PJ Garcia: no to voter’s registration extension

Posted on November 6, 2012


The voters’ registration which ended last Oct. 31 should not be extended, said One Cebu standard beared Rep. Pablo John Garcia of Cebu’s 3rd district.

“Filipinos need to be disciplined,” said Garcia.

He was reacting to the demand of the Kabataan party list for the Commission on Election (Comelec) to re-open the voters registration to enable many first-time voters among the youth to register.

Two years to register or transfer one’s voter’s registartion “ is more than enough time,” he said last Saturday.

However, his runningmate Boboy Durano, said he favors an extended schedule

Durano said he supports Kabataan party list’s petition to re-open registration especially for the first-time voters.
