Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 25) — Malacañang dismissed the idea of postponing the 2022 polls because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement on Friday, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the Constitution is clear in requiring a national election every three years, done on the second Monday of May. The next general elections must be held on May 9, 2022, ahead of the end of President Rodrigo Duterte's six-year term by June 30 of that year.
