When will the list of certified absentee voters in Iran be released?
Within 120 days of the formal election campaign period, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) will transmit a list of confirmed foreign voters to various diplomatic embassies across the world.
The COMELEC made the announcement in an official statement: “Preparation and Posting of Certified List of Overseas Absentee Voters. – The Commission shall prepare the Certified List of Overseas Absentee Voters within one hundred twenty (120) days before every election, and furnish within the same period copies thereof to the appropriate embassies, consulates, and other foreign service establishments, which shall post the same in their bulletin boards within ten (10) days from receipt thereof.”
Reminders When Voting During PH Elections
The government values citizens’ votes because they allow Filipinos from all over the world to participate in the country’s political and social issues. The ideal candidate will be able to effectively lead the country through its current issues while also conveying a positive image of Filipinos across the world.
Remember To Vote Wisely
When selecting a leader, voters should consider the candidates’ perspectives and personality traits. When it comes time to vote for a new president, these will assist us in making an informed decision. Only individuals with compelling ideas and a clear vision for the people and the country should be considered for positions of leadership. Examine the candidates’ policies to discover if they have a strategy for improving the lives of Filipinos residing abroad.
The Importance of Overseas Voting
The upcoming election will have a lot riding on it. Furthermore, the importance of votes cast by Filipinos residing abroad cannot be overstated. Over a million Filipinos have left the country to live or work in foreign countries. Their earnings contribute to the growth of the Philippine economy.
Despite Iran’s small Filipino presence, Filipinos in Tehran and other areas of the country are united by ties to their hometown, family, and shared experiences of living abroad for decades or more.
Because most of these people work, they may influence how their families are handled. As a result, every vote cast by a Filipino residing in another country counts; make sure yours is one of them.
With only a few weeks till Election Day, overseas Filipinos must brace themselves for the new leaders who will drive our nation along a more progressive route.
Many people are surprised by the number of people who have demonstrated their ability to lead the country, as well as the emergence of dubious candidates claiming to be “the one” – but isn’t this true in every election?
As a result, your vote will be important in selecting a president with the traits and talents required to lead the country through these hard times.
It would be excellent to have a leader who can address the country’s current problems while also displaying a positive image to the rest of the world.
To achieve its objectives, the country will require leaders who are devoted to democracy and freedom. When selecting leaders for future elections, it is critical that we all work together to strengthen the country. Let us use our collective strength, as demonstrated by our votes, to improve our home nation, the Philippines, regardless of where we are in the globe.
So, are you qualified to vote in future elections based on your review of the CLOV supplied by your host country? What benefits have you gotten from this process? Were there any difficulties or problems that you encountered, and did you bring these to the attention of the Philippine diplomatic representation in your country? Please leave a comment to let us know what you think.
