All registered and coalition of political parties take note.
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) said all registered political parties and coalition of political parties are directed and required to file their Annual Sworn Information Update Statement (SIUS) with the Clerk of the Commission not later than August 15, 2022.
Comelec Acting Spokesperson John Rex Laudiangco said this is pursuant to the poll body's Resolution No. 10411 promulgated on July 31, 2018.
"Failure to comply with said requirement shall constitute prima facie evidence that the political party or coalition of political parties concerned already ceased to exist," he said in a statement.
Laudiangco added that it shall also be a cause for the cancellation of the party’s and coalition’s registration after due notice and hearing.
The SIUS is a requirement of the Comelec to every registered political parties containing the full name of the party, headquarters address, list of current officials, list of elected members, and list of members, among others.
