MANILA — With only five days to go before elections, various groups convened today, May 8, at the Colegio de San Juan de Letran to stand strong together against election fraud and political repression that, they said, will happen with “certainty.”

“On election day, we can expect even more-than-usual rampant vote-buying while communities supportive of the Opposition and Independents will be prevented from voting,” the groups said in a unity statement.

Among those present during the forum were representatives from St. Scholastica’s College-Manila, Sta. Isabel College, National Council of Churches in the Philippines, Jose Reyes Memorial Hospital Employees Association, Babae Network, Kilusang Mayo Uno, and Bagong Alyansang Makabayan.

The unity statement said it is “imperative that people unite to denounce in the strongest terms election fraud, political repression, and massive disinformation.”
