    Extensions of such nature may no longer be embodied in the omnibus election code. So, it may not be valid to do so unless approved by legislators, if im not mistaken.

    It was a PNP directive(extension). Those granted with comelec exemptions expire until July 1.

    Could it be for those areas where election failed and another date was set? Do you have the news article to post for all to see?
