The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has not ordered the suspension of the canvassing of votes on November 1, a holiday, poll chief Sixto Brillantes Jr. said.
“Pwede naman nila ituloy kung gusto nila. Pero wala kaming order to suspend. It’s (within) the discretion of canvassers to suspend the canvassing,” Brillantes said.
He said Comelec intends to finish canvassing by Thursday. “Kung hindi kakayanin, siguro mag-su-suspend sila sa holiday. Pero puwede silang matuloy sa Sabado o Linggo,” he added.
