    TACLOBAN CITY: The Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Eastern Visayas expects political rivalries in the upcoming barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections to be more intense and personal. Lawyer Jose Nick Mendros, Comelec-8 regional director said compared to the national and local elections, the rivalries in the barangay polls are more personal since opponents are usually neighbors and even relatives. “In anticipation of a more intense situation, we have started meeting with the law enforcement agencies to improve our security preparations,” Mendros said.
