Show of power
The NPAs have been quite busy these days. Not only have they been collecting money for permits to campaign on their supposedly controlled areas, they have also been engaging in terrorist acts like trying to blow up power plants, like the one in Calaca.
The Philippine Star reports that Sorsogon Representatice Jose Solis, a former army man, has been accosted by the NPAs and told that he was unwelcomed in Barangay Union, Gubat since he refused to pay for a campaign permit. His driver was shot and seriously wounded, but Solis was unharmed. This is the first election-related incident in the country. Solis is running for a re-election in the second district of Sorsogon.
