possible link-up of Chapel Net with the local/provincial stations of the said broadcasting
company. It was mutually agreed by both parties that Chapel Net volunteers comprising
mostly of seminarians, priests, religious nuns and lay leaders would send reports to the
Chapel Net Secretariat about the local situation in their respective dioceses, parishes or
voting districts. Meanwhile the Secretariat would relay the reports to local Bombo Radyo
Stations to cover and confirm those reports. Bombo Radyo was also asked to provide media
assistance to Chapel Nets (Seminarians, Priests and Religious Task Force)
SPIRIT FORCE who would be deployed in critical areas and election-fraud hotspots around
Chapel Net also envisions an agreement with ABS-CBN and Radio Veritas.
