A Philippine political candidate and ally of President Gloria Arroyo was shot and killed today (Saturday) at a rally to launch his campaign for provincial governor.

Police say Rommel Diasen, a 57-year-old candidate for governor in the northern province of Kalinga, was shot several times while delivering a campaign speech. He later died at a hospital while being treated for multiple gunshot wounds.

Police say they are looking into political as well as local disputes as a possible motive for the shooting.

Elections in the Philippines can be violent. Next month (on May 14th), voters will elect
candidates for more than 17-thousand local positions and for seats in the country's two houses of parliament.
