Comelec division throws out last disqualification case against Bongbong Marcos

A division of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) has dropped the last disqualification case against former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

The last case aining to stop the son of the late dictator president Ferdinand Marcos Sr., from running for president in the 2022 elections, was dismissed by the Comelec First Division.

The Commissioners of the division — Socorro Inting, Aimee Ferolino, and Aimee Torrefranca-Neri — unanimously voted to dismiss the petition filed by Ilocano nga Pudno.

Bongbong is running in tandem with Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte as vice president under the UniTeam banner.

The dismisaal of the last disqualification case follows the fate of three other petitions to stop Marcos from running for president:

  • Lihaylihay vs Marcos (petition to declare nuisance) – junked by the Comelec Second Division
  • Buenafe et al vs Marcos (petition to cancel certificate of candidacy) – junked by the Second Division
  • Ilagan et al vs Marcos, Akbayan et al vs Marcos, Mangelen vs Marcos (consolidated disqualification petition) – junked by the First Division

The latest ruling, however, does not end the troubles that hounded Bongbong’s presidential bid.

After Comelec en banc affirms the division rulings, the petitioners can still go to the Supreme Court, to question the rulings.Read More

Petitioner vs. Marcos wants disqualifcation case resolved fast

Akbayan urges Comelec to rule on MR

The issue should be resolved as “this could rob many Filipinos of the ability to choose from a genuinely qualified list of candidates

 A petitioner in one of the disqualification cases filed against presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Monday urged the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to immediately decide on its pending motion for reconsideration (MR).

In a letter submitted to the Comelec, the Akbayan party-list said it is only proper for the poll body to issue its ruling since “this decision is not just about one candidate.”

“It lies at the heart of what it means to have an election, and thus determine the future of our nation,” read the letter signed by Akbayan Party-list nominees Percival Cendaña and Raymond John Naguit.

With only 49 days left before the May 9 elections, the group said the issue should be resolved as “this could rob many Filipinos of the ability to choose from a genuinely qualified list of candidates, and completely contaminate and debase their votes.” Read More
