COMELEC urged to cancel Left-linked party-list groups' registration

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) was bombarded by protest from anti-communists groups, members from  League of Parents of the Philippines (LPP), Hands-off Our Children, and La Liga Independencia asking for the cancelation of the registration of party-list groups that are identified with the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People's Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF).

The three groups staged a rally in the COMELEC headquarters in Intramuros, Manila to support the petition filed by Angela Aguilar, a former CPP cadre and ACT member, before the poll body April last year.

The said petition urges the poll body to revoke the registration of party-list groups Makabayang Koalisyon ng Mamamayan, Bayan Muna, Anakpawis, Kabataan, Alliance of Concerned Teachers, Integrity, Equality, Leadership, and Action, General Assembly Binding Women for Reforms.

It also named former Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Neri Colmenares as an individual respondent.
The protesters believe that these party-list organizations are manipulating the House of Representatives to accumulate funds to sustain the armed movement. They also believe this will also help reduce if not halt the very active recruitment of the communists among the nation’s youth.

“Our (parents) call are not just hearsays, we have proofs. We have evidence that these members of Makabayan bloc are just using their positions, and the government funds to recruit our children to become members of the communist groups,” LPP chair Remy Rosadio said 

She also alleges the involvement of the Makabayan bloc to disappearances of the students who were said to be recruited by the communists and brought to the mountains.
“One of our members in LPP still grieve for her child currently cuddled by the Makabayan bloc,” she added.
She adds these organizations are mere fronts of the communists and they brainwash their recruits by instilling hatred into the minds of the students against the government, teaching them communist ideologies.
