The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has finally awarded the P1.6-billion contract for the transportation of election paraphernalia for the 2022 polls to F2 Logistics despite concerns over the supposed link of its owner to President Duterte.

In a brief statement on Wednesday, Comelec spokesman James Jimenez confirmed the Comelec en banc has approved the Notice of Award to the said company.

He said the Comelec en banc made the decision after it was able to complete the “post-qualification”  process for the said contract.

“The post-qualification process had already been ongoing for more than a week prior,” Jimenez said.

Election watchdogs opposed the said transaction amid reports that F2 Logistics reportedly owned by Davao businessman Dennis Uy.

Uy was among the top campaign contributors of Duterte during the 2016 elections.   

Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon earlier said that the identity of the owner of a company does not affect its qualification when it participates in public bidding.
