Posted by s511 in Elections 2007, electoral reform, party-list system and elections.

Is the government persecuting anti-GMA party-lists to ensure the
victory of its “front organizations?”

This was the question raised by Akbayan party-list today as it
revealed that several administration-backed groups, from Sigaw ng
Bayan members to those that have been initiated by government
officials, have been accredited by the Commission on Elections.
AKBAYAN Party-list appealed to the Commission on Elections to get its
act together and revisit its list of accredited party-list
organizations and parties that the poll body has allowed to run under
the list system in May’s elections.

Rather than arrest Satur, why not train your guns on Cuenca who continues to squat on farmers’ land? March 13, 2007

In behalf of Akbayan, I condemn in the strongest possible terms the continuing persecution and impending arrest of Bayan Muna Rep. Satur Ocampo.  The more than twenty year old charge of multiple murder against Satur committed at the time he was under military detention reflects the same disdain by the authorities for justice and the rule of law that met the arrest of Rep. Crispin Beltran on trumped up charges over a year ago.
