The Commission on Elections will resume the processing of voters registration and application for voters certification on July 1 in Baguio and all Benguet municipalities.

Because of the quarantine, aspiring voters must accomplish all of the required forms, which can be downloaded from the agency website, because of social distancing rules that allow poll officials to deal with only one applicant at a time, said lawyer Elenita Tabangin-Capuyan, Benguet election supervisor.

All applicants will be required to wear face masks and gloves at all times, except when they are required to submit their biometric data, such as fingerprints, she said.

The Comelec will maintain health safety protocols by requiring applicants to frequently wash their hands before and after handling agency tools and devices.

Baguio Boy is Next PNP Chief

UPDATE: Lieutenant General Camilo Cascolan is the next Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, replacing retiring top cop General Archie Gamboa, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año confirmed to Rappler on Tuesday, September 1.

Cascolan is set to retire on November 10 as he reaches the mandatory age of retirement of 56, unless President Rodrigo Duterte decides to extend his term.

Asked about Cascolan's possible short term, Año said the public should not focus on the span of his stint, but the work to be done.

"Matagal pa naman ang 2 months (2 months is still long). We don't think of that yet. There is a lot to be done," he said.

In terms of seniority, Cascolan was next in line to be chief as the deputy chief for administration of the PNP. He belongs to the Philippine Military Academy Sinagtala Class of 1986.

...

Police Lt. Gen. Camilo Pancratius Cascolan will serve as officer-in-charge of the Philippine National Police (PNP) upon the retirement of Gen. Archie Gamboa on Wednesday, Malacañang said Tuesday.

Known by his nickname "Pikoy," Cascolan is also a member of the Philippine Military Academy Class of 1986, to which his two predecessors, Police Generals Gamboa and (now Senator) Ronald de la Rosa also belonged.

A native of Baguio City, he is a product of the Maryknoll Convent School and the University of the Philippines Baguio High School.

Magalong: Hindi tayo susuko... The goal is clear, to build Baguio back in far better ways

"Hindi tayo susuko... The goal is clear, to build Baguio back in far better ways."

"Hihilom tayo. Babangon tayo ng tuluyan. Babalik ang Baguio sa higit pang ganda, sa higit pang gayuma at sa isang progresong walang naiwan."

"Ating tandaan, nasa Diyos ang awa, nasa atin pa rin ang gawa. Salamat ng marami sa inyong pagsuporta at pagtitiwala."
