It cost “vice president-elect” Leni Robredo at least three times the amount of money to attract each Filipino to vote for her as it did Bongbong Marcos in this year’s elections. According to their respective Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCEs), Robredo’s campaign for the vice presidency of the Philippines cost her 418 million pesos while Marcos’s campaign, cost 140 million pesos.
Consider that (1) both candidates, if we are to believe the official results of the count, finished the race in a statistical tie and (2) allegations of cheating point to the possibility that Liberal Party candidates have cheated their rivals out of millions of potential votes. This means that the yield on financiers’ investment in Bongbong Marcos’s campaign was three times that of those who invested in Robredo.

In short, for a whopping 418 million pesos, Robredo’s investors got no more than a dubious “win” over Marcos and a raft of sticky cheating allegations that could bury the Vice Presidency in controversy over the next six years. Add to that the fact that President-Elect Rodrigo Duterte sees no use for nor offers any useful function to Robredo. Robredo is essentially a bomb of an investment. That’s 418 million pesos down the political tubes. The only people and businesses who actually benefited from that windfall of cash injected into the Philippine economy were media outlets who soaked up the ad revenue and voters who seemingly received “envelopes” in exchange for the small trouble of coming to a rally dressed in a yellow shirt.
Those are just some factoids that are nice to know — that the LP used a bulldozer to putt a golf ball into the hole.
(The above was a metaphor, by the way.)
But here’s where it gets really interesting. To top it off, Robredo’s running mate and Liberal Party presidential candidate Mar Roxas as well as the Liberal Party itself failed to meet the deadline imposed by the Commission on Election (COMELEC) on the submission of the SOCE. Section 14 of Republic Act 7166 stipulates that this is grounds for barring any winning candidates nominated by the LP from holding office…
Sec. 14. Statement of Contributions and Expenditures; Effect of Failure to File Statement. – Every candidate and treasurer of the political party shall, within thirty (30) days after the day of the election, file in duplicate with the offices of the Commission the full, true and itemized statement of all contributions and expenditures in connection with the election.
No person elected to any public offices shall enter upon the duties of his office until he has filed the statement of contributions and expenditures herein required.
The same prohibition shall apply if the political party which nominated the winning candidate fails to file the statement required herein within the period prescribed by this Act.
Roxas and the LP had, last Wednesday, the 8th of June, reportedly requested an extension of the deadline citing “voluminous number of receipts that have to be scanned and attached” as their excuse.
Section 2 of Rule 10 issued by the COMELEC applicable for these 2016 elections states that there is absolutely no provision to allow an extension of the 8th of June deadline for filing the SOCE for any reason whatsoever…
The 08 June 2016 deadline shall be final and non-extendible. Submissions beyond this period shall not be accepted. COMELEC Resolutions Nos. 9849 and 9873, Minute Resolutions Nos. 13-0775 and 13-0823 are hereby repealed, insofar as they allowed the belated submission, amendmentand/or correction of campaign finance disclosure statements and reports and the imposition of late penalties for the 2013 National and Local Elections.
Because of Roxas and the LP, it seems that Robredo is now deemed unqualified to be Vice President of the Philippines because:
(1) Roxas and the LP failed to meet a non-negotiable requirement;
(2) The deadline for this requirement is non-extendable; and,
(3) Any submission beyond this non-extendable deadline will not be accepted.
Thus the rule “No person elected to any public offices shall enter upon the duties of his office until he has filed the statement of contributions and expenditures herein required” makes it quite clear:
Leni Robredo is DISQUALIFIED from the Vice Presidency of the Philippines
Ain’t the law simple? Yes, really.

Good luck with the implementation. Who knows a Judicial TRO will be enforced or the law will be simply thrown out of the window and hope the people will forget.
Not only that. Remember when COMELEC imposed their house rules on the actual election date?
