Former Defense Sec. Gibo Teodoro To Run in 2022

Initially, the poll body said it cannot afford to extend the voter registration period for another month but it convened as it assured the people that it is listening to the clamors of the public.

Both the House of Representatives and Senate passed bills seeking to extend the voter registration period. COMELEC approved the extension from October 11 to October 30.
