Cojuangco, Vargas battle anew for POC presidency

Both parties submitted their certificates of candidacy at the POC office inside the Philsports Complex in Pasig City where an election committee headed by Frank Elizalde will review their eligibility to run in the scheduled election on Friday. Cycling federation president and Tagaytay City representative Abraham ‘Bambol’ Tolentino and table tennis head Ting Ledesma also filed their COCs. The 82-year-old former Tarlac representative Cojuangco won his fourth term as president unopposed during the November 2016 POC election after Vargas was disqualified to run after allegedly failing to meet the qualifications of being active members of the POC general assembly. Tolentino, who ran as POC chairman during the poll two years ago, was also disqualified for the same reason.

An extraordinary POC general assembly was called Monday regarding the election with Vargas again fearing disqualification.   The election will be held 12:00 noon at Wack Wack Golf and Country Club......»»

There is no need to impeach Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno because she can easily be removed from office via a quo warranto proceeding for simply being unqualified.   This was the assertion of a suspended lawyer, who believes that Sereno is unlawfully holding public office for being unqualified to the position of Chief Justice.   Atty.
