MANILA (UPDATED) — The Commission on Elections on Tuesday finally released the final list of national and local candidates, and party-list groups that have made it in the official Halalan 2022 ballots for the May 9 polls. 

The Comelec uploaded on its website Tuesday the “final ballot faces” or templates of the official Halalan 2022 ballots to be printed for several sets of voters.

  5. Ping Lacson
  6. Faisal Mangondato

Meanwhile, 9 candidates were allowed to vie for vice president:

  3. Rizalito David
  4. Sara Duterte
  5. Manny Lopez
  6. Willie Ong
  7. Francis Pangilinan

  9. Vicente "Tito" Sotto III

The content of the ballots vary per municipality. Ballots for localities would contain the names of their local candidates, while those for overseas voters would only have national candidates and party-list groups. 

Absent in the ballots are 2 national candidates who were earlier declared by Comelec as “nuisance” but recently obtained temporary restraining orders from the Supreme Court.

Comelec has yet to confirm the date when the ballot face was finalized, which would determine if they complied with the SC TROs. 

The Comelec said they aim to finish the printing of Halalan 2022 ballots on April 21.
