BONGBONG’S WOES NOT OVER: Petitioners to take Comelec ruling on Marcos disqualification case to Supreme Court

The Campaign Against the Return of Marcoses and Martial Law will file a motion for reconsideration next week after the Commission on Elections (Comelec) First Division dismissed the disqualification case filed against former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

 The group represented by lawyer Howard Calleja is one of several petitioners seeking to disqualify the son of the late dictator president Ferdinand Marcos Sr. from running for president in the May 2022 election.
According to Calleja the group is ready to take their case all the way to the Supreme Court.

“If they would like to retain the ruling which they have to right to do, my only request is that they decide it as fast as they can so that we can bring the matter to SC,” Calleja said in a virtual briefing onFriday.

“Comelec can affirm their decision. That is their right, but please do it as speedy and as fast as you can,” Calleja also said.

In a resolution made public on Thursday, the Comelec First Division voted unanimously to dismiss the three consolidated disqualification petitions against Marcos, clearing him of the bulk of major legal challenges against his candidacy.
