SC orders Comelec to count Ladlad in 2010 polls

O kitam? There is a God of divine justice who sees all, but just waits. Let us hope and pray the SC reverses the insane Comelec decision calling us immoral and not lettng us become the number-one party list in the 2010 polls.


SC orders Comelec to count Ladlad in 2010 polls

MANILA, Philippines—The Supreme Court ordered the Commission on Elections (Comelec) Tuesday to recognize the gay group Ang Ladlad as an accredited party-list group and to include its name when the poll body starts printing the ballots for the May elections.

The directive was contained in a temporary restraining order issued by the court against a Comelec resolution disqualifying Ang Ladlad from the party-list elections in May.

Deputy Court Administrator Jose Midas Marquez, in a late afternoon news conference, told reporters that Ang Ladlad’s appeal of its disqualification by the Comelec remains pending with the Supreme Court.

He said the Supreme Court is aware of the time within which the Comelec should print the names of eligible candidates and party-list groups in the ballots for the precinct count optical scan system.

“If later on the Court finds that Ang Ladlad should be qualified, it might be difficult, if not impossible to include them in the ballots,” Marquez said.
