Welcome Message from Commissioner Christian Robert Lim
It is an honor to welcome you to the official page of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC).
Technology has never infiltrated people’s lives as it seems to do today. The recognition of the use of the cyberspace as a new age information and communication tool has led the Commission to seek new ways to enhance and improve this website. What you’re seeing today is a testament of our commitment to actively involve our stakeholders, the Filipino nation, by providing a more accessible and interactive website.
No electoral system is free from any challenges and setbacks. With the recognition of the surging demands for a holistic electoral reform, the Commission has prepared and embarked on the implementation of the COMELEC Strategic Plan for 2011-2016 (COMSTRAT 1116). It is with this transformative framework that we intend to continue to fulfill our constitutional mandate of ensuring a free, orderly, honest, peaceful and credible election.
In the interest of promoting a more responsive and transparent discourse, I extend an invitation to you to take time to explore our website. Thank you!
