The Commission on Elections has scheduled the plebiscite on the law seeking to split Palawan into three provinces on March 13.

Republic Act 11259 seeks to establish Palawan del Norte, Palawan Oriental, and Palawan del Sur

“Itinakda na ng Commission on Elections (COMELEC) sa Marso 13, 2021 ang gagawing plebisito para sa pagtatatag ng tatlong probinsya ng Palawan na tatawaging Palawan del Norte, Palawan Oriental, at Palawan del Sur bilang pagsasakatuparan ng Batas Republika Blg 11259,” said the Capitol.

“Ito ay sa bisa ng Resolution No. 10687 na kung saan ay nakasaad ang Revised Rules and Regulations kaugnay nang isasagawang plebisito at Resolution No. 10682 na nakasaad naman ang Calendar of Activities para rito,” it added.
