Kontra Daya welcomes the decision of the Commission on Elections First Division granting the petition to disqualify the nominees of Ang Kasangga Partylist Teodorico Haresco and Eugenio Jose Lacson.
The decision issued last July 7 correctly states that Haresco and Lacson
are not qualified to be part of the partylist system because one is a big businessman and the other is a three-term city mayor.
Lacson meanwhile is an established local politician with a definite constituency.
In the 2010 elections, known Arroyo allies Haresco and Lacson
also attempted to use Ang Kasangga
as a backdoor to Congress.
