Court issues TRO to keep Aga on voters’ list

By |


The Court of Appeals’ 12th division on Tuesday granted the petition of spouses Aga Muhlach and Charlene Gonzales to stop the election registration board of San Jose, Camarines Sur, from removing their names from the list of voters there.

After hearing oral arguments, the appellate court granted the Muhlachs’ plea for a 60-day temporary restraining order effective immediately and ordered the election registration board of San Jose to reinstate the couple’s names on the list of voters, according to their lawyer Romulo Macalintal.

Macalintal also said the appellate court ordered the couple to post a P200,000 bond in compliance with court requirements.

He also said the couple were elated by the ruling of the court.

Aga and Charlene filed early this month a petition for certiorari at the Court of Appeals, asking it to review the decision of the municipal circuit court of San Jose to remove their names from the voters’ list because they were not residents of the province.

The ruling was upheld by the regional trial court also last year.

Aga is running for congressman in the Partido district against a member of the powerful Fuentebella clan, which has ruled the district for more than 100 years.

A ruling that disqualifies Aga as a voter in the district would mean he would also be disqualified from running for public office there.

    ang tro ki aga  hindi naman yan yong final resolution ng coart of appeal ibig sabihin inuutusan muna ang lower court na huwag alisin sa listahan ng comelec ng 60 days at pagaralan ang kaso.Ang TRO ay walang merito sa kaso at sa loob ng 60 days tro pweding magpalabas ng desisyon ang court of appeal at kung sino ang papanigan ang natalong partido ay may karapatang dahin sa korte suprema, sa mga supporters ni aga huwag muna tayong  matuwa kasi wal pa iyong final desisyon tro lang yan na magtatapos sa march 15 2013.

    The eligibility of Aga Muhlach,  for his candidacy remains in question, as he was not a bonafide resident of San Jose Cam Sur, not enough months required for the candidacy…True…there wasTRO granted for (60) days. If he wins then it will a ground for disqualification…because its only a TRO meaning  the primary case remains, and it was not adjudicated by the court. anything can happens its politics….His best option is to file an appeal with the SC.  there’s a case file in the SC…Specially, if he wins, its subject to be contested and disqualification, because there was a pending case, regarding his eligibility.He will be spending a lot for the run and lost because of technicalities. He’s running against a master old wolf…be careful…?

    Palagay ko ngayon, kung sakaling payagan si Aga na kumadidato ng walang problema ay delikado ang clan ng Fuentebella. Sigaradong sa panahon ng campaign sorties ay parang fiesta dahil maghahakot si Aga ng mga artista… May tulog ang Fuentebella kasi syempre nakakasawa na sila. E, pag artista malakas ang hatak sa tao. Kapag sa mga local government unit hanggang sa governor ay ayos lang sa mga artista, pero hindi na dapat sa senado… Kapag sa distrito lang ang paguusapan ay malaki ang maitutulong ni Aga, pagkakalam ko ay LP ang partido niya kaya hindi siya kakapusin sa pondo. Ibig sabihin ay tuloy-tuloy ang anomang magiging proyekto niya sapagkat dala niya ang partido hanggang Malacanan…

    hindi naman tanga ang mga taga partido ang mahirap diyan kay aga liberal nga pero ang dinala niya at gumagastos sa kaya ay gobernador namin na nationaaluista party at ang dinadala niyang gobernador ay nationalista at hindi c cadiz na liberal kaya paano yan tutulungan ng liberal magulo ang partido nila dito. At basahin mo sa  phillipine star ngayon ang sabi ni comelec chairman brillantes na walang  silang pakialam sa tro ng coart of appeal dahil walang jurisdiction ang coart of appeal sa comelec kaya magpapalabas sila ng desisyon sa darating na mga araw at oras na ilabas na ito wala nang epekto ang tro. Saka paano yan manalo ni walang organisasyon yan dito , mahina ang mga lider at hindi nakikipagkonsulta.
