CEBU, Philippines — The Commission on Elections is reshuffling all election officers in Cebu, including Cebu City election officials, starting next week to ensure clean and credible midterm elections come May 13.

Effective on Wednesday, March 27, Cebu City North District election officer Marchel Sarno will replace South District election officer Edwin Cadungog, who will assume as acting election officer of Mandaue City.

"Gi-reshuffle mi but March 27 pa kay naa paman ta'y ongoing training sa electoral board members. Lisud man kaayo nag-training pa ta, unya mo-transfer na ta (we were reshuffled but the effectivity is on March 27 because we still have an ongoing training of the electoral board members. It is difficult to transfer while we still have the training)," he said.
