Pray for Upcoming Philippine Elections

May 5, 2016

This upcoming Monday, May 9th, is a national and local election day in the Philippines.   According to a recently released U.S. Embassy security bulletin, the Philippine authorities have taken steps to reduce the possibility of election-related disturbances before, during,  and after May 9th.

The Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines have established checkpoints in areas near polling places.

Additionally, on January 10th, Philippine authorities implemented a ban on bearing, carrying, and transporting firearms in public areas during the election period, from January 10th through May 8th. The penalty for anyone caught in violation of the ban is one to six years in jail, with foreigners subject to possible deportation after completion of any prison sentence.

Please commit to keep the Philippines in your prayers as they transition through this election period.
