Bulay a 'timely addition' to Comelec: chairman

MANILA – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has welcomed the nomination of lawyer Rey Echavarria Bulay as one of its commissioners.

Comelec Chairman Sheriff Abas said Bulay, Manila's chief prosecutor, would assume the position of former Commissioner Luie Tito Guia.

“Atty. Bulay, who is currently the chief prosecutor of Manila and former commissioner of the Presidential Commission on Good Government, is a timely addition to the Comelec en banc especially now that we are in the midst of our preparations for the 2022 national and local elections,” he said in a statement Thursday.

"His vast experience in law enforcement and the pursuit of good governance will greatly contribute to the Commission’s thrust in the advancement of honest, orderly, peaceful, credible, and safe elections,” Abas added.

Bulay's term expires on Feb. 2, 2027.

Malacañang announced Thursday that President Rodrigo Duterte appointed Bulay as the new commissioner. The Palace has yet to release Bulay's appointment paper.

Bulay is a graduate of San Beda College of Law.

Aside from Abas, the Commission en banc is composed of Commissioners Rowena Guanzon, Socorro Inting, Marlon Casquejo, Antonio Kho Jr., and Aimee Ferolino. (PNA)
