Commission on Elections (Comelec) Chairperson Saidamen Pangarungan and Commissioners Aimee Torrefranca-Neri and George Garcia are among the last appointees of President Duterte who will go through the so-called wringer at the Commission on Appointments (CA) before Congress adjourns sine die on June 3.

Pangararungan and Neri have some parties opposing their confirmation, while Garcia could have a smoother ride through the CA.

The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) bared its initial report on the May 9 general elections, and also provided data on how precincts voted.

Vice President-elect Sara Duterte stood in as the mother of a graduating student in San Carlos, Pangasinan, fulfilling the request of the youngster to be at her graduation because her overseas Filipino worker (OFW)-mother could not be with her in such a memorable occasion.

These are among the top stories this Saturday afternoon, May 28, 2022.

TOWED – Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) enforcers, led by traffic czar Col. Bong Nebrija, tows a shuttle bus illegally parked on NIA South Road in Quezon City on Saturday, May 28, 2022. The traffic enforcers had to mechanically unlock the steering wheel of the bus because the driver was nowhere to be found during the clearing operation. (Noel B. Pabalate)
