Cagayan election registrar decries treatment by Enrile



Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile

TUGUEGARAO CITY—The election officer of Santa Ana, Cagayan, on Sunday bewailed what she called the “unkind treatment” she received at the hands of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and his nephew, Jose Mari Ponce, on the last day for voter registration on Oct. 31.

In a telephone interview, Edna Tacazon, 61, said that Enrile, in her presence, called up Commission on Elections (Comelec) Chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. to have her removed from her post when she “was just doing her job.”

“Boy, I want this girl out of my district,” Tacazon quoted Enrile as telling Brillantes. “Boy” is Brillantes’ nickname.

Ponce, administrator of the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority, allegedly threatened to sue Tacazon for refusing his request to register two women at 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday—nearly six hours past the 3 p.m. registration cutoff time.

“He pointed at me and said he would sue me. I said I would welcome it because it is his right to do so,” Tacazon said.

Santa Ana government employees said that Enrile, who was on vacation at a family resort at Gotan beach in the town, arrived at the town hall at around 2 p.m. and was greeted by about 200 people awaiting enlistment.

Enrile, they said, proceeded to the Comelec office and confronted Tacazon about reports that she had refused to give out registration forms to would-be registrants.

“Senator Enrile dialed his phone and asked the person on the other line to transfer me, and then he handed me the phone. It turned out it was our chairman (Brillantes),” Tacazon said.

She said she explained to Brillantes that it was simply taking a long time to register all the people because of the last-day rush and they had only one computer.

She said that before Enrile left, he told her: “Ayusin mo buhay mo. Huwag kang mamumulitika (Get yourself right. Don’t play politics).”

In a phone interview, Enrile confirmed the confrontation, saying that barangay (village) officials had rushed to Gotan beach to report that Tacazon was refusing to give out registration forms.

Enrile said word reached him that Mayor (Darwin) Tobias suspected that those in line were going to vote for his opponent and allegedly ordered the registration forms not be distributed.

He said he learned that Tacazon had a son who would be running under the mayor’s ticket and an assistant whose husband was running for a local post in Santa Ana.

Ponce denied demanding that two women be registered that night.

“I went to the Comelec office to check on the outcome of the last day of registration on the instructions of the Senate President. On the way, I met these two young ladies who said they had been waiting since morning but still failed to register,” he said. Reports from Melvin Gascon, Inquirer Northern Luzon, and Cathy Yamsuan

    wag ka naman ganoon, MR. ENRILE…senates president ka pa naman, wala kang respeto at dinuduruan mo ang isang matandang babae, isang computer lang ang ginagamit nila dapat may power ka MR. ENRILE na mag-bigay pa ng mga computer ang government para mas mabilis ang registers ng mga cagayan voters…..sports ka lang, may the best man win…kung ang anak ng comelec employee son nito ay candidate din pagka-mayor sa bayan na yan , ay dapat alam yan ni COMELEC CHAIRMAN, NATUTULOG BA SI CHAIRMAN BRILLANTES…

    Why did the Author of this childrens book called the Chairman that late in the evening for? to ask what he was wearing? It’s always nice to meet young ladies at night …. and play Hero.

  • wawangpenoy

    Ugali na ni Enrile yan. At mas masahol pa ang anak na si Jackie. Puro power play. Noong manakaw ang van nya, una nyang binanatan and budget ng PNP. That shows the kind of a man Enrile is. Look at how he engaged Trillanes in argument. Dahil hindi nya magamit ang power nya, he hit below the belt by mentioning a subject that is not even part of the issue, and worse, compromise the national security. Hindi ko nga maintindihan bakit nanalo to eh. Kahit ika nga eh pasang-awa pasok pa din. Maybe, Enrile is the nation’s karma.

  • NoWorryBHappy

     “Boy, I want this girl out of my district,” Tacazon quoted Enrile as telling Brillantes. “Boy” is Brillantes’ nickname.
    Ulyanin na talaga si JPE. Akala niya presidente pa ang “brod’ niyang si Ferdinand Marcos.
    Parang diktador. Martial Law redux!
    She said that before Enrile left, he told her: “Ayusin mo buhay mo.
    Huwag kang mamumulitika (Get yourself right. Don’t play politics).”

    Bakit ano ba ang accomplishment ni JPE bilang buong buhay niya bilang Defense Minister ?
    The “weakest armed forces in asia” ang Armed Force of the Philippnes
    Buong buhay siya namulitika. Ibinabandera niya ang kapalpakan niya.
    May mukha pa siyang magsalita na huwag mamulitika ?
    “unkind treatment” she received at the hands of Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and his nephew, Jose Mari Ponce,

    It’s good that election registrar have the guts to raise the incident.. Now the country is again reminded of who these Enrile’s are. Also a big thanks for Enrile for further diminishing his son’s chance for a senate seat.

  • EdgarEdgar

    JPE has clearly mellowed down. Had this incident happened in the old days, that elderly comelec lady would have to beg for her life on bended knees. But then again, had this happened in the old days, JPE would have just rigged the election results outright without the need for voter registrations. How things have changed. And some never.

       Not only in the senate but to any position. The Enriles are remnants of the dark days in the Philippine history. Use our voting power to get rid of this garbage in the Philppine politics. Vote no to any candidate with surname  ENRILE just to be sure.

  • jeffrey_01

    Political Dynasties in a very nasty action.  Down with Enriles.

