Youth, do a little sacrifice – leave Mobile Legend for a minute and go directly to your Commission on Election offices.
COMELEC announces that the voter registration is now open from Mondays to Saturdays until 5 in the afternoon.
Yes! You heard it right! Until Saturday, to give way to those who have no time to register because of work and school during weekdays.
COMELEC is way behind its target of 4M new voters.
REGISTER! YOUR VOTE MATTERS THIS 2022!
At least 18 years old, a resident of the Philippines for at least one year, and a resident for at least six months of the city or municipality where the one intends to vote.
Those who will visit the COMELEC offices should observe proper health protocols, wear masks, ace shields, and observe physical distancing.
The registration will end on September 30, 2021.
Hail to the truth-tellers
The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines hails the nomination of media groups and our country’s very own Maria Ressa for the Nobel Peace Prize.
More than the prestige the Nobel brings, the nomination is a welcome recognition of the vital role of the independent media in an age where journalists and news organizations are seen and treated as enemies by governments and groups for whom the truth is anathema.
The Committee to Protect Journalists and Reporters Without Borders have long been staunch allies in the continuing struggle to defend press freedom and keep journalists safe, while the International Fact-Checking Network’s partners around the world, including Rappler and Vera Files, have helped stem the tide of disinformation and misinformation from drowning out the truth.
We hope this testament to independent journalism will help make the world a safer place for the truth and for truth-tellers.
