Be gracious losers, CBCP tells poll bets

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) is calling on all candidates for this Monday’s election not to be sore losers and to accept defeat graciously.

CBCP president and Tandag Bishop Nereo Odchimar said that candidates should learn to accept their defeat incase they don’t win the National and Local Elections on Monday.

It may be recalled that a presidential candidate said only a failure of the automated election system will make him lose the race to Malacanang due to his strong showing in almost all pre-election surveys.

Ochimar also reminded candidates not to practice vote-buying by letting the electorate freely choose their own candidates.

The prelate also added that the people should not believe everything that they hear, especially those that feed on their fears such as the failure of elections.
