DAVAO CITY — Mayor Sara Z. Du­terte has warned all local candidates here running under the Hugpong ng Pagbabago – Hugpong sa Tawong Lungsod alliance against paying the New People’s Army’s (NPA) permit-to-campaign or they will be junked by the party.

Duterte said the alliance will outrightly junk candidates who will be giv­ing into the demands of the NPA, a ter­rorist organization behind countless of horrendous crimes against the people.

“That it requires candidates to pay in exchange for access to campaign in far-flung areas exposes the NPAs perverted views of democracy,” she said.

She said the election ensures that people freely exercise their right to choose their leaders — and the NPA extortion scheme is an absolute travesty of the essence of the election.
