The 2022 Philippine General Elections will take place on 9 May 2022 for the national and local government positions, both in the legislative and executive branches, with the exception of barangay officials. The national positions will involve the election for successors to the incumbent president Rodrigo Duterte and vice president, Leni Robredo. Election will also take place for other executive and legislative positions, such as in the congressional (Senate and House of Representatives), provincial (governors, vice mayor, board members), city and municipal levels (mayors, vice mayors, councillors). The election is supposed to include the 80 seats in the Bangsamoro Parliament of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), but it was rescheduled to 2025.

Presidential Election

The 2022 presidential election will be the 17th direct presidential election. Incumbent president Rodrigo Duterte is ineligible for re-election as he is limited to a single term, under the 1987 Philippine Constitution. A total of 97 aspirants have filed their certificate of candidacies (COCs), until the last day of filing on 8 October 2021, but some are likely to be eliminated as nuisance candidacies by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC). The candidate with the highest number of votes wins the presidency. If two or more candidates get the most votes for the position, the Congress shall vote among them which shall be the winner. The winner will serve a six-year term from 20 June 2022 until the same day six years later.
