Broadcast journalist Raffy Tulfo, former Senator JV Ejercito, and Joel “Pastor” Apolinario will seek Senate seats in the May 9, 2022 polls and filed their certificate of candidacies (COCs) on Saturday.
Meanwhile, a seventh person aspiring president filed his COC also on Saturday, which turned out to be another lean day for filing COCs. His name is Victoriano Inte.
On Friday, Senator Manny Pacquiao and his running mate, Buhay Party-list Rep. Lito Atienza, filed their COCs along with three candidates for Vice President and 14 Senate hopefuls.
For the party-list race that will offer 63 slots, five groups joined the initial 18 and submitted their Certificates of Nomination and Acceptance – APEC, PHILRECA, RECOBODA, Ako Padayon Pilipino, and Abang Lingkod.
A COC must be filed personally, even by a representative. No COC via mail, electronic mail, or facsimile shall be accepted.
