SCHEDULE: 2022 president, VP candidates’ proclamation rallies
(1st UPDATE) The official campaign period for national positions in the 2022 Philippine elections begins on Tuesday, February 8

MANILA, Philippines (1st UPDATE) – The official campaign period for those seeking national positions in the high-stakes 2022 Philippine elections will start on Tuesday, February 8, with most – not all – tandems choosing to hold proclamation rallies in their home towns or known bailiwicks.

While the Commission on Elections designated this day as the start of the campaign period, many aspirants for national posts have engaged in early campaigning since 2021. The campaign period is when aspirants become candidates, and when rules guarding against offenses and spending caps take effect. Their promotional activities before February 8 were not subject to Comelec rules.

The campaigns this year will be drastically different from what Filipinos have been used to, given that the country is still battling the COVID-19 pandemic. The rules for 2022 campaigns are in Comelec Resolution No. 10730.

Campaigning will be prohibited on April 14 and 15 (Maundy Thursday and Good Friday), as well as the eve of election day, and election day itself – May 8 and 9.

Here are the schedules for the proclamation rallies of five presidential and vice presidential tandems. Their senatorial bets are expected to join them.

We have yet to receive advisories or find any information on the rest of the 10 presidential and nine vice presidential bets. We will update this page as more information comes in.
