Plebiscite for Palawan’s division into 3 provinces set on March 13

THE COMMISSION on Elections (Comelec) announced that the plebiscite that will determine the division of Palawan into three separate provinces will be held on March 13, 2021. In its Resolution No. 10682 dated December 16 and published on Tuesday, the Comelec en banc set the voting date as well as the plebiscite period from February 11 to March 20. During this period, authorized activities include campaigning for the law, fundraising events, and setting up of voting precincts. Palawan’s division into three provinces — Palawan del Norte, Palawan Oriental, and Palawan del Sur — is contained in Republic Act No. 11259, which was signed into law in April 2019. The plebiscite for its ratification was originally scheduled May 11 this year but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Registered voters in the affected areas can vote for or against the law’s implementation. — Gillian M. Cortez
