Public school teachers who have served as Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) in the city during the October 25 Barangay and SK Elections have started to receive their honorarium from the Commission on Election (Comelec) City Office yesterday.

The City Comelec Office started to release the payment of BEIs amounting to P2,000 to P2, 500 each to a BEI, depending whether there was also SK election in the school that they serve.

According to Atty. Al Sakandal, city election officer for District II, their office will resume today the payment of honoraria  to hundreds of teachers and other individuals who served as BEIs.

“Those BEIs who have not yet received their payment for serving as BEIs should come to our office to get their honorarium tomorrow,” Atty. Sakandal said.

Sakandal said the payment for the honoraria of the BEIs have been a little delayed due to some processing of the payments from the Comelec central office.

However, he assured that all teachers and other individuals who served as BEI will get their honorarium.

Meanwhile, the Comelec here has appealed to all candidates who run in the Barangay and SK elections to file their certificates of expenditures.

As of yesterday, only 25 percent of the candidates have complied with the mandatory filing of certificates of expenditures.

Sakandal said a candidate who failed to submit his certificate of registration with the Comelec shall be barred from running in any future barangay, local or national elections.
