Comelec eyes proclamation of all winning party-list groups after May 24 special elections in Lanao del Sur

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is eyeing to hold the proclamation of winning party-list groups on May 25.

In a press conference on Thursday, Acting Comelec spokesperson John Rex C. Laudiangco said they may be able to conduct the proclamation after the special elections in 12 barangays Tubaran in Lanao Del Sur, which is scheduled on May 24, 2022. 

“We will proceed, hopefully, on May 25 with the proclamation of the winning partylist candidates,” Laudiangco said. “We could proceed with it immediately after the May 24 special elections in Lanao del Sur.”  

He noted there are 11,557 voters in Tubaran making it crucial for determining the seat allocation for party-list groups. 

To note, Comelec will be conducting a special election in 14 barangays in Lanao Del Sur after it declared a failure of election in the said areas due to election-related violence. 

The poll body is also set to conduct a special election in Shanghai, China since the ongoing lockdown in the area is preventing the conduct of any election there. 

The deferred election in Lanao Del Sur and Shanghai affected 685,643 voters as for Shanghai it covered 1,991 votes.  

Laudiangco said he is confident that the special election in Shanghai will have no or minimal effect on the seat allocation for party-list groups.

“We will proceed, hopefully, on May 25 with the proclamation of the winning partylist candidates,” Laudiangco said.
