Election Lawyer Speaks on DQ Petitions Filed Against Marcos Jr.

Election lawyer Rico Domingo calls for a speedy resolution of the disqualification cases filed against presumptive president Bongbong Marcos before the Supreme Court.

Last May 9, millions of Filipinos headed to the voting precincts and cast their votes for the local and national Elections 2022. It was an automated election and ten candidates vied for the presidency.

A few hours after most of the voting precincts closed during the election day, the partial and unofficial results were made available to the public. Former Senator Bongbong Marcos is leading the presidential election with a huge gap from the votes for other candidates.

The camp of Marcos Jr. has declared victory over the Elections 2022 after 98% of the votes have been canvassed. They also held a victory party at the luxurious Solaire Hotel.

Election Lawyer on Bongbong Marcos Cases

However, amid Marcos Jr.’s big lead in the presidential race, petitions seeking his disqualification from the presidential race crossed the surface. All the petitions filed against him before the Commission on Elections (Comelec) were junked by the poll body.

With the end of the term of the current administration drawing near, election lawyer Rico Domingo is calling for a speedy resolution of the DQ cases against former Sen. Bongbong Marcos. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the former immediate president of the Philippine Bar Association stressed that the high court must “must expedite the resolution of these petitions” to ease the anxiety of the people.

Domingo explained that speeding up the resolution can help settle the minds of the people if Marcos Jr. is really qualified to run for president. He tagged the case as “unprecedented” because the high court asked the respondents to comment while it was on break.

Citing the previous verdicts made by the Supreme Court on past cases, the election lawyer stressed that a popular vote cannot erase the irregularities in the qualifications of a candidate. He called for the court to give a resolution so the people are not in an uncertain phase.
