2nd disqualification case filed vs Arroyo son’s party-list bid
Posted by akosistella on March 30, 2010
A militant party-list group sought the disqualification of presidential son and Pampanga Rep. Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo from the 2010 elections, saying that he is not qualified to become the nominee of the Ang Galing Pinoy party-list group.
As President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s son, Mikey Arroyo clearly does not belong to a marginalized sector, Bayan Muna Party-list Rep. Neri Javier Colmenares said during a Tuesday press conference.
Ang Galing Pinoy, which claims to represent tricycle drivers and security personnel, is “not a legitimate and qualified party-list group” and has “no authority” to nominate Arroyo in the 2010 party-list race, Colmenares added.