  • rocky92

    The cleansing of the Comelec should not only be at the national level but also down the line. I have heard of election officers engaging in partisan political activities, though not in an obvious manner, since way way back except that during the 2010 automated elections they can no longer operate on the same way. The registration of voters is another way to politicize the process both by the election officers and by aspiring politicians. I may not like Enrile but this time his use of his position to call the attention of the Comelec Chairman over the (mis)demeanor of the election officer may just be right.

    • leubas


    • pabulaka

      I don’t think an old woman would fight it out with JPE if she is into politicking. Those people have all the time in the world a year before and did they find the time to register? Why only now, the very last day? Early bird catches the early worm.

  • ceejay2420

    Difficult as it is to believe the 61 year old Tacazon is leaning towards some candidates, Enrile must not confront the election officer before the public and ask right there and then the Comelec chairman to have her removed from job. This only proves to show some kind of martial rule reigns in Cagayan province being administered by the “executioner” himself. 

    I strongly urge Ms. Tacazon to pursue the case against Enrile for obstructing in the performance of her constitutionally mandated duties. Enrile showed extreme arrogance in making others know he has immediate access to the Chairman and the power in asking him what he wanted done to whoever that does not go along his wishes. While he commands power as top elected official, I doubt if majority of Filipino people give him credibility and respect worth of a true person.


    NACHURAL lang yan….what are they in power for?  Reminds me of the French Revolution when the people got tired….very,very tired of the royal screw that they were getting from the noblemen. In our case, “honorable men?”.  Once a boyba, always a boyba, kahit na pag-suotin pa ng sutana.

  • captainramius

    A senate president doing this to a comelec registrar ?  Uncalled for ?  and these people they have one month to register but do so on the last day…. they deserve what happened to them ( baka mga flying voters pa ito )

    ENRILE…. time our voters wake up… stop political dynasty…. our situation was the same as 50 years ago 96 million Filipinos vs 30 or so families… not acceptable !!!

  • randyaltarejos

    Who’s telling the truth? And who’s telling a lie? All the Comelec can do is conduct a probe on the incident by asking witnesses themselves as to what transpired during the confrontation.

    • generalproblem

      si enrile ang nagsasabi ng tutuo na tinawagan nya si boy at pinapaalis nya yung tauhan ng comelec sa lugar nya.

  • vir_a

    This is plain arrogance and it’s outrageous. Pnoy should take action on this, if he is brave. If he did it to GMA and cohorts, he should do it to this guy who seem to have no respect for our institutions.

    Arrogant fool arse hole Enrile!!! mga hinayupak talaga kayo!!!

  • cogito728sum

    It is deeply regrettable that after his admirable steering of the impeachment trial of Corona for which he received a high degree of public approbation, Enrile can only reciprocate such public esteem by brazenly exhibiting what Sen. J. William Fulbright referred to as ‘the arrogance of power.’  Rather than be thankful that, despite his now publicly acknowledged role in the dark days of Martial Law, the Filipino people, expecially those of Cagayan, have given him another chance to wield enormous power, he turns around and not unlike the Marcoses, could only ingrately exhibit nothing but concempt to the same people.  There can be no better concrete proof to the adage that power indeed corrupts, and, if I may add, it also addles the mind.  Even of those endowed by nature of superior intelligence as Ferdinand and Juanito Purruganan.

    What frustrates the mind is why people of ignominious and lowly origin, from which both of these men of Martial Law fame arose, cannot handle their enormous power for the benefit of society that is the source of that power but solely for their personal and familial aggrandizement.  The question is:  Is this baseness in human character genetically programmed or merely the offshoot of family background?  If it is genetic the question that comes next is WILL THE PEOPLE CONTINUE TO REPOSE THEIR TRUST TO THE ENRILES AND MARCOSES in these coming elections?  Thank you folks!

    Enrile is a terrible example to the Filipinos.  The way he likes to get his way is either parang batang nagmama-maktol to get his way or parang siga sa kanto who intimidates people.
    I would think for a powerful, wealthy man who have lived a long, full life, Enrile should know better that civilized people do not resort to bullying especially to people on a lower level of economic class than him.  Did it ever occur to him to be nice and kind?  Or does he think that all government workers are his muchacha sa bahay?

    The Filipino people will never miss this man when he is gone.  If anything, the Filipinos will rejoice because we have one less abusive person who have no respect for people who have less privilege than him.

Pero sa totoo lang ang lahat ng kanilang yaman ay ninakaw galing sa mga tao at mga tao mismo ang nagsusuweldo sa mga putang ina na to na wala naman nagawang mabuti kundi tsupa lang ng uten at iyot. Enrile tsupain mo na ang uten ko!

    Stop political dynasties.

    This is what the people get for abetting, voting or selling their vote to political dynasties.

    Use your vote very very wisely.

    Don’t vote for same-family politicians, or else suffer the consequences
    that they’ll act like royalty, pointing at you and saying “Off with your head!”
    if ever you but slightly offend or displease them.

    It should really be “Off with their head!” at the polling booth station
    when you vote in next year’s election.

    Kung weak ang ating mga INSTITUTIONs (Comelec),   kung binu-bully-bully, ina-apak-apakan, ganun lang kung takut-takutin at patuloy ang pamamayagpag ng mga dambuhala at malalaking ANGKAN (Enrile political clan),  walang mangyayari sa isinusulong na REPORMA at PAGBABAGO sa ating bansa

    Balak ata ng mga ENRILE ang istilong AMPATUAN na paghahari sa probinsya,   hawakan sa leeg,  pinalalamon –  may allowances at gawing mga tuta ang mga Comelec officials sa mga munisipyo ng CAGAYAN.

