MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has released guidelines for the filing of certificates of candidacy or COC for official candidates and registered political parties in next year’s national elections.

Under Comelec en banc Resolution 8678, those running for president, vice president and senator should file their CoC at the agency’s law department in Intramuros, Manila within November 20 to 30.

Those who will run for members of the House of Representatives for legislative districts in Metro Manila should file with the office of the National Capital Region regional election director, said Comelec spokesman James Jimenez.

The office of the provincial election supervisor (OPES) shall receive the CoCs of those who will run as members of the House of Representatives of legislative districts in provinces and for
provincial officials.

City election officers will receive CoCs for members of the House of Representatives for legislative districts in cities outside NCR, which comprise one or more legislative districts and COCs for city officials of cities with more than one election officer.

CoCs for local positions in cities and municipalities should be filed with the city and municipal election officer concerned.

“Candidates should file their CoC in the form prescribed by the Comelec in five legible copies personally or through his duly authorized representative with the specified Comelec office,” Jimenez said.

“Certificates shall be sworn before a notary public or any official authorized to administer oath and must contain all the prescribed data,” said Jimenez.
