New Sched of PH Embassy in Hong Kong for April & May

Posted by:

Filipinos based in Hong Kong are advised by the Philippine Consulate General (PCG) there that their office will adopt a new schedule for the months of April and May to give way to the overseas absentee voting.

As announced by the Philippine Consulate, they will suspend their Sunday operations starting April 14 as the overseas absentee voting will start on April 13.

The absentee voting will go on for a month so the Consulate’s office is also obliged to adopt a Monday-to-Friday schedule from April 12 to May 10.

The announcement said, “Regular Sunday services shall be suspended from April 14 to May 12 because Consulate staff shall be assigned at the Bayanihan Center for the Overseas Voting.”

The absentee voting will be from April 13 to May 13. Filipino voters can vote hours from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, Mondays to Saturdays; and 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sundays. They will also be open to accommodate voters on May 1 even if it is a holiday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Their regular services will also be suspended on May 14, Tuesday for the counting of ballots and canvassing of elections returns.

Registered but Inactive Absentee Voters Face Deletion

Posted by:

The Resolution No. 9567 from the Commission on Elections (Comelec) states that almost 240,000 migrant voters can be removed from NROAV because of their failure to vote in the 2007 and 2010 elections.

However, the Comelec decided to give the delinquent migrant voters a chance by filing a manifestation to participate in the May 2013 elections until December 21.

Affected voters can file their manifestation to participate in the upcoming elections by going to the embassies, consulates or Foreign Service establishments nearest to their location. It will then be forwarded the to the Comelec’s Committee on Overseas Absentee Voting.

The manifestation should specify the post where they are registered, their maternal middle name and birth date to “ascertain their identity.”

 

Update: The Dec 21 deadline is moved to January 11.
