A municipal councilor allegedly hit a poll watcher with a cellphone inside an election precinct in Alicia Municipality, Zamboanga Sibugay last Monday.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office-9 Information Officer, identified the poll watcher as Rey Anthony Salazar.

Salazar was reportedly serving as poll watcher of two candidates for the barangay  at the Alicia Elementary School when Municipal Councilor Gali Musa together with his brother Galib and ten members of his security team entered the school premises.

The group members were preparing to act as liners  when their attention was called by Salazar to the election violation.

Salazar was also reportedly taking video footages of the whole proceeding.

Irked, Gali Musa then smashed Salazar using a cellphone, an act which was also recorded by another member of Salazar’s party.

That same morning, Gali also reportedly threatened a certain Haina Kusay Rasul.

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) is investigating the incident.  (Ely Dumaboc)
