The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has decided to keep the shorter or aggregate time limit on the advertisement of candidates for the May elections, poll chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. said Friday.

“Pina-finalize na namin,” he said, referring to Resolution 9615. “We will retain the aggregate [time limit with some changes in right of reply,” Brillantes told reporters.

Interviewed at the sideline  of the retirement ceremony for Commissioners Rene Sarmiento and Armand Velasco, Brillantes said he expects to see the final copy of the resolution within the day so Sarmiento and Velasco, who will retire on February 2, will be able to sign it.

He said the amended resolution may be released on Monday.

GMA Network Inc. and Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas have earlier asked the Comelec to reconsider its resolution. — Amita O. Legaspi/KBK, GMA News
