Comelec bares 2016 calendar of activities

THE Commission on Elections (Comelec), through an en banc resolution, has fixed the calendar of activities for the national and local elections next year.

First district election officer Stephen Roy Cañete said the schedule for the filing of Certificate of Candidacy (COC) is from October 12 to 16 this year pursuant to Resolution 9981 promulgated on Tuesday.

Cañete said the continuing registration and validation will be temporarily suspended during the period to pave way for the filing of the COC.

The election period for the 2016 national and local elections is from January 10 to June 8, 2016, said Cañete.

He said a gun ban will also be in effect during the election period.

The election is set to be held on May 9, 2016. (Bong Garcia)
