Comelec no right to disqualify militants without complaints, explains official

Nabunturan, Compostela Valley (5 January) -- The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) cannot just disqualify any militant organization which bids for party-list representation without formal complaints filed by concerned parties.

In the yearend Kapihan sa Compostela Valley at the Provincial Capitol, provincial election officer Atty. Gay Enumerables explained that it would not be right for Comelec to deny party-list registration to any group associated with militant movement.

"Granting there is intelligence report, there has to be somebody to object to their registration as party-lists," Atty. Enumerables said referring to military reports that militant organizations were taking advantage of the party-list system to "legitimize" their moves against the government.

Joining the recently-held "Strength in Convergence" forum among information officers and media practitioners, 1Lt. Harold Ho, civil military officer of 1001st Brigade, revealed names of militant organizations identified as legal fronts of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army (CPP-NPA).

He said choosing such party-lists would turn out just a waste of votes for they would only bring harm to the government.

On the other hand, Compostela Valley Provincial Governor Arturo Uy in the same occasion admitted that his province still ranks in number of guerilla fronts but he said Compostela Valley "remains relatively peaceful". (PIAXI/JMDA) [top]
