The Commission on Elections extended the deadline for the filing of Certificate of Candidacy for the October 28 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.
COMELEC Spokesman James Jimenez said that the extension of COC was because of the influx of candidates.
From the initial three day filing, the COMELEC decided to make it to six days, from October 11 until the 17th, except for October 13 which falls on a Sunday.
Under Resolution no. 9740, the COMELEC En Banc states that all running for Barangay Captain, member of the Sangguniang Barangay, Sangguniang Kabataan Chairman and member will have to file their COC.
