COMELEC continues purge of partylists; 10 more disqualified
« on: November 15, 2012, 11:50:46 PM »
The Commission on Elections on Wednesday disqualified 10 more party-list groups from joining the 2013 midterm polls.

Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr said two of the disqualified partylists were existing while the eight others were new entrants.

The disqualified groups that took part in the 2010 elections are Action Brotherhood For Active Dreamers, Inc. and Abot Tanaw.

The eight new entrants that failed to get accreditation are Courage; Guardian; Hukbong Querubin; Ilaw; Samahang Ilocanong Magsasaka; Angat Ahon Magsasaka; Good; and Una Edukasyon.

Brillantes said the groups were disqualified since they did not represent the marginalized sector.

Meanwhile, the poll body approved the accreditation of Ang Nars Inc. which has five nominees.

Ang Nars, a new entrant, is the second allowed to join the 2013 polls. The poll body earlier approved the accreditation of Pilipinos with Disabilities (PWD).

Brillantes said the Supreme Court status quo ante order stopping the implementation of their resolution disqualifying eight party-list groups would not affect the commission en banc's ongoing purging of party-list groups.

"It will not deter us from continuing with the purging of unqualified party-list groups. We will continue to come out with decisions in the coming days," he said.

"Also, the SQA order has no immediate effect as the configuration of the PCOS machines and printing of ballots will not start until late this year," he said.

The poll chief said they would await the decision of the High Court on the merits of the petitions of the party-list groups.

The High Court also ordered the Comelec to comment on the matter within 10 days.

Brillantes said he hoped that the Supreme Court would come out with a ruling on the petitions before the end of the year since printing of ballots would begin by January 2013.

"We will also include in our comment a reminder of our timelines para malaman ng Supreme Court na nakikiusap kami sa kanila na kung pupwede i-resolve lahat ito... magkaron sila kung pwede ng sort of consolidation of all cases and come out with some specific rulings on individual party-lists para matapos lahat ito at the end of the year," he said. - PNA
