MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) is not printing new voter’s identification cards, an official reiterated on Saturday.

James Jimenez, spokesman for the Comelec, made the statement amid inquiries from the public.

“The poll body suspended the printing and issuance of voter’s ID when discussions about the national ID system started in Congress,” Jimenez said.

He noted that thousands of voter’s IDs remain unclaimed at the Comelec’s local offices.

“Incidentally, voter’s ID is not required for voting,” Jimenez said.

He advised voters to claim their IDs with the local Comelec offices where they are registered.
