BUTUAN CITY -- Following the successful arrests of 12 suspects on COMELEC Gun Ban and violation on Republic Act No. 10591 or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act, prior the actual casting of votes, Election Day in the province of Surigao del Norte turned out to be generally peaceful and orderly.

The Office of the Provincial Operations Division recorded zero criminal activities in the entire province yesterday, citing that only minor incidents like Vote-Counting Machine (VCM) malfunction, other VCM technical problems, and long queue of voters in the polling precincts but these were immediately addressed.

“The people in Surigao del Norte province were able to exercise their right to vote due to our relentless and persistent efforts to provide a safe and secure environment.
