TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, January 25, (PIA) –The Commission on Elections (Comelec) would suspend its ongoing voter's registration and validation for the May 2016 national and local elections From February 1-28, to give way to the preparations for the Sangguniang Kabataan Elections set February 21. 

Through Comelec Resolution No. 9905, issued October 21, the poll body has set the following activities in line with the upcoming youth polls:

Election period started last January 22 and would continue until March 2, 2015, it being 30 days before and 15 days after election day. 

Filing of certificates of candidacy for SK Officials would be from February 7, 9, and 10, 2015. February 8 is a Sunday, so the next official working day would be the last day of filing of candidacy certificates, according to Atty Eliseo Labaria, at the recent Kapihan sa PIA.

Comelec Resolution No. 9905 also listed down prohibited acts during the election and campaign periods, on election eve, and on election day.

From then, election campaign period starts on the 11th and continues until the midnight of the 19th, 2015, when the campaign ban starts until election day. 

By February 21, 2015, registered SK members would be trooping to the polling precincts which would be officially opened by 7 am to 3 pm.

Canvassing of votes immediately follow the elections, where the Board of Election Tellers would be school teachers on poll duty. 

From February 22 to March 23, 2015, the Comelec has set these dates for filing of statements of contributions and expenses (SOCE). 

Bohol Comelec supervisor Labaria reminds candidates: winning or losing, not to forget to file the SOCE, as failure would stop one winning candidate from taking his official oath of office. 

For losing candidates, failure to file the SOCE would be a ground for permanent disqualification from running in any elective position, not withstanding, a fine which the COMELEC may determine. 

The poll body scheduled other SK election-related activities as well, like the period to constitute the members of the Board of Election Tellers (BET), and the periods for the filing of petitions for inclusion and exclusion of voters.

It may be recalled that there have been moves to reset the February 2015 SK polls, which was originally slated for October 28, 2013. 

The move is sad to allow Congress to legislate reforms in the youth representation system. Not much has been heard about the postponement anymore. (RAC/PIABohol)
