LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, Feb. 11 (PIA) — The Pangasinan Police Provincial Office (PPPO) was one with the nation in the conduct of an interfaith prayer for peace for safe and fair elections.
The interfaith prayer for peace was held at the grandstand of Camp Gov. Antonio U. Sison at Libsong West in this town on Feb. 7.
An initiative of the PasaLord Movement, the simultaneous prayer for peace sought to unite Filipinos of various creeds and denominations to pray for peace in the Philippines.
In Pangasinan, the activity was participated in by representatives from religious sectors, PPPO personnel, and police from city and municipal stations in the province.
Following the interfaith prayer for peace is a human formation wherein some 1, 200 police and non-uniformed personnel formed the word SAFE 2019 and the I Love Pangasinan logo.
Through the secure and fair elections campaign, the PPPO hopes to attain an orderly conduct of midterm elections in May this year.
Senior Insp. Ria Tacderan, information officer of PPPO, said “Nananalangin tayo na ang ating mga kandidato ay lalaban ng may integridad, ng walang pandaraya dahil naniniwala tayo na ang mga Pangasinense ay mararangal na tao.”
Included also in the intentions for the interfaith prayer was imploring for peace in the country, following the spate of bombing of a church in Jolo, Sulu recently.
“Tayo nga ay nalulungkot at nakikiramay sa mga naging biktima ng recent na pagsabog sa Jolo, Sulu at nanalangin tayo na sana ay walang ganitong mangyari rito sa ating probinsya at ibang parte ng bansa,” Tacderan said. (JNPD/AMB/PIA Pangasinan)
