Published January 18, 2022 3:23pm A group of rights advocates on Tuesday appealed for reconsideration after the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Second Division junked the petition seeking to cancel the certificate of candidacy (COC) of presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. for the May 2022 polls. In a statement, the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA) underscored that Marcos' COC should be cancelled, adding that the Second Division has recognized misrepresentations made by the presidential aspirant. “PAHRA maintains its position that the COC of Bongbong Marcos should be cancelled and that the case, with all its merits, should have been enough to put an end to his candidacy. It should be noted that the Second Division has recognized the misrepresentations made by Marcos Jr. in Item 11 and Box 22 of his COC,” the group said. “We, as petitioners, hope that our request for the Commission En Banc to reconsider the decision of the Second Division will be favorable to the interest of what is right and just and what will be beneficial to the Filipino people,” it added. GMA News Online has sought reaction from Marcos' camp but they yet to respond as of posting time. But in an interview Monday following the release of the decision of the Comelec Second Division, lawyer Vic Rodriguez, Marcos' spokesperson, said they would respect any legal remedies that the petitioners will pursue. “As to what our rivals will be doing next, I don’t engage, as I have stated many many times, into speculation. If they want to exhaust all legal remedies available to them it is within their right and we have always been respectful of the rights,” Rodriguez said. The Comelec Second Division on Monday junked the petition to cancel the candidacy of Marcos in the 2022 elections due to lack of merit. In a resolution, the division said the petition “merits summary dismissal” as Section 17 of the Omnibus Election Code provides that cancellation of COC may be filed “exclusively on the ground that any material representation contained therein as required under Section 74 hereof is false.” The petitioners argued that Marcos' tax conviction in the 1990s disqualifies him from running for public office. But the Comelec division said before it can ascertain that Marcos’ representations in Items number 11 and 22 of his COC are false, there is a need to thoroughly examine the true import and actual effect of the decision of the Court of Appeals (CA). — Richa Noriega/KBK, GMA News