When some I-will-not-name celebrities breached this rules, they instead, twisted their own rules and suddenly, provisions that can salvage these celebrities popped out. So TRO is the last ditch scenario I am seeing as COMELEC themselves have a very bad habit of twisting their own ruling.
kaya nga joke sa social media, “wala daw shade” pero may arrow sa picture naka-shades ang dalawang celebrity. di lang iyon, maka-baller pa. yan ang batas sa no campaigning in the polling places. pero hanggan sa balota nandoon ang campaign slogan sa tapat ng pangalan mismo ng 2 kandidato, alyas daw nila yun. at pareho pa sila ng alyas ha. at tila ba kakambal na command sa pcos machine.
if the truth will prevail, this will teach all the investors and the cheaters to think twice before spending so much on malpractices … God bless the Philippines
I hope this is true. I am no Marcos fan but there was definely cheating and fraud in the elections.
You’re a marcos fan alright so don’t make it appear that even non-marcos fans believe his hallucinations about being cheated even though they have not submitted a single proof until now & marcos dummies like you readily swallowed his paranoid inanities.
Typical yellow moron rationalization of arguments that put their idols in a bad light. Your yellow cult is at an end. Deal with it.
The marcos cult died years ago brother, but dream on!!!
Your idol Aquino did our country the most dangerous country in the world because of drug issues and airport shameful issues
@arnie: Then what do you call his infrastructures that were still being used today idiot aquino follower?
Since your so-called “Marcos Cult” is gone, guess who’s raping your country now and compelling your countrymen to go overseas as OFWs, and whose remittance money they use to enrich themselves and turn your country into a feudal society?
It’s none other than your beloved Yellow Party and “Chekwa” businesses, that have completely monopolized the economy by destroying all the Fliptard-owned businesses, compelled your own countrymen to search for opportunities overseas as OFWs.
Those Fliptards who cannot afford to become OFWs are committing social injustices against each other just to survive and keep up with the growing cost of living.
How stupid and blind can you be?
You’re an Aquino fag alright so don’t make it appear that you’re not since Aquino apologists are only good at ad hominem attacks. Like your comments for example.
I’m a Marcos supporter.
And yes, you fucking rigged this election!
Robredo is a vile cheater, with no qualifications to be in office.
You yellow piss-heads have ruined this country, so shut the fuck up!
While you’re an aquino troll who is still desperate to attack us because your retarded pwesident is on the line for being jailed by duterte. And what proof do you want yellowturd? From what only your beloved yellow journalism feeds you?
don’t worry the Marcos camp WILL file a complaint and WILL present evidence. YES, there actually are evidences contrary to what you believe. only thing is ‘less your eyes are open you will not know that it is there.
I despise the yellow color!!! Aquino is a big fraud and not a hero at all. The truth why he was assassinated because of conspiracy theories… Stupid of the Aquinos. And for leni Robredo,, I’m glad that she’s out of the picture because no one can stand a two faced hypocrite, fraud and cheating bitch as vp of the country.
What planet are you from? No proof submitted? They’ve submitted truckful of physical, digital and testimonial evidences before all relevant judicial bodies. Either tanga ka, bayaran or retarded.
Kabayan yan ang sinasabi na KARMA PA MORE lakas ng karma naming mamayan dahil di lumabas boto namin ky bongbong…sana di kayo totigilan ng karma…god bless mga bong2
Im not fun of marcos. Actually i voted cayetano, but obviously they cheated the results of election.
just wait…the truth will prevail…and change is coming…marcos fan or not…
Both parties have nothing to fear of if nobody cheated….just for the benefit of the doubt ng mga Pilipino na bomoto..
don’t you have fb acct?it is widespread all over but it seems you’re the only one left behind!
Sanay na kasi ang LP sa cheating kaya parang normal na sa Yelloew fanatic.
posible’ng dinaya naman talaga si bongbong ng smartmatic (c/o technician marlon garcia)…:
si poe kasi nakakuha ng 9M votes, at si chiz ay mga 5M lang;
kung ako ay botante ni poe, siyempre si chiz ang preferred ko.
assuming, kalahati ng boto para sa VP ni poe ay napunta sa iba;
nasaan na ang 2M, o kahit 0.5M man lang na dapat ay kay chiz?
at magka-dikit naman sina chiz at si leni sa survey o polls ‘di ba? o.O
at ‘sana’, nag-protesta din si chiz sa kapwa ‘bicolano’ niya… toink!
smells like an initial part of ‘plan-b’… opinion ko lang poe naman ito. ^_^
I agree (Y)
i wonder how comelec will runaround this time.
and if mainstream media picks this up, i’ll have my popcorn ready. best guess is that they will hush this down and sensationalize another celebrity and/or tragedy.
