Statement on the Alleged Missing Ballot Entry

/ voting, overseas voting

The Philippine Embassy in Wellington refers to the allegation circulating on social media that a voting ballot sent by the Embassy excluded the name of a particular Presidential Candidate.

Anyone who claims that they have received a ballot with an erasure/non-appearance of any of the entries is requested to return the entire ballot package to the Embassy so that we can verify the claim. The Embassy is coordinating with COMELEC accordingly.

The Philippine Embassy in Wellington is committed to upholding the integrity of the national elections as we stand by our oath as career civil servants to uphold the values of patriotism, integrity, professionalism, excellence and service.

Maraming salamat po.
