BY JUDY F. PARTLOW

Senior Supt. Harris Fama, officer-in-charge of the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office, said yesterday that majority of the election watchlist areas in the province are in the first congressional district.

The district comprises the cities of Canlaon and Guihulngan, and the towns of Manjuyod, Bindoy, Ayungon, Tayasan, Jimalalud, La Libertad and Vallehermoso.

Fama said the PNP has already validated these areas, although he declined to identify them until after the list has been submitted to the Commission on Elections in the province.
