Di Pa Nga Nadedesisyunan Ang Rule 65, Special Election Agad?

Dear COMELEC,

Ganoon po ba kadali ang pagkaroon ng special election?

Hindi po ba kailangan munang madesisyunan muna base sa Rule 65 kung saan klaro na talo si BBM?

 

 

To quote Atty. Emil Marañon:

With all due respect, holding a “special” election is not as simple as this. There are many considerations, not just a matter of willingness on Comelec’s part. Administrative questions have to be settled.

Who will finance the elections? Is it Bongbong Marcos? If it is the government, should there be prior appropriation from Congress? Can Comelec spend its own savings for it? Is there a line item for special elections arising from an election protest that would facilitate a realignment?

One actual and recurring example is the strange case of recall elections, which is also necessary and Comelec is able to hold, but can’t due to the above-stated budgetary constraints.

In other words, the question of special election remains a very remote possibility, existing as of yet in the realm of academic discussions. Marcos has yet to hurdle Rule 65, and his protest is still facing dismissal given PET’s recent confirmation of his failure to show any recovery.

This discussion is better reserved when that day comes. In fact, as of now, Comelec should rather defend and stand by the 2016 Automated Election System—which it designed, procured and implemented—which is now being assailed by Bongbong Marcos in his PET election protest.”

Di ba hindi naman ganoon kadali yun? Unless may alam kayo na hindi namin alam ha.

For the meantime, manigas ka BBM!

 

Patuloy Na Magmamatyag,

PAB
