Commission on Elections Chairman Jose Melo has filed his resignation effective early next year, a spokesman confirmed.

Comelec spokesman James Jimenez said Melo sent President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III a letter signifying his intent to leave his post by January 31, 2011.

“He [Melo] said he has fulfilled his mission already,” Jimenez told Yahoo! Southeast Asia in an interview.

Jimenez said Melo’s “mission” was to ensure that the 2010 elections will go “without a hitch.”

“We’re not really surprised with his decision. He’s been very vocal of his intention of leaving,” said Jimenez.

He noted several Commissioners are also set to retire on February 2011.
