DFA inks overseas voting deals

THE DEPARTMENT of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has partnered with UBE Media, Inc. and UBE Express, Inc. to produce information materials for overseas voting for the 2025 national and local elections.

In a statement on Dec. 7, the DFA said two firms would work with the DFA Overseas Voting Secretariat (OVS) to promote media campaigns that will help overseas Filipinos vote on time and correctly.

“This is not just a renewal of the wonderful cooperation we have with UBE Media and UBE Express, but also we stand to reaffirm our commitment to promote every overseas Filipino’s right to vote,” DFA-OVS Chairperson and Undersecretary Jesus S. Domingo said during the partnership signing event Pasay City held on Nov. 21.

Under the deal, both firms will assist the DFA in the development of information materials and other avenues for informing Filipinos abroad about overseas voting.

Registration for overseas voting in the 2025 elections will end on Sept. 30 next year. — John Victor D. Ordoñez
