The Filipino Community in Palau (TFCP) had created the Commission on Elections (Comelec) for the first time to supervise and ensure the smooth conduct of the elections of its officials.

The TFCP’s Comelec, which is made up of five Commissioners who are all volunteers, was created just last January 15.

Although the specific functions of the commissioners were not defined yet, the Comelec are planning to systematize their functions in the long run, according to Commissioner Marie Jane Belleza Salvador during an interview on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the TFCP is also set to have its elections at the Mindszenty High School gym on Sunday. Three polling precincts are already prepared for it.

The elections will begin at 8 a.m. and will run until 3:30 p.m. on the same day. (Rhealyn C. Pojas)
