THE Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Provincial Office assured its readiness to hold the Barangay and SK Elections on October 30, 2017.
Lawyer Marino Salas, provincial election supervisor, said COMELEC offices in Pangasinan are ready to accept certificates of candidacies (COC’s) starting on September 23 until September 30.
He said Comelec’s calendar of activities for the Barangay and SK Elections remains unchanged because no law has been passed postponing the holding of scheduled elections this October.
The local Comelec is holding a series of meetings with the members of the election boards composed of teachers who act as canvassers inside the precincts.
Salas said the gun ban will also take effect on September 23 until October 30.
On the part of the Pangasinan Police Provincial Office, P/Chief Inspector Norman Florentino said PPPO is ready to enforce the ban. (Nora Dominguez)
