Posted by akosistella on March 26, 2010

MANILA, Philippines – Bayan Muna party-list Reps. Liza Maza and Satur Ocampo filed a petition at the Commission on Elections seeking the disqualification of Pampanga Rep. Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo as nominee of Ang Galing Pinoy (AGP) because he is a member of the First Family and not qualified as representative of a marginalized sector.

In a seven-page petition, Maza and Ocampo asked the Comelec to reject the young Arroyo’s nomination to become a sectoral representative and fulfill its duty of ensuring that only members of marginalized and underrepresented groups could become party-list nominees.
