Comelec moves deadline of registration for political party coalition
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has extended the deadline of registration for coalition of political parties.
Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez said on Tuesday that the deadline of registration is moved to September 15.
“Pursuant to Comelec Resolution No. 10415, filing of petitions for registration of coalition of political parties is extended from August 31, 2018 to September 15, 2018,” Jimenez said in a statement.
The deadline for the filing of petitions for registration of political parties was in July 15, 2018, pursuant to Resolution No. 10395, but was also extended to July 16, 2018 since the prior deadline fell on a Sunday.
Under Section 61, Article VIII of the Omnibus Election Code, “Any organized group of persons seeking registration as a national or regional political party may file with the Commission a verified petition attaching thereto its constitution and by-laws, platform or program of government and such other relevant information as may be required by the Commission. The Commission shall, after due notice and hearing, resolve the petition within ten days from the date it is submitted for decision.” /jpv
