PNP tags 7 poll hot spots


THE Philippine National Police (PNP) has identified at least seven provinces considered to be election hotspots. It said the number is fewer than the 15 provinces tagged as election areas of concern in the last election in 2013.

PNP chief Ricardo Marquez however refused to identify provinces that the police consider areas of concern, saying authorities continue to assess these provinces.

Certain towns and province can be declared election hot spots if there is intense political rivalry or if there is palpable threat from private armed groups or if rebels have been monitored in these areas.