But since Bautista is the head of comeleak is pro admin, I’m guessing they will give Roxas an extension.
we will see how comelec handles this….but i hope they do their work cuz duterte will be sworn as president nd they will be answerable if they dont do their job
I strogly agree, if Dut30 will keep his promises clean the dirt of the |Philippines
Wait, so if Roxas failed to submit his SOCE, Robredo gets the boot? Aren’t they mutually exclusive? Just curious, I don’t support either Leni or Bong Bong.
Not Roxas; rather, the entire slate of LP candidates get the boot when the LP itself wasn’t able to submit their entire party’s SOCE by the imposed deadline. Basically, if only the candidate wasn’t able to submit, he/she alone won’t be able to take office. If their political party was the one who failed to submit the entire party’s own SOCE, no one from that party gets to sit on their post, even if the candidates themselves managed to submit on time.
Too good to be true!!! :'(
I fully agree with you Mr. Deluxe Tea.
So what was Roxas doing all this time? What’s his lame excuse for not delivering on his responsibilities this time?
Korina looks so tame and humble there 🙂
Forget all the political correctness gratitude talk Mar’s saying in the video.
Mar’s real message to fellow LP’s: “Haha I was too busy sulking in defeat and enjoying my great escape from reality that I forgot all about you guys.
Well, I guess it makes it feel 1 degree C less hot in hell knowing I dragged all of you down here with me! Please let me have the last laugh.
I would love to see my fellow LP campers crying and writhing in pain beside me in this humongous irresponsible loss of epic stupefying proportions.”
More power Mar – as in, huling hirit mo na nga, sinama mo pa buong barko. You’ll definitely need more power swimming across the ocean in shark infested waters.
Tama ka dyan. Love it
SO…CAPT.MAR ROXAS OF YELLOW SUBMARINE HERE IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY….ABANDONED SHIP…SO SIMPLE RYT?
That’s why it’s called a DEADline. Nothing lives beyond that date.
Why do we even have to qualify such a word with “non-extendable”? Just call it SICKline if you’re not man enough to impose something and stick to it.
Happy to note karma is finding a way to catch up with the Yellow/LP camp. A government swiped clean of Yellow garbage is what this country needs.
totoo po sir ..I agree agree agree!
Hope that it will be imposed. This is a BIG CHALLENGE TO COMELEC BODY!!!!
Seems that luck and facts is all against LENI. She should consider it as graceful exit…
Yes, the law is very clear on this matter. Failing to meet a non-negotiable requirement and deadline, including the non-acceptance of any submission after the deadline is simply unacceptable.
If they violate this law again, they may be barred permanently from running for pubic office.
If the members of the LP, their management and staff, cannot process a Statement of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCEs), it becomes all the more understandable why they did very little during their administration.
LP’s message to all Filipinos: “As you already know, we are incompetent fools. We can’t even meet a simple deadline to submit receipts. Please give us another chance. We promise (pasagasa pa kami sa tren) that we will NEVER AGAIN let you (our bosses) down.”
COMELEC’s message to Filipinos: “Please forget about this…”
“I know we were hard on some candidates in the past, but this is Leni at stake. We know you can perfectly understand. LP is still shaving votes este expenses in their report. So it takes time you know – we don’t have a script for this one. Please, please, understand what we are about to do in extending the deadline for our boss (nope not you people). You all know who our boss is. Halatang obvious naman diba? Aren’t rules like promises made to be broken?”
If the ones who make the rules breaks them, then it makes even more sense why these institutions are simply jokes never to be trusted again.
And if Comelec does uphold its rules, there’s always Aquino-appointed Serano kangaroo Supreme Court to reverse the decision (as in Poe’s disqualification case).
katangahan at katarantaduhan garantisado at every level! Hey, time to get your daily dose of eat bulaga now. Open wide guys…
Yes, the way you do it in a rectal exam.
Mar Roxas and LP have not figure out a way yet to justify their use of government funds.
