Manila, Philippines, Oct 1, 2021 / 16:57 pm
Faith-based and civil society groups in the Philippines have launched a movement that aims to work for “clean, accurate, responsible and transparent” elections in the country next year.
The groups dubbed the movement “Honorable Elections 2022,” a coalition of more than 20 Church and civic groups that committed themselves to ensure “righteous elections.”
Among the group’s main activities is to campaign for voter registration, voters’ education, and monitoring of polling precincts during the elections.
“We need to share the burden of managing and administering the electoral exercise with the Commission on Elections,” said Bishop Jose Colin Bagaforo, in a report on the news site of the bishops’ conference.
