Comelec-Iloilo Assurance

ILOILO CITY, Iloilo - The Commission on Elections (Comelec) in Iloilo province assured that there is no interchanging of names of candidates in the official ballot for mayor of San Enrique town, this province.

Atty. Jesse Suarez, provincial director of the Comelec in Iloilo province, emphasized that the names of mayoralty candidates Nikko Fernandez who belong to the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA)party and Ramona Palabrica-Go of the Liberal Party (LP) have not been interchanged in the official ballot for the May 13 polls.

Comelec rules stipulate that the number sequencing of candidates in the official ballot is based on alphabetical order of the surnames of the candidates.

Last February, the camp of Go complained that Comelec-San Enrique allegedly interchanged the names of the two candidates in the list. The sequence initially listed Go as first and Fernandez second.

Suarez emphasized that all ballots will come from the Comelec central office in Manila.

He added that since it is a national and local election, each ballot will contain the names of national and local candidates including both mayoralty candidates.

Suarez said their names will appear with the proper sequence on the official ballot that will be given to voters during voting day on May 13.