    • edwin525

      Did you read the response from Sen. Enrile? If explanations from both sides were true then Enrile has a case. Something’s wrong when election officers have relatives running for election.. this a problem that comelec should act on.

      • Descarte

        Being a Senator, he should know the proper procedures.  File a formal complaint to Comelec that Brillantes can conduct a proper investigation and decide on the case through due process.

        Instead, on the spot, he instructed Comelec to remove the woman from her post despite her telling him that the slow computer were causing the delay.  Enrile could have checked the computer and if the woman was correct, his order to Comelec should have been ” Boy, I want 5 more computers in my district”. Better yet withdraw P100K from his P200M pork barrel and buy 5 more computers.

        After having the new computers and the woman still failed to accommodate the registrants then it’s another story…

    “I went to the Comelec office to check on the outcome of the last day of registration on the instructions of the Senate President.” – Ponce

    Tsk.tsk.. So Sen. Pres. Enrile is now also running the affairs of Comelec? People should beware of this family. No wonder his son is also a bully and even has the gall to also become a senator, perhaps to continue his father’s abuse of power.

    • junieva

      akala ni enrile kanya ang buong gobyerno….at kaya nyang diktahan lahat ng kawani ng gbyerno…..isang election registrar lang pala ang katapat nya……di lahat ng nasa gobyerno mr. enrile ay kaya mong takutin……maimpluwensya kang tao, pero tignan mo, isang babaeng empleyado lang pala ang katapat mo….matagal ka ng ganyan…..lahat ng nakakabangga mo o yung di mo kaalyado sa politika dyan sa cagayan eh sinisiraan mo at pina-papatay mo pa…..utak martial pa rin kasi pina-iiral mo……bakit di ka nalang mag-retire tutal matanda ka na at magdasal buong araw na mapatawad ka ni lord sa mga kasalanan nagawa mo sa sambayanang pilipino……wag ka ng makialam sa pagpapatak bo ng electrion registrar jan sa santa ana…pati ba naman yan eh gusto mo pang kontrolin? ano ka ba? ginoong sixto brilliantes, tuta ka ba ni senador enrile? sana wag mong panigan ang matandang senador na yan at malamang yung tauhan mo sa santa ana ay ginagampanan lang naman nya ang tungkulin nya…..

    Enrile is digging the grave of Jackie Enrile…
    Ed Angara of Sonny Angara, saying that taxpayers should pay for their campaigns..

  • ame mojica

     Based on what and who said who I believe the woman that she was just doing her job. Enrile was using his power to even call the comelec chairman and ask to fire the woman. Boy o boy what do you expect from somebody who is trying his best to change his past.

    • junieva

      baka akala ni enrile tuta nya lahat ang tao sa santa ana…..pati si brilliantes ba eh tuta rin nya? what a shame… ginawa nyang libro nya eh, sobrang galing nya ta napaka bait na tao…..hehehehe…kayo na humusga sa klase ng taong ito….gusto nya sya palagi ang nasa itaas…..di pwede yung ganyang senator enrile…..darating at darating din ang ending ng political career mo…kung di man kaya ng mga tao sa santa ana o ng buong masang pilipino, si lord ay andyan lang para patigilin ka na at sumosobra ka na……

  • abbaj

    Hurrayyyy! Mrs. Tacazon for standing up on Mr. Martial Law Administrator. Malapit ng matapos ang kahapayupan ng pamilyang yan. Kaya lang kapag nanalo si Binay tuloy ang paghahari-harian ng pamilya ni Juannito Furruganan. Kaya mga Cagayanons, pls wake up. Habang buhay na lang ba kayong kakayanin ng mga Enrile? Mayaman na ang mga duwapang na yan.

  • Ugly Bunny

    If yung reason mo tanda ay totoo, kasalanan din ng 2 babae yan bat last minute pa sila nagpaparegister. Junjun ka tlga tanda.

    • boldyak

      di ba sabi early in the morning pa sila nakapila, ano ba ang patakaran ng comelec?….siyasatin muna bago humusga….kung nakapila ka na wala pang deadline hindi ka na ba makaregister kahit inabot ka ng gabi sa pilahan?…kasalanan ba ng pumila pa simula umaga kung inabot sila ng deadline sa pilahan?..may rules dapat jan at ang rules ang sundin…hindi ko alam ang rules kaya di ko masabi kung sino tama o mali…haysss

      • jorgecapulejr

        So ano talaga yung nangyari boldyak? Alam mo ba yung tunay na nagyari?

      • Abdul Rashid

         Ang rule jan ay to stop at 1pm para maeprocess until 5pm. Nobody may be entertained after 5pm. Apat naman! In consideration to the comelec, they also need rest. Salamat na at natapus ang registration.
        Enrile has no right to bully these comelec people. Does he still believe he is powerful because he is the senate president or does he think nasa MARTIAL LAW pa tayo. Tama kana dyan tatang? Bistado  na and mga kasinungalingan mo.

    • duviz7533

    Kung gayon tama ang higing na emperador ng Cagayan si Enrile. Tama ang ginawa ng election registrar. Hindi dapat katakutan ang mga Enrile. Nasa takipsilim na ang kanilang pamamalagpag.  Mabuhay ka Ginang Edna Tacazon.

