LP event in Marikina, a premature campaigning says election lawyer

LP event in Marikina
Atty. Glenn Chong who bravely defends the fight against Smartmatic and Commission on Election’s intended glitch issues on the previous 2016 election is now hitting the LP or what they call as Lapian “ng mga kadiring” Politiko- a label invented for Liberal Party.

According to Chong’s post, political personalities from LP have filed candidacy which made them as senatorial candidates for 2019. However, it strictly mandated in the law that the campaign shall start on February next year.

Marikina event

A program initiated by the Liberal Party was held today in Marikina. For Chong, it is clearly a move for an early campaign as candidates were presented and each was given a chance to speak on the event as if introducing their platform. The 8 senatorial aspirants to bring the opposition slate are Mar Roxas, Gary Alejano of Magdalo, Erin Tanada, Samira Gutoc-Tamawis, Jose Manuel Diokno who is a human rights lawyer, Bam Aquino, Romulo Macalintal, and Florin Hilbay.

Former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III attends the event as well.

Not an election offense 
Atty Glenn Chong
Though not an election offense, representative Chong says that James Jimenez of Comelec despise the early campaign of the said politicians, saying,

“Kadiri kayo.”

Netizens, on the other hand, despise such action from the Liberal Party. One even says that despite working hard for the campaign, the party candidates won’t win any Senate seat in any way. They were tagged as lawbreaker for not following the mandatory election period as stated in the law. And even called as “atat” and shameless for doing a premature campaign.

Netizen’s take on premature LP campaign

Netizens call out COMELEC to do something about the agenda and as well to prove that there is no exemption to the rules. LP’s event backfires at them as netizens claim superiority from their end in case something unacceptable is done but anything at fault seen on present administration, they gravely criticize the latter as if it does nothing good to people.

Nagfile na ang mga kandidato ng LP ng kanilang COC kaya maituturing na silang mga kandidato. Pero ang opisyal na simula ng kampanya ay sa Pebrero 2019 pa.

Ang ginawa ng LP ngayong araw sa Marikina ay maituturing na maagang pangangampanya. Kahit hindi na ito labag sa batas at hindi na rin election offense, ito ay "kadiri" pa rin ayon kay James Jimenez ng Comelec. I agree!

Hindi na talaga natatablan ng hiya ang mga kasapi ng Lapian "ng mga kadiring" Politiko (LP)!
