The Commission on Elections (Comelec) reiterated on Friday, July 13, the deadlines for filing of petitions of registrations of political parties for next year’s National and Local elections.
In a press statement, the Comelec said that it has set “The last day of the registration of political parties on July 15, 2018 and the registration of the coalition of political parties on August 31, 2018, pursuant to Resolution No. 10395.”
Comelec added “However, since the deadline falls on a Sunday, submissions of petitions for political parties will be entertained until 5:00 PM of July 16, 2018, Monday.”
