MANILA, Philippines—It’s all systems go for the May 10 elections, according to the Commission on Elections.

“We are 100 percent on target,” declared Comelec Chairman Jose Melo in an interview with reporters barely three weeks before the first nationwide automated elections May 10.

He said on Tuesday that the Comelec was within its schedule for the deliveries of ballots, the precinct count optical scan (PCOS) voting machines, ballot boxes, and other materials within this week.

Power supply for Mindanao during polls enough—energy chief

MANILA, Philippines—Mindanao can expect adequate power supply during the national elections in May, as the private sector and Department of Energy jointly have laid out concrete measures to avert possible power outages, Acting Energy Jose C. Ibazeta said on Tuesday.

Ibazeta said in a statement that these short-term measures, which included commitments from power generation companies and other concerned stakeholders on the island, were among those discussed during a meeting held on Monday.

The energy chief reported that Crystal Sugar Co. Inc. agreed to commission its biomass co-generation plant to supply as much as seven megawatts in additional capacity either to First Bukidnon Electric Cooperative, Inc. Fibeco or directly to the Mindanao grid, once operational issues have been resolved.
