The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is expected to start releasing the honorarium for poll workers starting today.

Comelec Zamboanga City District 1 Election Officer Atty. Stephen Roy Cañete said that more than 4,000 DBP cash cards have already been prepared by their office.

The Chairman of the Board of Election Inspectors (BEI) will receive an honorarium of P6,000 and travel allowance of P1,000 while the members and poll clerks will receive   P5,000 honorarium and P1,000 travel allowance.

These workers served during the recently concluded Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections last May 14.

According to the election officer, they have 15 days to pay these workers.

Cañete said that payment will be made by schedule so that not all will go to the Comelec office at the same time. The honorarium will also be given personally. (RGAAGo)
