MANILA, Jan. 15 — This morning, Justice Jose A. R. Melo tendered his resignation as Chairman of the Commission on Elections effective today, January 15, 2011.

We thank Justice Melo for his close to three years of service as Comelec Chairman. He leaves behind a distinguished record of public service, the highlight of which was the successful staging of the first fully automated national elections, widely acknowledged as the country's cleanest elections in recent history.

We wish Justice Melo and his family all the best. (PNA) scs/PCOO/rsm
