Sotto: Congress may pass law to postpone 2019 polls

Congress may just pass a law to postpone the 2019 elections, Senate President Vicente Tito Sotto III saidon Thursday. Initially, Sotto insisted that the only way to postpone the elections was to amend Article VI, Section 8 of the 1987 Constitution. The said provision specifically mandates the holding of elections on the second of May every three years. But Sotto later corrected himself after being told that there was a line in the provision, which reads: Unless otherwise provided by law.
