STARTING next month, qualified national candidates for the 2022 polls will be able to avail of the free “e-Rally Page” of the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

In a brief statement on Thursday, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said the page (https://www.facebook.com/COMELECeRallyChannel) will be made available for “all bona fide candidates for the positions of President, Vice President and Senator, as well as to each participating Party-List Organization.”

“The Commission will issue the pertinent guidelines on how the candidates and party-list organizations can participate in the e-Rally channel,” Jimenez said.

He noted the channel aims to provide additional exposure to all national candidates.

The poll official said they will start airing materials from the said candidates in February 8, 2022.

Each night from the said date, Jimenez said they will allocate 3 slots (10 minutes each) for presidential aspirants, and another 3 slots for vice presidential
candidates.

For senatorial candidates, it will be 5 slots per night (3 minutes each). There will also be the same number of slots for party-list organization per night.

In the case of political parties, it will be 3 slots per night (10 minutes each).

In a related development, Comelec also reminded all candidates and political parties/coalitions that the deadline for them to register their official accounts, web sites, blogs and/or other social-media pages is on January 31, 2022.

The pages should be registered with the Comelec Education and Information Department (EID) through https://bit.ly/2022NLESocMed pursuant to Section 9 (c) of Comelec Resolution No. 10730.

Only the registered accounts can be used by candidates and political parties/coalitions for the endorsement of his/her candidacy or candidacies of its members.
