Netizens calls out COMELEC to cancel reg’n of Partylist groups aligned with CPP-NPA




The Philippine News Agency in its website reported that in its Facebook account, a number of netizens expressed their support and before the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to cancel the registration of party-list groups identified with the Communist Party of the Philippines - New People's Army (CPP-NPA).



Main reason for this is that this partlist groups are creating more unnecessary issues instead of helping the government better address the nation’s problems.


Makabayan is a bloc of leftist groups in the House of Representatives. Its prominent members include party-list groups Bayan Muna, Gabriela, Kabataan, Anakpawis, Migrante, and Alliance of Concerned Teachers. Davao Mayor Sara Duterte previously called out voters not to vote for any partylist ialigned with the Makabayan bloc because they only pursue their leftist interests and fights the government (photo credit to owner)





We are quoting in full the comments given by some netizens that gave their respective comments on this issue, below:

Netizen Ysay Baroro commented that NPA-linked party-list groups "have no right to hold a position in the government because all they bring are troubles".
Meanwhile, Antonio del Castillo Jr., in his comment, said Comelec must have done the registration cancellation of such party-list groups a long time ago.
"Madaming dahilan 'yan kung bakit hindi maaksyunan noon ng Comelec. Takot sila sa pagbabanta o nakikinabang sila o may kaibigan sila sa mga partylist na 'yan. Dapat nga hindi na ulit pinapatakbo yung mga panay rally, gaya ng Gabriela, Anakbayan, (There are many reasons why the Comelec is unable to act on the issue. They're scared of threats, or they benefit from it, or they have friends from those partylists. Those who perform rallies shouldn't be allowed to run again like the Gabriela, Anakbayan,) etc.," he added.


Rebecca Labadnoy said NPA-related party-list groups help bring down the country's growth.
"Panahon na para di na sila makagulo sa gobyerno, paano uunlad ang bansa kung palagi na lang rally nang rally na wala namang naitutulong sa katahimikan ng bansa (It's now time that the don't interfere with the government, rallying doesn't help in achieving nationwide peace and development), she said.
On the other hand, Max Lebrando commented that there are more government agencies which help citizens in need.
"I think partylist is a waste of people’s tax and most of these partylists in position moslty are against the government. Paano tayo uunlad kung lahat ng projects eh may nasasabi kayo. Puro pa kayo rally, hindi ba pwede gawan ng (How are we going to progress if you criticize every [government] project. All you do is to stage rallies, can't you make a) solution rather than just make noise and mess on the streets? And you're a nuisance to traffic flow)," he added.

Based on Personal knowledge


Angela Aguilar, Secretary General of Kababaihang Maralita, a non-government organization, filed a petition before the Comelec against Makabayang Koalisyon ng Mamamayan (MAKABAYAN), Bayan Muna, Anakpawis, Kabataan, Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT), General Assembly Binding Women for Reforms, Integrity, Equality, Leadership, and Action (GABRIELA), with senatorial aspirant Neri Colmenares as the lone individual respondent.


Aguilar, in her petition docekted as SPP 19-006, said that "she has personal knowledge that MAKABAYAN party-list groups and Colmenares are connected with the NPA, being a former CPP “kadre" and ACT member."
She cited the Comelec's motu propio powers under the Republic Act 7941 or Party-List System Act’s Section 6, Paragraphs 2 and 5 as reference.
The Party-list System Act, which was passed in 1995, allows the Comelec to cancel the registration of any group, which among others, "advocates violence or unlawful means to seek its goal" and "violates or fails to comply with laws, rules or regulations relating to elections."
