COMELEC accepts Duterte’s COC for substitution

In a vote of 6-1, the COMELEC en banc accepted the substitution of Rodrigo Duterte to PDP-Laban’s presidential candidate Martin Diño.

On Thursday December 17, the COMELEC released their decision regarding Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Dutertes substitution to PDP-Laban’s initial bet Martin Diño. The COMELEC who voted 6-1 (6 in favor and 1 in-favor) accepted Duterte’s COC for president as the substitute candidate for PDP-Laban’s Martin Diño.

While COMELEC has finally accepted Duterte as an official candidate for the 2016 Philippine elections, COMELEC Chairman Andres Bautista however explained the decision is just for the ministerial and administrative process of accepting a candidates COC. The decisio is separate and is not connected to the disqualification case being heard in the 1st division.
