Former Comelec Commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal stressed that the Comelec should not dismiss outright the petition made by Consla for the sake of transparency and truthful elections. Chong said he was baffled by the conflicting results of the tally of the PPCRV and the Comelec with regard to Consla considering that they used the same transparency server during the last elections.
Cases of this na- ture cannot be simply ignored or disregarded. Lente executive director, lawyer Rona Ann Caritos said it is the right of Consla to call for an investigation if it believes that it has sufficient evidence to prove vote manipulation in the recently concluded elections.
Caritos, said an explanation from the PPCRV and the Comelec on the supposed discrepancies would build public confidence not only on the process but also on the Comelec as a constitutional body. Why are these being withheld? Aside from asking the Comelec to conduct an investigation, Consla through its lawyer Rodolfo San Diego has also filed a letter-complaint with the PPCRV seeking an explanation for the discrepancy.

Makati City, February 12, The crosses and the coffins had been ready, and Mary Jane Veloso probably never imagined she would even see the sun rise again. Shortly before she was due to be shot by firing squad, however, the Indonesian government gave her a reprieve. She lives, for now. It cannot be denied that the surrender of Maria Kristina Sergio on Tuesday to the Nueva Ecija police had much to do with the reprieve.
It was because President Aquino spoke with the Indonesian president that the latter changed his mind, they claim. A sister of the President said she was proud of her brother. Lest we get lost in the jubilation, it would be good to remember a few things. The likely reason she was found guilty, however, was her inability to defend herself.
The Department of Foreign Affairs had no hand in providing her with a lawyer; her counsel was an Indonesian who was not conversant in English. Second, the conviction remains. And unless the Philippine government moves with the same urgency as it has in the past few days — only in the past few days — Veloso may find herself back in that island, saying her goodbyes again, and for real.
It would be doubly tragic if we lose Veloso anyway after this rare chance was given to her. Finally, there are numerous other Filipinos on death row in other countries.PiliPinas Debates 2016 Round 2
What happened this week reminds us that waiting until the last minute should never be an option. Veloso was lucky this week, but relying on luck is never enough. The Palace should now stop congratulating itself; it must face the more tedious work that lies ahead.
The truth, however, has a way of coming out eventually. Indonesia has a sizable migrant worker population, much like the Philippines. And Widodo is very much aware of the similarities between the case of Veloso and many Indonesians in similarly dire straits. THE nation is in celebration mode.
Who ever thought that one woman would have such a uniting effect on our people? Mary Jane Veloso, formerly part of the faceless and nameless Filipino diaspora, is now in the hearts and minds of every Filipino. And for good reason.

Santa Banana, Malaysians would not be doing all these for nothing! We must understand that government officials under Malaysian law are not prohibited from engaging in business. In fact, the Malaysian ruling party is one big Now why would a third party want to broker talks between another government and a rebel group? Malaysia is after joint ventures with the new Bangsamoro juridical entity in rubber and palm oil plantations.
Malaysia is also interested in mining and oil exploration. It all boils down to business. Vice President Jojo Binay, for one, will be the presidential candidate of the opposition under the United Nationalist Alliance.
Senator Panfilo Lacson is also thinking of running for President. But the ratings are not favorable to him. He may just end up as running mate of Binay. The transfer was requested by AmbALC Holding in a petition seeking declaratory relief from the Dagupan City government based on the charges that the sale of McAdore was illegal for not having been approved by the city council.
My gulay, would you believe that Fernandez obtained a court order for the return of the case to the Dagupan RTC? This is a clear case of forum shopping and a mockery and travesty of justice! Santa Banana, it also brings to fore the question: The High Court must do something to assert its supremacy.
It must be something personal. Mass media, after all, is now borderless. Juan Carlo Peregrina of the Congregation of Jesus and Mary in Quezon City, all wrote me their reactions, the gist of which can be grouped into three: With the many various television channels available to the public, I agree that censorship is longer the way to go.
One was an American and the other was Italian. Both were aid workers. It seems that in spite of the huge budget of the intelligence services of the US that is even bigger than the national budgets of many countries, it failed to ascertain that the two hostages were being kept in the same compound where an Al Qaeda leader was targeted for a drone strike last January. In his TV appearance, President Obama took responsibility and blame for the mistake and apologized on behalf of the American government for the deaths of the two hostages.
This is in contrast to the way our own President handled the Mamasapano encounter. President Aquino has put the blame on almost everyone except himself. Had the President done an Obama, he could have spared the country so much anguish and trauma which is affecting the Philippine National Police to this day. We now have an organization that is manned by many officers-in-charge. Unless the rules have changed since my retirement, an OIC cannot exercise all his prerogatives as commander.
He cannot, for instance, fully exercise his disciplinary powers; there are other limitations. Why this is allowed to continue is difficult to understand. One other negative effect of appointing OICs is what it does to the careers of officers scrambling to be promoted before retiring, when weeks or even a couple of months are vital.
If this situation continues, there will be many officers who will be unable to fulfil their long cherished ambitions to become Police Generals all because of politics or indecision. It would be so short because of his projected retirement on July. But this could not be the only reason because there have been short stints in the past because of the retirement system of the Police and the Military. The likelier reason is politics. Ever since I can remember, the PNP has always been viewed by politicians making a run for national positions as crucial to victory.
Part of the reason for this was that there were individuals or groups who would make their services available to politicians seeking national office in exchange for appointments to senior positions in the PNP should those politicians win. This could explain why not all those appointed as Chief of the PNP were or are necessarily the best of the lot. Closeness is an important consideration— as we saw in the case of Alan Purisima. But the idea that a politician can use the PNP as an institution to influence the outcome of a national election is a fallacy, unless the effort is brazenly open and blatant.
With the stakes of the presidential elections so high, it is understandable that the President and his political allies are timing the appointment of a permanent PNP Chief so that whoever will be appointed will still be there during the May elections. This is a pity.
