DUBAI: The Philippine Consulate here was a beehive of activity as regular services, from passport renewal to attestations and other documentary requirements, resumed with staff and personnel tending to hundreds of overseas Filipino workers queueing in for their transactions.

“We were constrained with election work on Monday May13 and the following day, May 14. Dinagsa na talaga tayo nitong May 15 and 16 para sa mga passport releasing, notarial releasing at iba pa. During those days, May 13 and 14, talagang kinontian namin yung passport releasing in anticpaition of the election work that we were instructed to do,” Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes told The Filipino Times in an exclusive interview, Thursday.

The consulate has approximately 40 staff attending to various functions. All hands were on deck during the 31-day long overseas absentee voting for the Philippine midterm polls which involved a senatorial race for 12 seats and one for a party-list representative in the lower house.

The electoral exercise concluded on May 13 after which official count started at around 3pm following closure of the polling stations at the consulate grounds at 2pm that day.

Corrupted SD cards also caused delays in the final count which was completed around dawn of May 17 at the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi.
