Why Comelec will hold special election in Mountain Province

ABS-CBN News

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is planning to hold a special election in the Mountain Province after May 9.

The decision comes a month after the death of Governor Leonard Mayaen, who was running for re-election unopposed.

Comelec chairman Andres Bautista said a substitute candidate for Mayaen will not be allowed since the late governor was running as an independent.

Mayaen died on March 31 after experiencing cardiac arrest.
