Toby Tiangco laments death of ex-Comelec chair Brillantes


It’s sad to see this well-respected man go.

Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco had nothing but kind words to remember Sixto Brillantes, Jr., who succumbed to COVID-19 earlier this week. His legacy is unparalleled, especially for the conversion to automated voting systems.

“I would like to convey my deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathies to the family of Atty. Sixto Brillantes, Jr., former COMELEC chairperson. Atty. Brillantes was a staunch advocate of reforms in the electoral system. He was a great asset to our country, and I am sure he will be missed dearly,” Tiangco said.
