The Supreme Court dismissed two petitions that challenged the qualifications of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to run in the May 2022 elections, and sought the cancellation of his certificate of candidacy while seeking to stop the canvass of votes in his favor.

Despite the rising number of Covid-19 cases, the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF), in its final act, kept Metro Manila and nearby areas under Alert Level 1 from July 1 to July 15, 2022.

Meanwhile, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) disclosed that a total of 617,806 qualified tricycle drivers will receive fuel cash subsidies under the “Pantawid Pasada” Program.

These are among the top stories this Tuesday afternoon, June 28, 2022.
