Nagtapos na kahapon ang filing ng certificate of candidacy (COC) at certificate of nomination and acceptance (CONA) ng mga nais tumakbo sa 2019 midterm elections.

Batay sa tala ng Commission on Elections (COMELEC), aabot sa 152 ang kumandidato sa pagka-senador kung saan 132 dito ang lalake habang 21 ang babae.

Nasa 185 namang party-list group ang naghain ng CONA sa kabuuan ng limang araw na filing.

Sa lokal naman, 108 ang kumandidato sa pagka-gobernador, 69 sa pagka-bise gobernador habang 1,838 naman ang naghain ng kanilang COC para sa pagka-alkalde.

Ayon kay COMELEC Commissioner Rowena Guanzon, hindi na gaanong nagmukhang circus ang paghahain ng COC at CONA ngayon kumpara sa nakaraang eleksyon.

“Compared to the last election this is not a circus like. No one who calls himself “Lucifer” filed for a position. I think that generally the candidates here that filed were quite earnest in saying you know, I want to file my candidacy for senator because I’m qualified and I want to be heard about reforms in government what I would like to do.” Pahayag ni Guanzon.

Ngayong natapos na ang paghahain ng kandidatura inilatag ni COMELEC Commissioner Marlon Casquejo ang mga sunod na tututukan ng ahensya kabilang ang pagsala sa  mga kandidato.

“We are on going of our local source code review and after this filing there will be moto propio cases for nuisance candidates and we are going to cleanse only those qualified candidates. That will be heard mabilisan because we are going to cleanse it by December 15. Some party-list and political parties are still pending it’s already out for resolution so we are going to decide it also. And for party-list, if their party-list is denied they will not be considered as candidate for party-list.” Pahayag ni Casquejo.

Samantala, sinabi ni Guanzon na mahalaga ang midterm elections dahil sa magsisilbi itong batayan at paghahanda para sa 2022 presidential elections.

“The midterm election is very important presidential election and the Senate. The Senate is the institution where…no offense to the House of Representatives where big fights happen. So, midterm elections we have to encourage the people to come out and vote because the senators are very important in our democracy.” Ani Guanzon.
