[Statement] PAHRA maintains its position that the COC of Bongbong Marcos should be canceled

STATEMENT OF THE PHILIPPINE ALLIANCE OF HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCATES ON THE DISMISSAL OF THE PETITION TO CANCEL THE CERTIFICATE OF CANDIDACY OF BONGBONG MARCOS, JR.

The Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (PAHRA) has received the decision of the Second Division of the Commission on Elections regarding our petition to cancel the Certificate of Candidacy (COC) of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

PAHRA maintains its position that the COC of Bongbong Marcos should be canceled and that the case, with all its merits, should have been enough to put an end to his candidacy. It should be noted that the Second Division has recognized the misrepresentations made by Marcos Jr. in Item 11 and Box 22 of his COC. The petition that PAHRA and its member organizations filed is grounded on a clear revelation of a dishonest act by the late dictator’s son that impacts the electoral process and the welfare of all Filipinos. Dishonesty, deception, and cheating are central to and what characterize the personhoods and reign of the Marcoses, hence the significance of this case.

We, as petitioners, hope that our request for the Commission En Banc to reconsider the decision of the Second Division will be favorable to the interest of what is right and just and what will be beneficial to the Filipino people.
