Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) chapters nationwide have been permitted to hold online voting for their respective officers, IBP President Domingo Egon Cayosa said.
“The online voting option will address the mobility limitations during the COVID-19,” read Cayosa’s memorandum to the IBP chapters.
“Chapters are hereby directed to adopt the COVID 19 cautionary protocols for physical voting, take all necessary measures to ensure the widest possible participation of our members and safeguard the integrity of the votes as well as the election process,” he also instructed.
The IBP chapters are set to hold their election on Feb. 27, 2020.
The elected chapter presidents and officers will hold a two-year term.
