All certificates of candidacy must be in by Friday (April 20).

Commission on Elections spokesperson James Jimenez said there will be no extension for the filing of COCs for the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections on May 14.

He said aspirants will have until 5 p.m. on Friday to file their COCs at their nearest Comelec center.

The poll body has so far received more than 100,000 applications, according to Jimenez.

He said the number is small considering the number of available positions.

The Comelec said there are 31,900 chairmanships and 263,000 council positions up for grabs for the village and youth polls.

The election period began on April 14 which also marked the first day of the filing of COCs and start of the election gun ban.