Hahaha….nadale mo …bka dinodoktor pa mga papeles….
LP even had enough time to organize thanksgiving party and victory party for Robredo but asking for extension for something that mandated.
that’s absolutely true!
There is simply no legitimacy in Failippine politics. NONE. So “Fuck” the Failippines, its government, and its people; and “Fuck” me to for being a Fliptard. I’m so “Fucked [not Proud] to Be a Fliptard.” Every Fliptard should be, too.
Teachers and Professors usually emphasize to students when it’s a HARD DEADLINE.
So this is Comelec’s idea of NON-EXTENDABLE…
What makes you think they won’t extend it to 3:45 hours, 12 hours, 2 days, or half a month? It’s a bad precedent guys. I think I know where this road leads to.
It’s like killing a baby in the womb. If the law says you can kill as long as it’s not beyond 3 months old, what if the baby is 2.99 months old? – the dividing line between [cold-blooded premeditated murder punishable by death] and NOT is just a couple of hours?
sos…yun na nga mga katoto…..nabali na nga nila ang rules nila….non-extendable……deadline….pero 5pm ginawang 6:30 pm…..di ko lng alam sa history kung nagawa na ito ng COMELEC na mag bigay ng grace period na 1 1/2 hrs…..or ngayon lng ito nangyari sa kasaysayan ng COMELEC at ng Pilipinas
You underestimate COMELEC’s incompetence.
“due date” rather than “deadline”
So who will be now our VP of the Philippines?
President Digong will appoint someone he likes for the post. I’m guessing Cayetano.
I don’t know if that is possible. I think the rule will be who is next in line based on the number of votes. Choosing based on personal standards may not sit well with the electorate.
Art VII, Sec. 9 of the 1987 Constitution provides:
“Section 9. Whenever there is a vacancy in the Office of the Vice-President during the term for which he was elected, the President shall nominate a Vice-President from among the Members of the Senate and the House of Representatives who shall assume office upon confirmation by a majority vote of all the Members of both Houses of the Congress, voting separately.”
This is the so-called “back door” of Cayetano.
In my opinion since non-compliance of SOCES as a Comelec policy is not complied by LP Leni Robredo will be disqualified for VP and since she is not yet sworn in office the next VP candidate will take her place. Art VII, Sec 9 of the 1987 Constitution applies only for vacancy (this means that the VP is already sworn in on the position) but in this case it is disqualification so other VP candidate can assume the position.
@jezreel, good point, but I’ll stick to this provision that I quoted. In election theory, in a multi-party election and the one with the most votes is disqualified, the second placer does not take his/her place. The logic is that the 2nd place isn’t the “choice” of the people and that those who voted for the winner may have voted for candidates other than the second-placer had the winner been disqualified from the start. To allow the second placer to occupy the post is as much a travesty if the democratic process as LP’s cheating. This is why the decision is left with the President in sec. 9 art vii.
Sec. 2 of Rule 10. Not so many people seem to know this. Comelec is not mentioning it, even Atty Macalintal seems to be unaware.
I don’t think so…of course they’re are pretty much aware of it, but just so afraid to admit it because it is a painful truth!!! In denial????
what was on Sec 2 of Rule 10 ricelander? can u please inform us whats on that..
YOu believe this SHIT!
Where is the disqualification term?
Barring is different from disqualification.
The end-result is the same. You just need to apply a bit of imagination to fully-appreciate the bleak future in store for “vice president” Leni Robredo.
if she can’t be disqualified then wala siyang gagawin as it’s stated:
No person elected to any public offices shall enter upon the duties of his office until he has filed the statement of contributions and expenditures herein required.
hence, the VP position will be an empty seat but Mrs. Robredo is not disqualified.
under the 1987 constitution, Executive Department.
SECTION 9. Whenever there is a vacancy in the Office of the Vice-President during the term for which he was elected, the President shall nominate a Vice-President from among the Members of the Senate and the House of Representatives who shall assume office upon confirmation by a majority vote of all the Members of both Houses of the Congress, voting separately.
Hence, since the seat is vacant, then Pres. DU30 can nominate one.
strictly enforce the rule of law. not following the law will make it an empty slogan.
not following the rule of law will prove our weak State/Nation.
