Postponement of elections
Several proposals have been made to postpone the elections. Fourteen bills were proposed in the 15th Philippine Congress to postpone the election to a variety of dates. COMELEC Chairman Sixto Brillantes has proposed postponing the elections to 2014 or early 2015.  Postponement would require amending Republic Act No. 9340 by an act of Congress, signed by the president. Philippine president Ninoy Aquino is opposed to postponing the elections.
The candidates come from different parts of the country.
The election will be a manual election and not automated as the May 2013 national elections were.
