Senator proclamation will not be delayed – COMELEC

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) will issue the proclamation of 12 senators in the Philippines.

The Comelec said that it was ready to proclaim the winning senators in the just-concluded May 9 polls.

Spokesman, lawyer John Rex Laudiangco, said that they are looking at the proclamation to be issued after determining the Certificates of Canvass (COCs).

“By immediate, we mean that the canvass had practically covered and most of the COCs and those remaining votes perhaps referring to a special election will not anymore affect the canvass,” he said in a press conference.

“If we reach that point, the Comelec will not delay the proclamation. I think we want this to be over and done with. The earlier we could proclaim the better… it will be a big savings to the government… we will not delay. For as long as we had canvassed and the remaining votes will not affect anymore (the results), I know for sure the NBOC (National Board of Canvasser) will schedule the proclamation,” the Comelec official added.

Laudiangco also urged candidates to remove their campaign materials saying, ” e are asking all candidates, please continue cleaning up your campaign materials. Let us be environment friendly and compliant.”