    Lagi na lang may happy sa kampanya ng mga Enrile. Kay Manong, ” Gusto ko happy ka”, kay Jack, “Gusto ko may pagkain ka”. Pero puro pangako naman. Tanda ko pa nuon, nung nangangampanya si Manong Johnny, sabi niya pag nanalo sya, ibababa niya ang singil sa kuryente. Pero nung manalo na, nakalimutan na ang pangako. Kaya tandaan nyo, mga botante, wag na kayong maniniwala sa pangako ng mga Enrile. Palagi na lang napapako. Gumising na tayo. 

    • Alejandro Canda

      nagtataka nga ako na ang pinaka malaking ASSO sa rehimeng Marcos ayhjanggang ngayon buhay pa. totoo talaga ang kasabihan na ang masamang damo ay matagal mamamatay. kung meron may pinaka marumi kamay na punong puno ng dugo sa panahon sa martial law ay wala nang iba kundi si enrile. sa libo libong pinipirmahan nya nga blank na asso (arrest search and seizure order) ay libo libo ring ang naging biktima kaya dapat bitayin ito si enrile.

         (Si Jalosjos sa Zamboanga kahit hindi puedeng magkandidato dahil commutation of sentence nga lang daw kaya nakalaya, talagang pinilit makapag file COC.) Eto namang si Manong Johnny, anim na oras nang tapos ang rehistro, pipilitin pang makarehistro mga bataan niya. Kumbaga sa pagkain expired na gusto pang lamonin.
         Talaga itong mga politiko oo, akala uso pa ang ganyan. Noong panahon na iilan lang ang nakapag aral, puede ang ganyan Manong Johnny. Pero ngayon burat mo lang Manong Johnny kung matatakot pa ang tao iyo.

Enrile’s martial law mentality still exist inside his body. KUNG SAGABAL KA SA AKIN, HINDI AKO HAPPY.

    COMELEC Union bewails Enrile’s bullying of a poll employee

  • comelec employees union

    PRESS RELEASENovember 5, 2012Ref: Gel Gerardino, Secretary-GeneralContact:
    COMELEC Union bewails Enrile’s bullying of a poll employee
    The rank and file employees union of the Commission on Elections today deplored Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile’s mistreatment of an Election Officer in Cagayan during the last day of voters’ registration on October 31, 2012.
    “The COMELEC Employees Union deplores the bullying done to Sta Ana Cagayan Election Officer Edna Tacazon by Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile and his nephew Jose Mari Ponce,” said Mac Ramirez, National President of the COMELEC-EU.
    Tacazon, 61, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer over the phone that she got a scolding from Enrile for just “doing her job.” She said Ponce, who is the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority Administrator, also threatened to sue her for refusing to register two women at 8:45PM, way past the 5:00PM COMELEC imposed deadline of voters’ registration.
    Tacazon added that Enrile even called COMELEC Chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. on the phone to demand to have the Election Officer fired from her post. Before leaving, Enrile allegedly told her: “Ayusin mo buhay mo. Huwag kang mamumulitika (Get yourself right. Don’t play politics).”
    “Tacazon doesn’t deserve such treatment; she’s just doing her job. We commend her for standing her ground,” said Ramirez.
    Meanwhile, according to Armando M. Mallorca, COMELEC-EU Vice-President for External Affairs, COMELEC employees nationwide were exposed to a lot of pressure and bullying from several quarters, especially from politicians and influential people at the last few days of the poll list up process.
    “We need to understand that aside from dealing with thousands of irate last minute registrants, COMELEC employees in the field had to deal with other bigheaded and influential people, among them angry politicians and local leaders who complained about us not having to accommodate all of their constituents, as if it was our fault; when in fact they had more than 16 months to visit us to register but they chose to come to us on the last minute,” said Mallorca.
    “So all of the harsh words and scolding that COMELEC employees got during the last few days of voter registration were just unfair. And we weren’t even paid for our overtime services for the month of October!” he added. ###

    • Descarte

      Kabilang po ba sa trabaho nila ang pag screen kung flying voter or hindi?  Mahirap po pag last minute registration dahil ipit na sa oras para i-check kung naka-register na ibang barangay or bayan.

      Totoo pong mahirap trabaho ng rank and file sa Comelec.  Tulungan po natin sila para sama-sama nating maayos ang ating halalan.

      • louie

        kelangan. ang taong hindi nagtatanong madalas naliligaw. both of them may have lied. mali talaga ang ginawa ni enrile pero sinong makakapagsabi na hindi rin nagsisinungaling yung comelec official. is it true that she have political connections? this is one reason why i’m asking. gets mo?

      • Descarte

        Pasintabi na po.  Senador po si G. Enrile at abogado at alam po nya ang due process ng investigation bago maghusga kung nagkamali nga ba ang isang tao o hindi.  Sabihin natin na dahil nga sa senador sya, di na sya dadaan sa formal procedure ng filing of complaint, mga paper works baga.  Mas maayos kung sinabi nya kay Brillantes, ” Boy paki-imbestigahan nga itong tao mo dito sa district ko”.  Pero sa halip, pinapatanggal nya kaagad agad.

        Si G. Enrile po ang nasa mas mataas at respetadong position.  Sa address na Senator Enrile, ang respect po ay nasa word na Senator at hindi sa word na Enrile.  Ang inasal po nya ay conduct unbecoming of a senator.  Una, hindi jurisdiction ang Comelec, pangalawa, babaeng nasa mas mababang position ang minaltrato nya, puede rin po syang makasuhan ng harassment.  Mas maganda sana kung ang parehong word na Senator at Enrile ay maging kagalang-galang, at dahil dyan earned yong address na Your Honor.
        Sana po nakatulong etong aking opinyon, pero opinyon ko rin lang po yan at yan ang palagay kong tama.

