Two groups on Wednesday sought the disqualification of several party-list nominees for allegedly failing to belong to marginalized sectors they intend to represent in the House of Representatives.
Those requested to be disqualified were Sheryl Genuino-See, Johnny Tan, Lamberto Barbin of Batang Iwas Droga (BIDA); Teodorico Haresco and Eugenio Jose Lacson of Kasangga; and Eugenio Insigne of Agapay ng Indigenous Peoples Rights Alliance Party-list’s (A-IPRA).
The disqualification cases were filed by multi-sectoral poll watchdog Kontra Daya and Katribu Indigenous People’s Sectoral Party.
