SC pressed to stop
5th district polls


Election lawyer Romulo Macalintal yesterday filed an urgent motion before the Supreme Court reiterating his call for the issuance of a temporary restraining order to stop the Commission on Elections from further activities and disbursement of funds in connection with the special election in the fifth district of Negros Occidental on June 2.

Macalintal maintained that the holding of the special election on June 2 is beyond the period allowed by law.

“The TRO is also intended to warn all potential candidates in the special election that they run at their own risk with full knowledge of the pendency of my petition questioning the legality of the election and that their candidacies may be affected should the Supreme Court decide in favor of my petition,” he told the DAILY STAR.moremoremore
