Comelec says no
But city officials insist on extension

It’s final.

The Commission on Elections yesterday unanimously ruled en banc that there will be no extension to the registration of voters, COMELEC chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. said.

Registration of voters for the October 28 Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections ended at 5 p.m. yesterday, he said.

COMELEC spokesman James Jimenez said the decision was reached despite the clamor for an extension because the COMELEC needs to complete the full process for registration for all applicants by August 31.moremoremore
