Laudiangco remains as Comelec acting spokesperson
MANILA, Philippines — Commission on Elections’ (Comelec) Law Department Director Atty. John Rex Laudiangco will remain as the poll body’s acting spokesperson.
In a memorandum dated June 10, Comelec acting chairperson Commissioner Socorro Inting stated Laudiangco’s continued designation.
“Please be advised that you shall continue to be the Acting Spokesperson of the Commission until the assumption of the new Chairman,” the memorandum read.
Laudiangco was initially named the acting Comelec spokesperson in May, taking over the position of James Jimenez.
Jimenez was relieved from being spokesperson following the presidential and vice presidential town hall debate fiasco.
Meanwhile, Inting is serving as the Comelec acting chair since the confirmation of former chair Saidamen Pangarungan has been bypassed in the Commission on Appointments.
