The Commission on Elections (Comelec) met with representatives from the police and military, among other government agencies, in connection with the conduct of in-person campaigns, motorcades and other related activities of candidates for the May elections amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement, Comelec Commissioner Rey Bulay said that aside from the police and the military, the virtual meeting led by the National Comelec Campaign Committee (NCCC) secretariat drew representatives of the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department  of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

The campaign period for national candidates starts on February 8, while the campaign period for local bets starts on March 8.

"The Comelec, through the NCCC, wishes to assure the public that the duly constituted campaign committees nationwide stand ready to implement the guidelines institutionalizing the new normal in the conduct of in-person campaigns, rallies, caucuses, miting de avance, motorcades and caravans for the 2022 National and Local Elections," Bulay said.

"In the enforcement of these guidelines and prosecution of violations thereof, we  are likewise assured by the commitment of the deputized agencies who have been our valued partners through the years  in ensuring not just a free, honest, peaceful  and  credible electoral exercise but a safe one," Bulay added.

Comelec had earlier issued Resolution No. 10732 which authorizes the NCCC to classify the Category Level of each region, province city, and municipality, in conformity with the alert Level classification issued by Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID).

The guidelines fully outline the appeals process in case the designated category level is reclassified, the application process prior to the conduct of any election campaign activity and the corresponding documentary requirements. 

The 2022 elections is set on May 9. — RSJ, GMA News