      • magiting78

        Kung isa syang responsableng tao at senador hnd dapat sya sumasaw sa usapan n iyon, kung alam nya ang due process dapat inad vice nya yung tao n s comelec pumunta at hnd s knya. And beside buong taon bukas ang comelec ng sabado at lingo para tumanggap ng registration bkit kung kailan last minute dun cla mag kukumahog.
        Hindi dpat kompronta ni Enrile yung tao s baba kc mga yan sumusunod lng sa utos. Cguro nman alam nya ang protocol s heirarcy…
        Dapat sa taong ito balat ng buhay at yung makunat nyang balat ay gawing leather belt pang latigo ki Jacky…lolz

      • louie

        well, sa haba ng comment mo hindi naman nasagot kung tama din ba ang comelec official. I’m not saying Enrile was right but definitely, the official should also explain her side. What i’m pointing out is that both sides might have erred (or maybe one is telling lies). In the end, a senator is a senator more are expected from them but it doesn’t lessen the dignity and professionalism expected from the comelec official. If she has no conflicting interest, as Enrile alleged, good for her. She stood up for what’s right even if it’s the Senate President complaining.

    Enrile is the worst trapo of all. His stint during the Marcos regime should have been more than enough for people to shun him. But voila ! we elected him as senator. Now he wants his son to follow his path. Bad karma for the people ! Bad bad karma !

  • Jake Lopez

    Mahilig kase ang Pinoy sa last day rush..di lang naman ang mga taga Cagayan ang di naka-pag rehistro gawa ng last day rush. Ngayon itong si enrile.. ano karapatan niya para makialam sa Comelec process. Darating sila ng last day, iisa computer, tapos kukuha ng padrino in the name of Enrile para pwersahin ang Comelec na irehistro ang na-late. Grabe talaga mga TRAPO sa atin kung umepal!!

    • mapicchu

    Lalabas na naman ang arrogance of this old politician. He wants to show that at any time and where ever you are, anybody in the Comelec can easily be called just by his finger tips.

  • PhoenixPoliticalParty

    Comelec Chair Brilliantes should come out with a statement, to explain what actually transpired and whether his office supports their officer on site.  He should also clarify whether there was impropriety on the part of the Senate President to intervene in the registration process, and harass an official in the performance of her duties.  Remaining silent would be bad for the morale of the Comelec staff.  Also,  the public must be assured that the Commission he heads is really politically impartial.   Other honorable senators must question the Senate President on the senate floor,  for him to explain to the august body,  the impropriety of his actions.

  • CeciliaT

    Ano ba yan gwabe ka namn Sen. juan Ponce enrili Don’t be like that.

    6 hours past the 3pm cut off time! at me ganang mamwersa itong young Enrile at seconded pa nitong matandang Enrile! KAKAHIYA KAYO! Kayo mismo di sumusunod sa regulations! Ke totoo o hindi na umaga pa nakapila yung 2, a deadline is a DEADLINE, kahit pinsan pa ng Presidente! Kung kelan last minute dun magreregister, ilang buwang walang ginagawa!

    Babantayan ng mga tao kung ano ang mangyayari dito sa Comelec staff na ito who was just doing her job. (Hwag kang matakot Ms Tacazon, suportado ka ng bayan, iwanan ka man ni Brillantes!)

  • Michel Eldiy

    Note that the Enrile camp did not deny calling Chairman Brillantes on the phone, after denying everything else that Tacazon claimed. “Hello, Boy?”

    • jeffrey_01

      Enrile can bully the 61 year old woman but maybe not Brillantes and the phone call is traceable.

      • boytz

        Methinks that what is important to learn from this incident too is whether “Boy” also allowed himself to be bullied by the jurassaic man or if he stood up by his employee, – because by his response shall his mettle be seen and judged too.

      • Michel Eldiy

        It’s not about bullying the Chairman. It’s about making that call and thinking that he (Enrile) can get away with it.

  • Lhester

    totoo po yon ako po dito sa paranaque napaka pangit at bolok na systema sa pagpa rehistro noong oct 29 nag punta po ako sa comelec paranaque 2pm, ang maka usap natin po ang security lamang ang taga opisina nasa loob lahat, sabi ng security kumuha ka ng form at fill up mop tapos balik ka bukas ng madaling araw kasi mahaba na ang pila kung tanghali na kayo pupunta, so ako naman kinabukasan bumalik ako 30 Oct 2012 at 3Am in the morning, so nag antay kami hangang 8am pag bukas ng office pero ang masamang pang yayari naka book na daw ang taong mag pa rehistro yesterday 250 to 400 person lang daw ang makaya sa computers, bakit nag sasabi sil na pumila kami ng madaling araw tapos ayaw nila tangapin, hindi pa sila kampante nag request pa sila ng swat team para guardyahan sila sa loob hindi sila nagpakita sa labas ang security lamang ang taong labas bolok na systima tulog tulog sa pansitan at may guwardya pa na swat. dat tangalin ang mga taong bulag sa tungkulan

    I won’t assume anything since di ko alam kung ano talaga ang nangyari.

