With just over 230 days to go before the 2019 midterm elections, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) again finds itself in the thick of preparations for the upcoming polls.

However, a major activity in the election timeline – the filing of certificates of candidacy – has been moved by more than a week later than originally set, now scheduled from October 11 to 17. 

Despite this, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez says the poll body is confident that it can finish the necessary preparations for the upcoming elections.
