The Commission on Elections (Comelec) admitted that they did not expect the huge number of registrants for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.

While many are suspected to be products of “hakutan” or registrants from other barangays, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said there is nothing illegal about the practice, at least during registration. -- Iba-Balita, Studio 23, August 1, 2013