      Sorry to tell you this but ikaw ang gunggong, bobo at ungas. Mula nang matapos ang huling halalan nung  May 2010 hanggang October 31, 2012 ay bukas ang Comelec para ikaw ay makapagparehistro. Kung hindi ka ba naman bugok at gunggong dapat nagparehistro ka noon pa. Sa huling araw ng registration saka ka pa lang magparehistro tapos magreklamo ka ng hindi ka makarehistro. Ikaw ang tutulog tulog sa pansitan. Ungas!

      you belong to a generation of turkak people. Comelec have posted a banner to register so you can vote. Punit punit na nga yung tarpaulin, gula gulanit na rin yung mga poster kasi 2 yrs na yung nakadikit, tapos ngaun nag kukumahug kau. You are a bunh of TURKAK

  • superlucky2

    Yang ang tunay na pag-katao ni Enrile, GREEDY. Nung nakaraak election ang battle cry ni Enrile – kuryente mo sagot – wala naman nangyari para bumaba ang price ng kuryente halos suno-sunod pa pag-taas ng electric bills. Ngayung yung anak man ang gusto maging senatong. VOTERS IF YOU VALUED YOUR FOR, PLEASE DON’T VOTE FOR THE SON OF ENRILE. May kasabihan nga like father, like son. IBAGSAK ANG MGA ENRILE.

    Do you think Enrile deserve to be remembered when he dies… I am an Ilokano and I don’t believe in this Trapo. He serves the government for many decades now and Cagayan Valley still like dinengdeng and pinakbet (btw these are delicious Ilokano viands of the poor people in Cagayan). When will the people of Cagayan experience economic prosperity. We know the fact that most of Enrile’s wealth came from politics especially during Martial Law. No to Enrile Dynasty in Cagayan and in the Philippines. Down with Trapos

    and so on… 

    People going to the COMELEC to register on the LAST day should not be the case. 

  • blainz

    Enrile has been bullying lesser folk for years. Stalling the confirmation of Robredo. maligning PLLO secretary Mamba over the sin tax lobby, denying the appointment of Augusto Lagman to the COMELEC.

    Only Trillanes has stood up to the bullying.

    Where is the propriety in calling Brilliantes over registering two ladies, when these people could have registered more than a year in advance?

    • catherine sien

       agree po ako.  sana po di na tinawagan si brilliantes.  para pong hindi maganda ang ganoon.  o, kaya, siguro po nag konsulta na lang po si sen. ponce enrile noong nakabalik na siya dito sa maynila hindi yung doon tatawagan na para bang nag uutos?  kaya lang po, baka naman din po may dahilan siya at di po natin alam.

  • magcalasL


  • RapeweedConsenth

    Investigate the Enriles for very ill-gotten wealth, for the illegal logging that was made all over the country when he was still the defense minister resulting in environmental disaster being felt up to this dat. And now, abuse of power. NO TO DYNASTIES. NO TO THE ENRILES. My worst fear is that they can buy the poor folks with their billion of pesos from questionable sources.

    • scconcern

      I am one for that; ill gotten wealth of Enrile should be questioned. He has beeeeen govement employee for life…if he does work outside, it will fall under conflict interest.
      Worst, to attain such wealth does not need logic, just common sense/instinct.
      The attitude shown by Enrile is that of plutocrats, better name to call dictator.

  • PutingAgila

    If Enrile is HONEST enough, as he wants people think he is, he should come out openly that he turned a blind eye on the ILLEGAL logging operations of the DY FAMILY in ISABELA when he was  Defense Secretary. Then Isabela Provincial Commander cringed in fear to stop DY’s ILLEGAL logging operations because the whole military establishment (Philippine Constabulary, Philippine Army  and Municipal Police Forces) knew the ENRILE-DY unholy alliance.

    • JK1000

      Nakita ko itong si Dy na dating Governor ng Isabela at naging Tongressman yata, sa wedding ng cousin ko noon. Mukha talaga siyang BUWAYA, ang wedding gift niya sa cousin ko ay isang truck na troso na may ribbon pa ang truck. Isang matalik na kaibigan niya ang owner ng company sa automated machine sa elections noon panahon ni GMA, isa din babaero yung owner ng mga machines para sa counting ng mga balota.

       Malalim ang pinagsamahan ni Enrile at Boy dahil kasabwat sila sa dayaan nuong 2010 elections.

  • ClarkInKuwait

    The Enriles are already thinking that they owned the North. And woe to any government employee who will not follow their wishes. They felt that the rules do not apply to them thinking that they are powerful people that people needs to kowtow.

    Are these the kind of people our citizens wants to elect this coming March 2013? Are the citizens willing to perpetuate this kind of behaviour? Take note that this will just worsen because the Enriles are planning to establish a dynasty in that region.

      Para po sa kaalaman nyo nag declare na po si Comelec Chairman Brilliantes na as of 5 pm ng October 31 ay close na ang registration for the March 2013 election. Hindi ko po alam kung sa buong Pilipinas ay ang lugar nyo ang nabigyan ng special extension.

  • cagayan

    kayo na nagcocoment wala kayo sa eksena ako andun din di nga talaga sila nagbibigay ng application form kung di dumating si manung johny at nagalit nakaregister pa kaya kami saka na lang sila nagbigay pag ka alis manung johny we have evidence of that kayo sa salita hay naku tahol ng tahol di alam ang background umayos din kayo

      Everywhere the comelec stopped issuing form at their predetermined deadline, Brillantes even told and explained to the registrants to wait for the decision of the SC for extension. Luckily for those people in Cagayan, there is someone higher than the Supreme Court. And you are right there to witness it.

    • Nilda Recolizado Serrette

      May nakalipas na po na 2 taon para sa rehistrasyon bakit po ba kayo nagpumilit sa huling araw? Bakit hini na lang kayo nagpagawa ng sarili nyong Comelec district office kay Manong Johny para hindi kayo mahirapan?

