BASELCO assures stable electricity on election day

ISABELA CITY, Basilan, May 05 (PIA) – The Basilan Electric Cooperative (BASELCO) expressed full support to generate electricity in polling centers in the province during the election period, especially on May 09, 2022.

BASELCO General Manager Dusib Durapan said during the Final Briefing of the Provincial Joint Security Control Center (PJSCC) on Wednesday, May 04 that they had already inspected polling centers in Basilan to determine their status in terms of power supply. However, he said there are municipalities that are still not fully energized.  

“In preparation for the election, in fact meron na kaming Task Force Bantay Election at sila yong magbabantay ng kuryente sa election. We have already inspected 231 polling centers at 73 dito ay nasa lugar na wala talagang kuryente. May mga municipalities pa rin na wala pang kuryente, ang iba ok na wala na tayong problema,” Manager Durapan said.

Manager Durapan added that they have personnel on stand-by near polling centers and he also asked the COMELEC to allow them to enter for any circumstances.

“Pakiusap lang din po namin sa COMELEC na kung sakali man na magkaroon ng problema sa kuryente, payagan nila yong mga personnel natin na papasok para macheck at maayos kung ano ang problema kasi nakauniform naman sila, dahil gagawin namin ang aming makakaya para hindi tayo magkaproblema sa kuryente,” he expressed.

The Department of Energy press release on April 01, 2022 stated that through Department Circular No. 2018-05-0014, which created the Energy Task Force Election (ETFE), the task force, in partnership with Commision on Elections, together with power suppliers and service providers is mandated to ensure that reliable electricity and fuel supply is available 24/7 to support free and honest election.(RVC/EDT/NDR/PIA9-Basilan)
