THE Commission on Elections (Comelec) en banc convened on Tuesday as the National Plebiscite Board of Canvassers (NPBC) but adjourned immediately because it has not received any certificates canvass (CoCs) from the regions that voted to ratify the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL).
Comelec Chairman Sheriff Abbas reset the canvassing of votes to January 23.
Monday’s plebiscite was held the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), Isabela City in Basilan and Cotabato City in Maguindanao.
A second plebiscite is scheduled on February 6, covering the provinces of Lanao del Norte, except Iligan City, the municipalities of Aleosan, Carmen, Kabacan, Midsayap, Pikit, and Pigkawayan in the province of North Cotabato,; and all other areas contagious to the Bangsamoro core areas where the local government of such areas, by way of a resolution, asked for the inclusion in the plebiscite or at least 10 percent of the registered voters in a local government unit, by way of a petition asked for inclusion in the plebiscite.
