MANILA, Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte has nominated Davao del Norte Provincial Election Supervisor Aimee Ferolino-Ampoloquio as commissioner of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC), Malacañang said Thursday.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said Duterte signed Ampoloquio’s nomination on Nov. 24.
“With her vast experience in election matters, Ms. Ampoloquio, would certainly contribute in ensuring our elections would be honest, orderly, peaceful, and credible,” Roque said in a statement.
The poll body has welcomed the nomination of Ampoloquio.
She will fill the position of COMELEC Commissioner Al Parreño who retired last February.
Should the Commission on Appointments approve her nomination, Ampoloquio will serve as Commissioner for a term expiring on February 2, 2027.
Lawyer Ampoloquio first joined COMELEC in 1994 as an emergency laborer then became an election assistant for 12 years.
She also served as an election officer in the First District of Davao City for a decade before she became the Provincial Election Supervisor of Davao del Norte.
MANILA, Philippines — Mayor Abigail Binay has announced that residents of Makati City can now avail of polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests for P2,950.
In My Makati Facebook post, Binay reported that the price of the RT-PCR test in the city is much lower than those offered in hospitals and private clinics around Metro Manila which usually costs around P4,500 to P8,000.
The city government made it more affordable, allowing asymptomatic individuals and those having no close contact with positive patients to be tested as well.
The said move is part of the city government’s mass testing efforts to break the chains of transmission while waiting for the vaccine for coronavirus disease (COVID-19). —MNP / Rhussel Egano
