Smart Filipinos hoping Comelec disqualifies Bongbong Marcos as decision on cases nears

Marcos supporters are getting nervous as the Comelec’s decision nears, while others are hoping to see the dictator’s son out of the race

The Commission on Elections’ first division will decide on the disqualification cases against presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on or before Jan. 17.

Presiding officer Rowena Guanzon went to Twitter to announce, saying that the decision would be revealed in the session hall if possible.

Last Friday, the poll body’s first division held a preliminary conference on three disqualification cases against Marcos filed by the Akbayan party-list, a certain Abubakar Mangelen, and various martial law victims.

Mangelen, who claims to be the duly-elected chairman of the Partido Federal ng Pilipinas, alleged that Marcos’ nomination as his party’s presidential candidate was “unauthorized, defective, invalid and void.”

The two groups, meanwhile, in their petition, said the former senator is “perpetually ineligible” to run for public office due to failure of filing income tax returns and paying income taxes from 1982 to 1985.

According to Comelec rules, if the cases prevail, Marcos can be substituted by someone who shares his surname.

Marcos supporters are getting nervous as the Comelec’s decision nears, while others hope to see the dictator’s son out of the race.
