THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) today junked the petition filed by the Duterte Youth Partylist against the substitution of P3PWD partylist representatives.
This came about after the Comelec En Banc affirmed the recommendation of the poll body’s Law Department that said the petition against the substitution should have been done before the elections and not after.
Bukod dito, ang subsitution ng P3PWD ay salig rin sa naging desisyon ng Comelec noong 2019 kung saan pinayagan ang pag-atras at pagpapalit ng mga kinatawan ng Duterte Youth Partylist
The Comelec further clarified that the new list of nominees of P3PWD partylist underwent the process last June 15.
In relation to this, Comelec Spokesperson Atty. John Rex Laudiangco confirmed that the certificate of proclamation of former Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon as substitute for P3PWD Partylist is already being routed for signature by the other commissioners.
The certificate will also be submitted to the Secretary General of the House of Representatives.
