Former solon hits NPA ‘extortion’

Posted by akosistella on April 16, 2010


FORMER party-list representative Loretta Ann Rosales of Akbayan on Thursday slammed the Communist Party of the Philippines CPP and its armed wing, the New People’s Army, for the collection of permit-to-campaign PTC fees from candidates, calling the activity as “plain and simple extortion.”In a statement, Rosales said the CPP-NPA’s permit-to-campaign activities undermine the democratic process of the country’s electoral exercise.“They keep on criticizing our election process as undemocratic and violent, yet here they are doing the same things they profess to abhor and vowed to fight against,” the chairman emeritus of the Akbayan said.
