Disqualification cases filed vs Duterte, 5 other ‘political dynasts’

MANILA, Philippines—Saying the Supreme Court had already defined the meaning of a political dynasty, a civil society group asked the Commission on Elections (Comelec), on Tuesday, to disqualify six prominent local candidates—including Davao City Vice Mayor Rodrigo Duterte—for being “clear and obvious” political dynasts.

In a 32-page petition, members of the group Andayamo (Anti-Dynasty Movement) urged the Comelec to disqualify Duterte; Miguel Luis Villafuerte and his grandfather Luis Villafuerte of Camarines Sur; Dennis Pineda, the son of Pampanga Gov. Lilia Pineda; and brothers Rexon and Sherwin Gatchalian of Valenzuela.

“We chose them because they are clear and obvious (political dynasts). When you say clear and obvious, that means a single position—like mayor, congressman, or governor—being transferred to a spouse or son or two relatives running in tandem, like a mother running for governor while her son runs for vice governor,” said lawyer Alexander Lacson, one of the leaders to Andayamo.

“Of course, there are still many others out there but these are the ones that we read in the newspapers and are brazen, flagrant, and very obvious,” he added.

Lacson was accompanied by comedian Mae Paner and senatorial candidate Ricardo Penson, who earlier launched an anti-political dynasty movement, when they filed the petition at the Comelec before lunchtime on Tuesday.

The petitioners said the Supreme Court had defined the term political dynasties in the case of Navarro v. Ermita (GR No. 180050; April 12, 2011).

In that ruling, Supreme Court Justice Antonio Carpio defined political dynasties in the Philippines as a “phenomenon that concentrates political power and public resources within the control of a few families whose members alternately hold elective offices, deftly skirting term limits.”

“A Supreme Court decision is part of the law of our country. Thus, the above definition of ‘political dynasties’ by the Supreme Court is a definition of the term under Philippine law,” the petition said.

However, Comelec chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. was not enthusiastic about Andayamo’s petition.

“We have no jurisdiction over that. The Supreme Court had just dismissed anti-dynasty moves. What’s the jurisprudence?” Brillantes said in an interview.

“I will have to read that first but my initial reaction is that it won’t fly. I think the petition’s (chances) are slim. But if it was done well, we will hear it,” he added.

The petitioners said the “first type” of a clear and obvious case of a political dynasty is where the candidate “seeks to replace and succeed his/her spouse, parent, child, or sibling who is the incumbent occupant of the public office the candidate is running for.”

They said this was the case in Camarines Sur, where Luis Villafuerte is running against his grandson Miguel Luis for governor, a post currently occupied by Villafuerte’s son and Miguel Luis’ father, Luis Raymond “LRay” Villafuerte.

“Governor LRay Villafuerte is now a candidate for Congressman in the 2nd District of the same province. As son and father of the incumbent Governor respectively, respondents Miguel Luis Villafuerte and Luis Villafuerte belong to that category of clear and obvious cases of political dynasties,” the petition said.

“As further explained hereunder, there is no more need for a law to prescribe that this situation belongs to or falls under the plain and ordinary meaning of the term political dynasty,” it added.

As such, the petition deemed Miguel Luis and his grandfather as not qualified to run for governor of Camarines Sur.

“They, as well as those candidates similarly situated, are prohibited candidates under the Constitution, specifically by virtue of an express prohibition against political dynasties under Section 26, Article II,” the petition said.

In Pampanga, Dennis Pineda is running for vice-governor while his mother, the incumbent governor, is running for re-election.

“If respondent Dennis Pineda and his mother Lilia “Baby” Pineda both win, the Governor and Vice-Governor of the province of Pampanga will be under the mother and son tandem,” the petitioners said.

“As mother and son, they are first-degree relatives. They can inherit from each other under our law on inheritance and succession…Clearly and obviously, they belong to the same immediate family. Clearly and obviously, they have the same interests,” they said.

“This is a clear and obvious case of political dynasty. There will be concentration of political power in the hands of members of the same family,” they added.

    There are NO LAWS regarding political dynasties in PH, this is what the SC has pointed out. Now if Congress want to enact some Laws outlawing this sort of feudal attitude, then fine.

    Bakit mo idamay ang mahal naming Mayor ng Davao City?
    Kung sa kanyang paglilungkod sa Government ay umunlad ang Davao City!!!

    Pumunta ka ng Davao City muna, at alamin mo Andayamo kung anong public service ang syudad namin bago mo husgahan.


    Why not propose to the senate to put a law, na hindi na patatakbuhin ang mga official kung walang nagawang mabuti or walang na-contribute sa previous term nila?

        Yes, you can accuse them na “ginawa na nilang business politika”.
        Why don’t you ask senate officials, hindi nga sila lahat “political dynasty” pero “ginawa na nilang business ang politika” rin!

        Lahat ng mga corrupt ginawang business ang politica. Pero hindi lahat ng Dynasty ay ginawang negosyo ang politica, rather they are good public servant.

        Visit ka muna sa Davao City, kilalanin mo ang Mayor namin at ang mga residente ng Davao City. Bago mo kami husgahan (What we are reflects how our Mayor serve our City)

  • zeroko

    Labo ni Brilliantes. Instead of asserting the clause of “equal opportunity” by his mere statement that there is no pre-campaign violation because there is no enabling law shows that he is out of tune. COMELEC  is an independent body, why can it not impose it’s rule?

