EB Magalona keeps the top spot, having the most number of SCOs issued by Comelec at 56, it added.
On Oct. 5, 40 SCOs were issued to EB Magalona candidates, and an additional 16 were issued as of Oct. 11.
Provincial Comelec supervisor Atty. Ian Lee Ananoria reported yesterday that the majority of complaints are related to premature campaigning.

All the SCOs issued have already been served, according to the Commission on Elections.*
