Election Commissioner Rene Sarmiento has urged critics of the candidacies of Rep. Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo and Energy Secretary Angelo Reyes for party list to file cases with the Commission on Elections. “There are many nominees. And [for us to act] motu propio, honestly, we need information [and] assistance,” he said. He added that with 187 accredited party-list groups, each submitting at least five nominees, the poll body could not scrutinize all of the names, all at once.
