Malacañang expects Michael Braganza Peloton to perform his task as commissioner of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) with “professionalism and integrity.”
Peloton was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as new Comelec commissioner, replacing Luie Tito Guia who retired from the poll body last February. His term will expire on February 2027.
“The Palace confirms the nomination of Mr. Michael Braganza Peloton as Commissioner of the Comelec,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement Monday.
“We are confident that Mr. Peloton would serve the Commission with professionalism and integrity in the conduct of clean, credible, free, honest, orderly, and modernized elections,” added Roque.
The secretary also congratulated and wished Peloton “all the best” in his new assignment.
Peloton will join commissioners Ma. Rowena Guanzon, Socorro Inting, Marlon Casquejo, and Antonio Kho Jr. in the Comelec after the approval of his appointment by the Commission on Appointments.
