the anti-drug agency. Concerns were aired recently that drug financiers and druglords are supporting barangay candidates running in the October 28 barangay elections.