  • celso

    Tama si Sen. Trillanes, BULLY nga talaga itong matandang Enrile.

  • Beguine

    We can only conclude from this unfortunate incident that J P Enrile
    is no gentleman.

    We have in our culture ingrained respect for the fairer sex as the weaker
    sex, and deserving of gentle and kind treatment. The stronger male sex
    should show respect for the weaker sex during every encounter, every occasion.

    That is how the weaker sex can acknowledge and recognise that she should
    also look up to the stronger sex for guidance and protection.

    But in this particular case and incident, Enrile forgot everything not only
    about culture but simple good and pleasant manners. All because he
    became a martial law berdugo, and a berdugo he has remained
    ever since, and in all likelihood until his coming soon and unavoidable
    passing away.

  • Hatepoliticaldynasties

    The Point is Cagayan Voters had all the time to register early.  COMELEC published the deadline and stated there will be no extension.  It was irresponsible on the part of the potential voters to register in bulk on the last day.  COMELEC should only process applications until 3PM.  Any registrants in line should not be entertained after the 3PM cut off.  You mean to say if the whole voters of Cagayan decided to register on the last day, COMELEC should accommodate all of them?  That is BS.
    The Enrile Clan should get their acts together.  Sen. Enrile should not utilize his position and call the COMELEC Chairman.  That is absurd and very inappropriate.  He is doing the same thing that GMA did, calling Garci and asking on the results.  I totally agree with Sen. Trillanes that Enrile is a bully.  

    By the way, have you checked the attendance of Jackie Enrile in Congress?  Where do you think he ranks when it comes to the most number of absents?  Your guess is as good as mine.  Can you please tell us your own accomplishments in the Congress for the past 9 years?  What have you passed in Congress?  Your budget request? DUH….

      Naging mayaman at makapangyarihan dahil sa nakaw na pera sa bayan.  Pera nyo ibibigay sa yo kunwari galing sa kanyang sariling bulsa.

  • Nilda Recolizado Serrette

    sino kaya mga Village Officials na pumunta sa Gotan Beach na magsuplong kay JPEnrile, hhhmmm, must be political alliance. I wonder what his advice was ..go to the COMELEC committee in Sta. Ana, go seek help with the Mayor …. aaahhh….. no way… he personally mount his horse and flexed his muscles …. he abused his power …phoned “Boy, I want this girl out of my District”. Ms Tacazon better retain her job OR Pres Pinoy got to fire Brillantes and give JPEnrile an early retirement. Ms E Tacazon should be given an award for standing her ground and not give in to
    intimidation by powerful politicians, and upholding the dignity of this country.

    • opinyonlangpo

      She did not stand her ground, she was intimidated. Registration forms were issued after Enrile left.

      • Nilda Recolizado Serrette

        ibig mong sabihin nagpatuloy ang registration after the deadline? saan galing mga forms at sinio nagbigay? …. this would be an story by itself, If you are a witness stand up,  kung may panindigan ka.

      • opinyonlangpo

        There are allegedly eyewitnesses present from the commenters below, if you care to read their side of the story…and clarify it with them how the forms were distributed and were able to register after the good senator left. There are also other articles from different sources where in the people were thanking Enrile for the intervention. I just get my info from the news.

      • jeffrey_01

        in a separate article Brillantes ordered Tacazon to give in to Enrile.  Brillantes told her he’s a senate president.  Did Brillantes undestood the abuse of power?

      • opinyonlangpo

        Yeah, I think I read that same article. It is best to base opinions from three or four news articles on same subject so as not to look stupid.

      • John_Cruz

        Brillantes surrendered to the Devil!! Ms. Tacazon just following orders from her superior. She did not have the money to fight in court. In the end the powerful and the wealthy wins only in the Phillipines!

  • opinyonlangpo

    It is a hopeless case for Tacazon, even PNoy won’t dare touch Enrile. Right, Boy?

    tangnamu Enrile ka! Gurang na hambog pa rin !  smuggler ka ng mga kotse sa Cagayan ayup ka ! matitigok ka rin ugok na matanda ka…tangnamu!

  • AllaMo

    This is why it is difficult to cry wolf, when you are the wolf.

  • kayumanggui46

    elections and election officials are separate and independent from the senate..enrile had no business lectruing the elelction registrar…he should file a complaint not take the lwa into his own hands…akala ko rule of law…rule of enrile pala…yang senado dapat buwagin na…parliamentary na lang…

    • $14334231

      di mo ba alam kung sino ang hari ng cagayan?????…

  • kayumanggui46

    iyan si enrile pasimuno at nakinabang sa national dagdag-bawas, ngayong nagmamalinis..dapat magretire na yan at ang lahat ng enrile pati si jack enrile na killer ni alfie anid atbp…

  • chemist45

    Pinoys who just rush for enlistment at the last minute should not be allowed to register to teach them a lesson. I have 2 nephews who have not registered since they backed out after a seeing the long queue. Typical pinoys. Brillantes was right in castigating people who went to the comelec at last minute. Tama ka Ms. Tacazon. 

  • kalikasanipagtanggol

    Ayan! unti-unti na uli lumalabas ang kulay ng batas militar attitude!

  • linobog

    Johnny…. nandiyan ka naman…

  • rjimenez1226

    arestuhin na yang si enrile for intimidating poll officials!

  • jeffrey_01


  • Lapu Lapu

    How they choose comelec/election officers?

