Atleast 2000 Pesos Additional Honoraria to be received by poll workers with defective VCMs

The additional honoraria to be received by poll workers in precincts that had defective and malfunctioning vote-counting machines (VCMs) and secure digital (SD) cards will not be lower than P2,000, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said Sunday.

Atleast 2000 Pesos Additional Honoraria to be received by poll workers with defective VCMs

Comelec acting spokesperson John Rex Laudiangco said that the proposed additional honoraria for the affected poll workers is pending approval in the en banc.

The final amount, however, is still subject to the availability of funds, said Laudiangco.

“This is not overtime pay as overtime pay is not allowed and hindi rin po ito across the board. Not for all electoral boards, dun lang sa affected ng VCM issues at inabutan sila ng delay on account of that,” Laudiangco said in a press briefing.

“Basing in 2019, I believe the figure then was P2,000… There’s no decision yet as to the 2022 elections,” he added.
