Comelec reshuffles election officers in 3 Visayas cities


Election officers in three highly urbanized cities in Western Visayas have been reshuffled by the Commission on Elections, ahead of the May 13 midterm elections.

One of those affected, Bacolod City Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia, said reshuffle the order took effect Feb. 12.

Majarucon-Sia was ordered transferred to Iloilo City, to be replaced by Election Officer IV Ann Janette Lamban, who is from Lapu-Lapu City.

Election Officer Reinier Layson IV leave his post in Iloilo City to assume Lamban’s former assignment.

But Majarucon-Sia said she requested to extend the date of her assumption as election officer of Iloilo City, saying she needs at least a week to wind up her activities in Comelec-Bacolod.

She said said Layson will turn over his post to her on Feb. 19, and she will take over as acting election officer of Iloilo City.
