“Matatapos po yung ating filing ng October 17. So, ora mismo pagpatak ng October 18, nag-eevaluate na kami niyan ‘no. So, ang expected natin na labas ng final list of candidates, mga December po,” Jimenez said in an interview with Radyo Inquirer.


(We will finish our filing on October 17. So, as soon as the 18th comes, we will start evaluating the candidates. So we’re expecting to release the final list of candidates by December.)

The filing of COCs started last Thursday, October 11, and will end on October 17.
