COMELEC includes Nicanor Perlas in Presidential Race

More than a month after being disqualified, Nicanor Perlas is now an OFFICIAL CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT for the Philippine elections in May 2010.

Through Resolution 8743, the Comelec en banc announced that presidential aspirant Perlas and Liberal Party senatorial bet Lim have been included in the final list of candidates for the elections.

Perlas was earlier disqualified on the grounds that he cannot run a nationwide campaign and has no supporters to back him up. Supporters of Perlas launched a worldwide campaign entitled “Let Nick Run” and also had a rally on December 21 upon filling the petition.

On December 28, a hearing was made regarding the disqualified candidates and the COMELEC bow to resolve the issue during the first week of January but was delayed up to this week.

Partido ng Marangal na Sambayanan (PANGMASA) a new political party for new politics and a new Philippines which is inspired by Nicanor Perlas is also accepting members who will work together for this vision. Grace Calleja, PANGMASA Secretariat says that the party is open to all regardless of their gender, religion, social status, and other circumstances.

Nicanor Perlas’ entry in the presidential raise raises the number of candidates vying for the highest electoral post in May to nine.

Other presidential candidates includes Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III (Liberal Party), John Carlos “JC” Delos Reyes (Ang Kapatiran), Joseph M. Ejercito Estrada (Puwersa ng Masang Pilipino – UNO), Sen. Richard J. Gordon (Bagumbayan), Sen. Maria Ana Consuelo “Jamby” A.S. Madrigal (independent), Gilberto C. Teodoro Jr.(Lakas-Kampi-CMD), Eddie C. Villanueva (Bangon Pilipinas), and Sen. Manuel B. Villar Jr. (Nacionalista Party).

Gen. Danny Lim, meanwhile, adds to the list of 58 senatorial candidates for this year’s polls. He is currently detained at the PNP Custodial Center in Camp Crame facing rebellion charges before a civilian court and mutiny charges before a military tribunal.
