MANILA, Philippines – Inaprubahan ng Commission on Appointments ang ad interim appointment nina Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioners Nelson Celis at Ernesto Maceda Jr.

Si Celis, na ang termino ay magtatapos sa Peb. 2, 2029, ay nangako sa CA na itataguyod niya ang mga modernized electoral exercises.

“My advocacy has not been limited to writing over a hundred articles related to compliances and implementation of automated election system law in a regular column of one of our major newspapers from 2014 to 2022. I have contributed my technical expertise in crafting the provisions of RA 9369 or the Automated Election Law,” ani Celis.

“I have also served as a consultant of the Commission on Elections and have provided inputs for the execution of the Comelec’s automation project with the Philippine Computer Society,” dagdag pa niya.

Si Celis ay co-convener ng Automated Election System Watch, isang election watchdog na nagsusulong para sa malinis at tapat na mga automated na botohan, at naging tagapagsalita nito noong 2011.

Samantala, nangako si Maceda na sosolusyunan ang mga election gap.

“As a legal-reform advocate, I will work with the Commission en banc on programs that allow for a deep meaningful study of our rules precedent to protect constitutional values,” aniya pa.

Si Maceda, anak ng yumaong dating Senate President Ernesto Maceda Sr., ay isang kilalang abogado sa halalan at propesor ng batas sa halalan sa Arellano University at Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila. RNT
