Comelec approves NP-NPC coalition
Posted by akosistella on April 8, 2010
The Comelec’s acknowledgment of the merging of the two parties is expected to pave the way for the declaration of the NP-NPC as the dominant minority party.
Comelec Commissioner Lucenito Tagle said the Commission had already signed a resolution recognizing the NP-NPC coalition.
“They were saying that the coalition is a sham but during our examination and careful evaluation they could not prove this allegation,” Tagle said.
The Liberal Party of Sen. Benigno Aquino III questioned the legality of the merger of NP and NPC, but failed to substantiate their claim that the union of the two parties was bogus.

3rd disqualification case filed vs Mikey
Yesterday, party-list group Akbayan filed the third petition before the Comelec legal department seeking to prevent President Arroyo’s eldest son and incumbent Pampanga congressman from participating in the May 2010 party-list elections.
In the complaint, Akbayan said that Arroyo’s party Ang Galing Pinoy failed to submit to the Comelec the required documentary evidence to prove that they truly belong to the marginalized sector.
“Considering that under the law, such documentary evidence must be submitted not later than March 29, then Ang Galing Pinoy is already in clear and flagrant breach of requirement,” Akbayan chair Loretta Ann Rosales said.
