MANILA, Philippines—Bayan Muna Representative Teodoro “Teddy” Casiño said Monday the present leadership of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is doing the right thing in cleaning up the party-list system.

In an interview on “Banner Story” program on Radyo Inquirer 990 AM early Monday, he explained how as early as 2001, Bayan Muna has already filed petitions to disqualify some accredited groups they viewed as abusing the party-list system.

He said though they were able to disqualify a few “bogus” groups, the Comelec officials in 2004, 2007 and 2010 had been very lenient in accrediting more applicants.

“Banner Story” is the newest daily morning show of Radyo Inquirer 990 AM. It is hosted by veteran journalists Arlynn dela Cruz and Jake Maderazo.

       ”Does not represent marginalized sector”

      Paano mo naman nalaman ito? Ipa-audit mo kaya ang financial statement ng Bayan Muna para malaman mo at puntahan yung mga pinagkagastusan…..gumawa ka ng parallel investigation at pumili ka sa mga trapo na congressman o senador at ikumpara kung may ginagawa nga ba si Teddy at Bayan Muna at ang pipiliin mo congressman o senador sa pera ina-allocate sa kanila…….

  • bugoybanggers

    Malakas yata si TEDDY BEAR sa INQUIRER, parating nalalathala sa balita ang patutsada niya. Okay naman na sana malinis na ang CONGRESO o ang kabuohang GOBIERNO ng PILIPINAS. Para bagang papatayin ng RUBBING ALCOHOL ang mga merkubyo ng BAYAN.. Larga ako diyan.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Paolo-Hernandez/100001326302694 Paolo Hernandez

      pareng bugoy, hindi po malakas si TEDDY BEAR s inquirer, MALAKI LANG SIGURO ANG BINABAYAD…..alam mo naman ang MEDIA FOR SALE. Kaya dapat di ipasa ang FOI kasi gawing gatasan na naman ng mga media ang bill na yan…MEDIA FOR SALE!

  • kalikasanipagtanggol

    Mas pipiliin ko na si Teddy sa napakaraming congressmen at senador na ang layunin ay pagsilbihan lang ay mga sarili! Kanino ba interest ang sinusulong ng mga TRAPOs at Dynasty politicians? Sa haba ng kanilang panunungkulan at kasama na dun ang panunungkulan ng kanilang pamilya at dekada na ang inabot pero bakit hindi maramdaman ng mahihirap ang pagbabago na sinusulong nila? Bakit sila lang ang nakakaramdam?

  • ruben_bush

    Naku ayoko dyan kay Teddy Casino.  Dapat consistent sa lahat ng sinasabi. Human rights daw pero pag NPA gumawa ng violations okay lang, tahimik lang siya.  Pag kakampi nila okay lang na maging berdugo. Tignan niyo si Duterte, nagtaas pa ng kamay nila Satur at Liza Maza pero ayon kay Philip Alston ng UN, may kinalaman siya sa mga death squads sa davao.   May sinabi ba yan Bayan Muna tungkol sa Davao Death Squads??? Wala!!!  Ano makabayang abogado daw yan si Neri Colmenares…. eh bakit di mo batikusin yan si Duterte??? Human Rights mo ay di totoo!!!!

      so, ibig sabihin pag tahimik or walang sinasabi ay suportado na nila ito? e? ang ANAD partylist tahimik din sa ginagawa ni Duterte pero pag NPA ay maingay sila. suportado rin po ba ni Alcover si Duterte?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Paolo-Hernandez/100001326302694 Paolo Hernandez

    HUWAG NATIN IBOTO SI CASIÑO SA PAGKA SENADOR! Representative sya ng mga rebeldeng NPA! At Huwag natin iboto sa PartyList ang BAYARANmuna dahil ito ay FRONT NG NPA! Wala na silang pinag kaiba sa mga basahan na politiko…Puro daldal lang ang ginagawa nila sa kalsada. Tapos bayaran pa ang mga sumasama sa rally!

  • etobsify

    “PURGING” Jan magaling si TEDDY CASINO at ang kanyang Private Armed Group na NPA. Research nyo ang “OPLAN MISSING LINK” o basahin ang librong “TO SUFFER THY COMRADES” at nang maliwanagan kayo sa tunay na kulay ni TEDDY CASINO na PAMBATO SA SENADO  NG COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE PHILIPPINES!

  • randyaltarejos

    Sa bagay pagnanalo si Rep. Teddy Casino as senator, ayos na sya. Kahit i purge na ng Comelec yung Bayan Muna na yan, ala syang pakialam. Now, his victory lies in the hands of the people.

     MANILA, Philippines—Bayan Muna Representative Teodoro “Teddy” Casiño
    said Monday the present leadership of the Commission on Elections
    (Comelec) is doing the right thing in cleaning up the party-list system

    - Kung isinama kaya Bayan Muna sa tinanggalan ng accreditation ng Comelec, ganyan din kaya sasabihin nitong si Casino?
