CBCP: Clergy may join revolt

Posted by akosistella on March 25, 2010

MANILA, Philippines – A ranking official of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said yesterday some members of the clergy are planning to join another popular revolt in the event of a failure of elections.

Caloocan Bishop Deogracias Iniguez, CBCP Public Affairs Committee chairman, said a failure of elections where no president is proclaimed would force people to take to the streets.

“This (event) is one of those instances when the people would need guidance (from us),” Iniguez said.

LP warns Comelec of serious repercussions in case of failure of elections

MANILA, Philippines – Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III and running mate Sen. Manuel “Mar” Roxas II yesterday said the Commission on Elections (Comelec) failed to install safeguards to ensure the credibility of the coming elections.

In a letter sent to Comelec Chairman Jose Melo, Aquino and Roxas raised concerns regarding the Comelec’s refusal of their request to review the source code of the precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines.

The LP candidates also said it was “unfair” of the Comelec to come up with a ballot design favoring Nacionalista Party standard-bearer Sen. Manuel Villar and for “unreasonably” disqualifying a number of their local candidates.