2. Our Republic is still a “Soft State.”
Weak rule of law and governance because of the dominance and power of political families, warlords and rebel groups.
The incompetence of comelec also manifested with the erroneous substitution of PDP-Laban standard bearer and now president Duterte. After election they want to review the case juat because he won. For all we know thry allowed Digong to run to make sure MDS did not win and it happened. Now they wanted to try and disqualify him but they underestimated the support digong got just because they bent the law on that substitution. Backfired plan.
SHE ISN’T DISQUALIFIED. She’s just can’t start to work as VP until LP (NOT HER BECAUSE WOW SHE SUBMITTED HERS ON TIME) files the party’s SOCE.
It’s similar to pre-employment requirements. If you haven’t completed them, YOU CAN’T START TO WORK FOR THE COMPANY. Even more so if one of the requirements is a something from your previous company – you can’t start it yet if they haven’t given it yet, IF IT’S PART OF THE REQUIREMENTS.
Excited kayong mga BBM na makaupo siya – OH WAIT, HINDI SIYA MAGIGING VP KASI NGA DELAYED LANG UUPO SI LENI, SIYA PA RIN ANG VP.
The thing is there is a deadline. The question now is, should comelec accept late submissions? By law, the answer should be NO! Therefore how can Robredo start her term if the law now forbids LP from submitting their SOCE?
Pre-employment process is different since I’m free to submit my documents any time I want. Unless they specifically give me a deadline and say that after the deadline, they won’t accept my documents anymore. Therefore, I won’t ever be able to start.
According to LP, what’s important is they submit their SOCE before June 30. They’re confident COMELEC will give them the extension.
Err what? So what’s the point of the June 8 deadline?????????????? What’s the point of all the rules and policies that we put in place if we could just easily ignore them???
incompetency at it’s finest. they are really TraPos.
June 30 was the obsolete law:
However, this will nullify the June 30 argument:
In the end, Leni’s camp will surely file a TRO, and Supreme Court will have the final decision. Abangan! 🙂
that was Leni Robredo qouting from an OBSOLETE COMELEC RESOLUTION Comelec , Resolution #9991 SUPERSEDES/REPEAL PREVIOUS Resolutions, thus the deadline for submitting SOCE was June 8, 2016
June 8 is a deadline dapat kung di nkapagsubmit Disqualified na. Bkit me deadline pa kung me extension din naman.
You know what will happen?
The “assholes” is with reference to the COMELEC and anyone who let’s her get away with it!
Don’t discount the LP spin. COMELEC is owned by PNoy & LP.. Most probably the COMELEC will meet en banc and grant the request of Roxas-LP for a 14-day extension.
Haha, parang binalewala na si Robredo ng kapartido niya
Mar to Leni: why should I even have to go through all the troublesome hell of preparing and submitting the stupid requirement? what’s in it for me? Bahala ka na sa buhay mo.
Remember I am a Roxas and you are only a Robredo.
Robredo was referring to Comelec Resolution 9873 dated 15 May 2014 , which extended the deadline for SOCE filing of 2013 election candidates from 12 May 2014 to 30 June 30 2014. The problem is that Resolution 9873 is already obsolete. The new Comelec Resolution 9991 clearly repeals previous Comelec Resolution No. 9973.
*Resolution No. 9873, I mean.
Is it Party submission or Individual candidate?
This is an idiotic article if you ask me, Roxas has not submitted his SOCE, but Robredo did as you mentioned… now what is the problem with Robredo again? Her Party emembership? Where in the law that you cited that it has to do with Party?
And be more clear, otherwise, your credibility is crap!
Comelec Resolution No. 9991 Rule 10 Sec 2
Section 2. When and how to file the SOCE and its supporting documents. – Not later than thirty (30) days after the day of election, or by 08 June 2016, Wednesday, all candidates and parties who participated in the 09 May 2016 National and Local Elections, regardless of whether they won or lost, must file their Statements of Contributions and Expenditures (SOCEs) and the relevant Schedules and supporting documents. Filing of these campaign finance disclosure reports and statements must be done in person, whether by the candidates and/or party treasurers personally, or through their duly authorized representatives, before the offices listed in Section 3 of this Rules. Duly authorized representatives of candidates and parties must present a written authorization from their principals, using Form SPA-C in the case of candidates and Form SPA-P in the case of parties, before they can submit the campaign finance disclosure statements and reports of their principals. Submissions via registered mail, courier or messenger services shall not be accepted.
