MANILA, Philippines – Teachers appealed to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) for the immediate release of their honorarium.
The teacher volunteers manned the nationwide elections, from assisting the voters in their precincts down to securing the memory cards delivered to different Comelec branches nationwide.
The Chairman of Board of Election Inspectors and their members will receive P4,500 including the honorarium, allowance and five days of leave credits.
The Department of Education (DepEd) said they are just waiting for the actual attendance and duty list of the teachers who volunteered during the election day.
Once DepEd has received the list, the teachers will receive their honorarium after three days.
Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez also assured the teachers that “ginagawa natin lahat ng makakaya natin para maabot sa kanila ang kanilang karampatang honorarium.”