    We read a lot of complaints against them. Some of them act like God. Some accept bribes. Some seen dining with candidates in public.

    They treat friends and celebrities special while ignoring the hundreds lining up in the heat.

    In the above case she was refusing to give out forms. why? After Enrile’s intervention it came out.

    BTW I am not taking the side of anyone.

  • Jim De Garman

    that is the real attitude of JPE..all was written in his memior is 90% hoax.

  • Leo Calo

    Manong johnny huwag ka na kasing makilaalam dyan, utasan mo na lang yung anak mong si Jack para ayusin yung dapat ayusin…

  • dikoy321

    Enrile is WRONG and TOTALLY OUT OF PLACE here for trying to INTIMIDATE a Poll official doing her job and for calling Brillantes!

    Go to the Dogs, Johnny!

    Forward Philippines !!!


  • Jasmin

    unbecoming of a senate president!

  • eivra23

    I hold the SENATE PRESIDENT GUILTY as CHARGE! The old man is experiencing some sort of dementia.  

  • Dong Pogi

     kawawa naman ang ating bayan sa kamay ng mga gaya ni Enrile, dapat wag iboto ang kanyang anak.

  • pulis

    Yan and Pnoy Admin..Walang pagbabago kasi kinukopkop pa rin ang mga tarantado..Sorry pero habang ang mga power hungry na yan ang naka upo, dating gawi pa rin tayong mga Filipino..

  • Jesse_Bruce_Pinkman

    Puțang inang amoy lupa na Enrile ito oo. Bakit di ka na lang mamatay at nang sa gayon ay umunlad naman ang bayan na ito kahit papano?

    Sinangkutsang lintik naman talaga oo.

    At ang puțang inang pinakamalaki mo pang pagkakamali ay tinawag mong girl ang isang amoy-lupa na din. Hindi ba napaka offensive niyan? Anak ng pating naman talaga oo. Wala nang pinagbago ang bayan na ito. Puro bobo ang mga tao at walang prinsipyo. Bakit nananalo pa yang walang hiyang puțang inang Enrile na yan?

  • Julian Lennon

    I wonder if this incident is a whole new chapter in his upcoming FICTIONAL OTOTbiography.

  • ztefertilizerscam9

    parehas lang silang mag-ama mga kriminal..DON’T VOTE ENRILE’S NEXT ELECTION…

  • ztefertilizerscam9

    Enrile’s only son Jackie Enrile was a notorious killer who killed several people including Alfie Anido

  • ztefertilizerscam9

    Jackie himself admitted that he has a bad temper. That explains why in his youth and full of power, he and his bodyguards killed many innocent civilians including then matinee idol Alfie Anido. He left for the US to escape prosecution and from those who wronged. That was cowardice. He returned when things calmed down. Now, he even wants to be a Senator. Let’s check his citizenship status first. If he’s not a US citizen, he sure is a green card holder which makes him ineligible to run for public office unless he gives up his green card.

  • Fred

    Your word JPE as against a Comelec lady Tacazon.  Who’s credible???
    Maybe this event can be included in another book???  Hope the event will not be twisted
    before the final print.

  • bonsaiman

    Another show of arrogance ba ang tawag dyan? Sana wala na ang pangalan na yan after the 2013 election.

  • Ilihanboy

    Talking Polints:
    1. Brillantes is not afraid of Enrile. Enrile called him boy – lest he forgets.
    2. Enrile does not push people around. He shoves them too and will call you boy if he wants to.
    3. Enrile fears no one but cried shamelessly when he frantically sought Cardinal Sin’s help to
        protect him from Mr. Marcos and Fabian Ver.
    4. Enrile thinks he is a hero and a celebrated Marcos traitor.too.
    5. Enrile admitted in his memoirs that he and Marcos really like each other.
    6. Enrile is more intelligent than Marcos. 
    7. Having said that, I too will make my own memoirs even without sixto boy brillantes. 

  • Nelson

    Siga at walang hiya pa rin si Enrile up to now! Pero, may katapusan din ang lahat.

  • ml

    I can’t understand why he has to go to COMELEC. He is from the SENATE not from COMELEC. Don’t use your position to manipulate others. Employees were just doing their obligations and they just follow what was mandated. Do your OWN BUSINESS Mr. Enrile  

  • ml

    Mr. Senator, if you have forgotten, galing ka rin sa HIRAP. YUMAMAN ka lang, akala mo na kung sino ka. Kinain ka ng kapangyarihan at pera. Check your values kung meron pa baka kinain na rin 

  • lex

    Madali lang ang leksyon dyan! Wag iboto ang ENRILE next election! Para mawala ang yabang nila!

  • Marlon

    this is a classic example of the philippine traditional politician who do not respect the law they themselves promulgated. this is also the classic traditional politician who do not respect ordinary citizen’s right. ENRILE and SON is the very classic example.

    by the way, haven’t we filipinos remembered that ENRILE play a major role during martial law regime, that annihilate thousands of innocent filipinos for their own cause and interest?

    ummm, things need to ponder. dont we think, he needs to pay for it?

  • kiehm

    Sa scenariong ito, parang may power ang senate over the comelec ah.. Tsk tsk.. bakit may election pa..

  • brentcom

    deranged ENRILE!! get out from Cagayan!!! we do not need you

  • rjimenez1226

    Bakit walang aksyion ang Comelec dito?  Ikulong na yang si Enrile for intimidating election officials!

  • rjimenez1226

    Enrile  and his son are  criminals who should now be paying for their misdeeds. Gising, Philippines!
