The 22 roads include EDSA, C-5, Quezon Avenue, Marcos Highway, Commonwealth Avenue, España, E. Rodriguez, Ramon Magsaysay, Quirino Avenue, Aurora Boulevard, Ortigas Avenue, Shaw Boulevard, MIA Road, Domestic Road, Andrews Avenue, South Superhighway, Taft Avenue, Roxas Boulevard, Araneta Avenue, A.H.

Poll body Chairman Sixto Brillantes, Jr. said violators may be jailed for six years as it will be considered an election offense.
“Today, we promulgated Resolution no. 9666 disallowing the use of major thoroughfares within Manila for election campaigns, rallies,” Brillantes said on his Twitter account.
Candidates and parties are also required to notify the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority for motorcades along non-major thoroughfares three days before.
