He told the members of the media that the Comelec is just waiting for a clear sign from Congress that it will pass a law postponing the political exercise.

He clarified that the alter-ego of the president said that President Rodrigo Duterte is in favor of the postponement because he does not want that the government projects will not be implemented due to the election ban on implementation of projects, Angara added.

Meanwhile, he confirmed that for his part being the chairman of the Senate committee on local government that he will come up with his report immediately.

The report will be out before August 31, he said.

As regards the house version of the proposal for the postponement of the election, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez has authored the bill which he considers as the clear marching order to the panel.

While the law is being deliberated in the plenary after the submission of the report, Angara said that he will initiate a joint resolution of both chambers to postpone the election.
