Comelec gives filing of COC extension for quake-hit areas

The Commission on Elections has given candidates in earthquake-hit areas who are intending to file their certificate of candidacy (COC) an extension.

Veronica Petalcorin, Comelec Assistant Election Director for region 7 said that the commission will give an extension after central Visayas was hit by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake.

Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. made it clear that they only filed for the extension of filing of the COC but not for the cancellation of the Barangay elections.
