article imageComelec Approves Estrada’s Plans to Run in 2010 Elections

By Maria Narissa Aranzanso     Jul 9, 2009 in Politics
The Commission on Elections (Comelec) cannot object to ex-president Joseph Estrada’s filing of certificate of candidacy (COC) in case he decides to run in the 2010 elections.
This was what Comelec Commissioner Rene Sarmiento declared, and explained that it is part of their responsibility to receive all submitted COCs of all candidates who desire to run in the coming elections.
Sarmiento added that it now depends on an individual or a group if they wanted to oppose the candidacy of anyone who submits a COC in the Comelec.
One of the basic grounds to disqualify a candidate is to prove that he is not a natural born citizen of the Philippines or to declare that he is a nuisance candidate.
It is recalled that some of Estrada’s detractors had stated that he cannot run for president anymore in the 2010 elections. Estrada insisted that he still can run for presidency because he did not finish his term when he was ousted from the position in 2001.
The ex-president implied that he will pursue his plans to run if the opposition fails to unite and find a standard bearer for the 2010 elections.
