Although a number of malfunctioning VRVMs were reported, all election paraphernalia was delivered safely and secured.

Troops of Joint Task Force Central were deployed 3 days prior to election in all polling centers to provide security and assistance to the election committee and to the electorates .

In the morning of election day, BIFF members were encountered by JTF Central troopers that ensued a 10-minute exchange of fires in Brgy Lower Meta, Datu Unsay, Maguindanao. These terrorist, who were reported by a concerned citizen to be planning to disrupt the conduct of election, prompted the response of our forces. No casualty on the government troops.