The 08 June 2016 deadline shall be final and non-extendible. Submissions beyond this period shall not be accepted. COMELEC Resolutions Nos. 9849 and 9873, Minute Resolutions Nos. 13-0775 and 13-0823 are hereby repealed, insofar as they allowed the belated submission, amendmentand/or correction of campaign finance disclosure statements and reports and the imposition of late penalties for the 2013 National and Local Elections.

To answer copper’s question, it’s actually Sec 5 of Rule 10 that applies to this specific situation.
if leni is disqualified, isn’t the senate president to become vice president???
Another , Hacienda Luisita Swine: Porky Drilon, who is a part of the conspirator of 2016 electoral fraud !
He can’t even serve as senator because of this SOCE thing.
Nope. President will nominate VP among the Senate. Section 9, basa:
I smell a “Political Zarzuela” from COMELEC Bautista; to distract our attention from his being a Conspirator of the Electoral Fraud. They should do a Full Recount of the votes. Proclaim the true winners of the election.
All those who participated in the Electoral Fraud, including , SMARTMATIC,Aquino, Mar Roxas, Leni Robredo, Porky Drilon, etc… must be prosecuted, fined and jailed.
COMELEC Bautista, should be fired, from his job. He is an Electoral Fraud Conspirator, and assisted in the election cheating !
The SOCE issue is just nonsense ! It stinks !
Well-said. I agree with you.
That is what would happen in any decently run country.
It is more like a constitutional crisis. Guess what happen next? PNoy could imposed martial law based on: a) decaying “peace and order”due to electoral cheating. b) to extend his presidency to avoid massive overdose amount of cases against him. c) extending the “Tuwid na Daan” Reich for a thousand years 😛
After 6 years of his incompetent and stupid leadership that even lead to the loss of our Sovereign Philippine Teritories, he will recieve the might of the Filipino People not only in their Oligarch controlled areas of NCR but as a whole Nation from Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao who would want his head on a platter if he pursues on declaring it. He doesn’t have the brain capacity unlike Pres.F.Marcos who made the country flourish even under Martial Law against abnoy aquino’s traitor father leading the terrosist group at that time.
Electoral fraud allegations, a looming prison term for PNoy, Abad and their ilk, and now this. Yellow brand pa more! Silent hypoc–este, majority pa more! Pakatanga pa more mga Pinoy!
Well well well, so KARMA really is eveywhere. It may come to u sooner or later.. I hope that this is not just a tactic or diversion of Comele to trick the Filipino people.
i think you have to consult a lawyer before writing/giving this opinion because you get it all wrong, i believe…. robredo can only be disqualified if she over-spent; not due to LP not being able to submit SOCE before the comelec’s deadline – this will only stall her functioning as vp…
Please do more research. Nahahanap na nga sa Google yung mga nakasaad sa batas eh. (Haaay common sense is not so common nowadays)
These people:Aquino, Leni Robredo, Mar Roxas, Porky Drilon, COMELEC Bautista, SMARTMATIC, their minions, chekwas, Yellowtards, etc…have no shame…they lei; they cheat; they are part of garbages of humanity !
….they lie; they cheat; they are part of garbage of humanity !…(corrected)
So we should call him “The late Mar Roxas” then?
Mar Roxas – the Poster Boy of Incompetence …
More appropriate ????
