“The first regular elections in the new 6th Legislative District of Cebu and the Lone Legislative District of Mandaue City shall be held in the next national and local elections which is in 2022,” the poll body said this in Resolution No. 10546 promulgated on July 3, 2019.

It was last April 5 when President Duterte approved Republic Act No. 11257, entitled, “An Act Separating the City of Mandaue from the Sixth Legislative District of the Province of Cebu, to constitute the Lone Legislative District of the City of Mandaue.”

Left with the 6th Legislative District of Cebu are the municipalities of Consolacion and Cordova.

In the same resolution, the Comelec said the incumbent Representative of the present 6th Legislative District of Cebu which includes Mandaue shall continue to represent the said district until the noon of June 30, 2022.

“There shall be District Representatives in the House of Representatives for the Sixth Legislative District of the Province of Cebu and the Lone Legislative District of the City of Mandaue,” read the resolution.
