Progressive partylist hits hard on poseur nominee

Progressive partylist hits hard on poseur nominee
in round 1 of the Macapagal-Arroyo disqualification case

At the first hearing of the disqualification cases filed with the Comelec, Bayan Muna Partylist Rep. Neri Colmenares said they will be delivering the punches to disqualify Rep. Mikey Arroyo and his Ang Galing Pinoy partylist. Arroyo is expected to come face to face with the petitioners, including Makabayan senatorial candidates Satur Ocampo and Liza Maza during the hearing.

"The Arroyos fielding bogus partylists with their relatives and allies as nominees reveal a grand plot to entrench themselves in Congress. If they are not stopped early on, they will pursue Charter change to stay in power, evade accountability, or keep undermining the next administration. Mikey Arroyo as a partylist nominee is simply outrageous and violates the very essence of the partylist system. We'll knock them out, eventually," explained Colmenares.

"Arroyo is a certified 100% poseur in pretending to represent security guards. Too bad he didn't heed our advice, just make a graceful exit and back out from the partylist that copied our organizational documents. The public is now sure Mikey's a chip off the old block, a bogus partylist nominee to aide his mother's sinister plots for Congress," remarked Colmenares.

"We will spare no punches in the Comelec hearings. We just hope Arroyo himself will show up and not hide behind his lawyers," concluded Colmenares. ###