THE POINT HERE IS DEADLINE IS DEADLINE, COMELEC SHOULD STICK ON THAT. MATUTU NA TAYONG PINOY PAG DEADLINE DEADLINE WALA NG EXTENSION EXTENSION PA, NAKAKAHIYA KA DI KA MARUNONG SUMUNOD SA PATAKARAN. ABA EH MATALINO KA MAY MGA PANGALAN NA PINANGHAHAWAKAN VP KA PA MAN DIN, DI BA ROBREDO SABI MU PAG NAGPROCESS NG PAPER SA MUNICIPYO NINYU EH DAPAT AFTER 3 DAYS OR CERTAIN PERIOD TAPOS NA ANG PAGPROCESS, GAYA NG BUSINESS PERMIT ETC ETC, DI BA MAY DEADLINE KANG IPINAPATUPAD. EH KATULAD DIN YAN NG PAGPAFILE NG SOCES DEADLINE TALAGA,VICE PRESIDENT DENECLARE KA NA TAPOS DI KA MAKAGFILE AT CERTAIN DATE.DYAN PA LANG EH DUDA NA TALAGA ANG BUONG PILIPINAS SAYU O BAKA MAY ALINLANGAN KA LANG YOU DONT’T FILE AT THE DEADLINE DATE KASI MALALAMAN NA MAY ITINATAGO KA NA GINAMIT NYU SA ELECTION NA PERA NG MAMAYANG PILIPINO OR SHOULD I SAY GOV’T FUNDS.SO SHAME OF YOU!
How about Kris Aquino’s use of government Helicopters in campaigning for Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo, and for the LP candidates. Are these not issues , and violations of election laws? These are government properties, she used. The fuel cost is from our taxpayers’ money. The Helicopter Pilots are paid by our taxpayers’ money…Kris Aquino is not even a government official. She is just a sister of Aquino…
Karma’s a bitch. Leni dodged the bullet of BBM hy cheating. Yon lang sa sobrang incompetent ng LP hindi nila na anticipate na aabot sa ganitong punto ang mga bagay, na babalik sa kanila lahat ng kapalpakan nila.
Either LP sabotages their entire party incuding Leni. That they’re aware of the disqualifications. And does nothing about it.
Or they’re just cooking up something to escape this incident. Until such time that it will be forgotten.
Good thing Du30 was a lawyer himself. And it appears, things has been conspiring for him and for the best of the Philippines. While he is fully aware of this and surely is strategizing things, keeping count of the law suits he could file to ensure entire LP gets jailed, I think Digong is still more focused on improvements for the country than waste time on these LP fools.
LP’s eradication in the politcal roster is self-inflicted. What could be a greater, funnier karma than that. LOL.
PLAN B OF SATANAS GROUP FAIL…. GOD WATCHING US
hahah just make a scene and this disqulification thing will be fogotten. ilalabas nila yung scandal ni leila de lima para mawala na itong issue ng disqualification case. XD XD XD
PLAN B OF SATANAS GROUP FAIL>> GOD WATCHING US
if leni is declared vice president and get disqualified, the runner up in the vice presidential race mandates is void. it’s the senate president to become vice president. and if she’s not sworn in as vice president ‘cuz of disqualification, the runner up in the presidential race will be the vice president. it’s either bongbong and whoever should be the next senate president will take place of leni… maybe still drilon/koko pimentel. 100% sure the yellow armies will sworn in leni. anyway it’s not the real issue, it’s the hacienda luisita they’re fighting for.
Karma na yan sa mga LP. Wala man matibay na evidence si Marcos sa cheating. Pero Fod give the way already. If Bautista tolerate the extension request,it means bias siya at kasabwat siya sa election cheating.
How dreadful…to be caught up in a game and have no idea of the rules.
Hey you yellowtards i just wanna know is there any bridges, hospitals,any infrastacture ur idol cory or pinoy have accomplish isnt it that they just change the names of some projects of marcos to bennifit only themselves trying to cover up all the good things marcos has done 4 our country
All these smell vested interest to me: Kris Aquino turned out to be the biggest donor to Leni Robredo’s campaign funds. Noynoy even provides her privileged access to government resources (e.g. helicopters—taxpayers’ money!), as long as Kris could help keep her brother (& LP cohorts) out of jail.
The LP is desperate to put more of their own people on key positions inside to continue manipulating government & hide their indiscretions. I would not be surprised if the LP, with all its penchant for no-bounds dirty politics, would provide behind-the-scenes underground support for those drug lords and other criminals who placed a bounty on DU30’s head just to get Leni to grab that top spot.
