Comelec might have 2 new commissioners before April 10
MANILA, Philippines—The Commission on Elections (Comelec) could have two new commissioners before April 10, according to a report on Radyo Inquirer 990am Tuesday.
Previously, President Benigno Aquino III appointed two commissioners to replace the posts vacated by Rene Sarmiento and Armando Velasco.
The appointees, Bernadette Sardillio and Macabangkit Lanto, both declined the appointment. Sardillio cited as reason health and family concerns while Lanto cited a previous election fraud case against him when he ran for a congressional post in Lanao del Norte in 1992.
