The Commission on Elections (Comelec) reminded candidates about the guidelines on campaigning set under Resolution 8758 or the Rules and Regulations implementing Republic Act 9006 (Fair Election Practices Act).

The resolution, promulgated last February 4 and signed by Comelec chair Jose Melo and six Comelec commissioners, outlined the rules and prohibitions regarding political advertisements, propaganda and campaign expenses of national and local candidates.

Political parties and party list groups were advised to place their posters in common poster areas that the poll body will designate. Posting of campaign materials in public places such as streets, bridges, public buildings, trees, electric posts and wires, schools, shrines and main thoroughfares are strictly prohibited under poll laws. All posters outside the common poster areas will be considered prohibited postings, so they will have to be removed, the Comelec said.

Written and printed campaign materials must not exceed 81/2 inches by 14 inches in size while posters must not exceed 2 ft. by 3 ft.

All candidates are prohibited to campaign on Holy Thursday and Holy Friday, April 1 and 2, respectively and on May 9 and 10. The campaign for local candidates will start on March 26 and the entire campaign period will end on May 8.
