Seniority rules

PNP spokesperson Brig. Gen. Bernard Banac said the new appointments that took effect on Thursday were made “following the rule of succession by seniority and due to vacancy in position.”

Meanwhile, Eleazar, in his capacity as Joint Task Force COVID Shield commander, said that policemen would be deployed to voter registration centers nationwide to maintain order and also ensure that people follow health protocols, including the wearing of face masks and face shields.

“Securing the voter registration should be [done] until the last days of the schedule since we all know that people usually flock to the [Commission on Election] offices to register a few days leading to the deadline,” he said in a statement.
