In the past weeks, Comelec Malay had encountered problems due to some registrants for the October 28th Baranggay and SK Elections.
Malay Comelec Election Officer II Elma Cahilig cited the dilemmas with the registrants for the youth council.
Cahilig said a number of registrants were underage and they also found that some of them were already registered in different areas.
According to the Election Officer, they will inspect this thoroughly in order to avoid unjustly activities during the elections and also to be fair to those who registered appropriately.
Cahilig added that this will not be allowed to occur in their office, more so that the election is such a sensitive matter in the country.
Violators of Comelec rules can also be invalidated she said.
Meanwhile, the Comelec Malay is now preparing for the filing of Certificate of Candidacy of those who will be running for office.
The filing of COCs for the Baranggay and SK Elections has been extended and will be held on October 11 to 17, 2013.