Not easy for them to disclose all their sources when they may have something to hide. It’s also possible, Mar at this point could not care less, as he may feel he’s been royally epically screwed off his “entitlements” by the LP, multiple times already.
What about those who managed to follow the deadline?? These is just simple paperwork that needs organising but if these alone cant be followed what else can they not do in the future? If u r honest and clean it shouldnt be a problem? Why would they be given an extension while others are Able to submit on time???
If the most recent rule stating all late submission of soce will no longer be accepted as final superceding the provision “until” of the earlier rule and no question on its constitutionality the all LP winning candidates cannot assume their post until a supreme court decision favors them.
Wait a minute, so what happens to every Liberal Party candidate who won the election? So they are all disqualified?
Strictly speaking, I suppose so. However, implementation of such rule is the issue rather than the rule itself.
Wag mag papa uto mga kapatid..diversionary tactics Lang yan na late sila mag file Ng SOCE..they did that on purpose Para Hindi na bilangin ang mga tunay at mga ninakaw na boto Ng mga LP..sa huli papayagan parin maka file Ng SOCE ang LP..parang Laglag Naka as NAIA..the LP admin knows meron laglag bala pero Ng pumutok ang mamasapano massacre…pina lakas nila about 20 victims a week Para ma divert ang nangyari Sa Mamasapano..
How would you settle your disparities if it was your wife and yourself debating over this issue? Say the wife is Pro-Leni and you a Marcos fan? Call each other idiots?
Well, you can adopt a “NO talking about politics 30 minutes before making love at night” policy.
I can assure you Leni is not worth having your marriage fall apart for.
For Bongbong – well maybe somebody around here may be able to take a bullet for the guy (he’s not the champ of the solid north for nothing).
Absolutely the LP and Comelec will find a way out. However, this should stop by the incoming President. Start implementing the law and not to bend the law unless there is a loophole.
I fear that LP and it’s greedy oligarch members are gonna overthrow the “LAW” or even rewrite for their favor. Just look at the 1987 constiturion rewritten by the puppet housewife that favors oligarch’s vs the welfare of the people.
I don’t think she is disqualified… yet. There’s no final statement from COMELEC that they will no longer accept late SOCE, even if the rules are clear cut. Miracles happened, and will happen.
If they won’t accept it though, I imagine there would be major protests regarding Leni’s disqualification.
Oh Really? You don’t say. 😛
Akala ko ganyan na maglaro ng golf ang mga mayayaman ngayon hehehe.
I’ve lost my trust already to comelec, never forget the hello garzi issue, just like most of the media company and people, they’re there for money and business but not all. Comelec is one of the government institution just like some of the other government institutions which are truly corrupt. Thanks be to God for his mercy to the pilipino people that by our new president DUTERTE, we hope all this old and long tradition in the corruption in the government would be end. So let’s pray to God for our new president, to guide him for all his decisions and protect him and his family at all times to all evil.
Na Karma agad si lugaw…
The problem here for LP is YOLANDA can’t issue a receipt!!!!
THE TRUTH VP OFFICE IS NOT FOR HER BUT IF BOUTISTA THE COMELEC COMISSIONER ALOW THEN BAUTISTA AND ROBREDO MUST BE IN JAIL BY BREKING THE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMNT LAW. WOW ONLY IN THE PHIIPPINES
this article reeks of sourgraping! hard luck
Indeed it is simple but they always break it by making excuses when it is their favored party who is at fault. Phil. Election sux with the present commissioners grrr
Leni Robredo is a Violator. Her action of violations can be seen thru “One leads to Another” principle; from SOCE deadline, videos of her buying votes by giving out porridge with money to unconstitutional oath-taking before the president with unauthorized person. Shows that she will not support Curfew or Death Penalty; Curfew for children who wants to grow up as a family-oriented person and Death Penalty for repetitive murderers, rapist & druglords. She will turn the country back to an addict nation. She will be remained as a puppet since her resume doesn’t have the experiences & knowledge of leadership. Also, she is a psychiatric mentally-ill patient suffering in depression because she kept bringing up her dead husband whose been long gone dead since 2012. Take years to heal from Depression. And all psychiatric mentally-ill patients has to be treated first before they could help million lives out there.
