The special election in Cavite’s 7th Congressional District to fill the seat vacated by Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla will be held on February 25, 2023, the Commission on Elections announced Tuesday.

“Automated elections po ang gagamitin natin dito so kami po ay handang mag imprenta ng balota na automated. Gagamit po ng vote-counting machines dito po sa 7th District ng Cavite,” said Comelec spokesman Rex Laudiangco.