  • rightist

    In the absence of an enabling law which our Congress will never enact, only education will reduce the incidence of political dynasties. Of course , even in advanced democracies like the US, there are still political dynasties such as Kennedy, Bush, etc. Absolute term limits (can hold office for 2X or 3X in a lifetime for a certain position) for local officials should also be enacted in the Constitution.

    No govt official in the Phils has the moral fortitude (and balls) to enforce this anti-dynasty law in the country. That law was passed for “pakitang-tao-lamang”. Have Pinoys noticed just how SILENT the CBCP has been and is on this matter? The reason is quite obvious – it is because they benefit from the largesse of the political dynasties!

  • wawa2172

    Our country has never been serious on many things and always may palusot sa batas. Why? Mayroon palang SC decision pinned by Justice Carpio with regards to anti-dynasty. The Comelec looks at the other direction to disregard it. Brilliantes is a political lawyer, he knows the rules but since his position is beholden to those in power her refuses to implement rules on anti-dynasty. Politicians made politics a family business and you don’t need a masters degree to be a professional politician. See how  Estrada, Binay, Arroyo, Cayetano, Duterte, Dimaporo, Gatchalian, Pineda, Villafuerte, Belmonte, etc made a mockery of politics by saying “What political dynasty are you talking about we were voted by the people in elections”. Kaya mahirap paniwalaan si PNoy na wala nang corruption sa Pinas dahil karamihan sa mga dynaties na ito ay nasa LP na ngayon.

    We have the Aquinos, Cojuangcos, Enriles, Binays, Estradas, Revillas, Gordons, Magsaysays, Singsons, Dutertes, Angaras, Cayetanos, and many more. ANG KAKAPAL NG MGA MUKHA NG MGA ITO NA KUMAKANDIDATO. They have violated the Constitution pero ang siyang gumagawa ng batas ang siyang sumisira nito. The Supreme Court is an accomplice dahil di nito binigyan ng tamang interpretation ang batas tungkol dito sa dynasty. Kaya maraming nagpapakamatay mahalal mula lokal hanggang national levels ay dahil milyong-milyong pera ang makukurakot ng mga taong ito. It is always fun in the Philippines.

    And please include the Dynasty Talino in Carmen, North Cotabato. Talino Dynasty includes daughter Emmylou Talino-Mendoza, the incumbent governor; son-in-law TUCP Party-list Congressman Democrito Mendoza; Mayor Rogelio T Talino, himself the mayor; son Kagawad Ryan Talino, the No. 1 kagawad in Carmen; brother-in-law Kagawad Jimmy Saliling Cabrillos. Also the Pinols brothers. Also investigate the COMELEC in Carmen because people of Carmen observed that candidates under Talino always won in election. Talino, a former militaryman has private army called “war dogs” who are notorious killers. In cohorts with corrupt AFP officers of the 602 Brigade, Mayor Talino sold high power fire arms such as M60 machineguns, M14s, M16s and ammunitions to the the barangay: Kibudtungan, Kilala, Aroman, Kimadzil, Bintangan and Highpoint using the barangay Internal Revenue Allotment or IRA.

    “Disqualification cases filed vs Duterte, 5 other ‘political dynasts”

    yeah, your cause is good… BUT why only 5? hmmm… afraid of the other  dynasties?
    maybe this is politically motivated.

    damihan mo naman, di lang naman 5 ang political dynasties… tsk tsk!

    • koolkid_inthehouse

      You’re not a good reader.  The Anti_Political Dynasties petition was dropped by the Supreme Court because it lacks detail definition of what’s Political Dynasties.

      In this report, the Andayamo found a Supreme Court Ruling that will disqualify the 5 candidates.  Supreme Court has a narrow definition which can only cover the 5 candidates. 

      The rest of political dynasties definition must be defined by Senate and congress. Which I think will never happen.  The current self serving members of congress and senate are mostly political dynasties.

      You’re not a good reader. The Anti_Political Dynasties petition was dropped by the Supreme Court because it lacks detail definition of what’s Political Dynasties. In this report, the Andayamo found a Supreme Court Ruling that will disqualify the 5 candidates. Supreme Court has a narrow definition which can only cover the 5 candidates. The rest of political dynasties definition must be defined by Senate and congress. Which I think will never happen. The current self serving members of congress and senate are mostly political dynasties.

        the father garcia was 3 term governor, succeeded by gwen (now on her 3rd term). for this election their candidate is her brother, while gwen runs for congress in his district. i believe that falls under the definition cited by andayamo, FAMILY MEMBERS SUCCEEDING EACH OTHER!

        now it’s either you are not from cebu, and therefore not well informed on what went on for the past 18 years OR you are the one who is not a good reader LOL

        I agree with you. I’m not from Cebu, this might not be covered in this SC definition.  Anti_political dynasties bill should cover this scenario.

      Political Dynasties enriched the themselves while the rest of the country will suffer on their poverty.  There’s no such thing as good political dynasty.
      They can rig all transactions illegally, private or public. They have insider advantages.

    If that be the case, that the Supreme Court had defined Political Dynasty as :
    Supreme Court Justice Antonio Carpio defined political dynasties in the Philippines as a “phenomenon that concentrates political power and public resources within the control of a few families whose members alternately hold elective offices, deftly skirting term limits.”

    AND that…:
    “A Supreme Court decision is part of the law of our country. Thus, the above definition of ‘political dynasties’ by the Supreme Court is a definition of the term under Philippine law,” 

    THEN…, isn’t it about time that
    the COMELEC disqualify candidates that fall under the above SC Ruling…, 
    as part of a Political Dynasty, and therefore goes against a Constitutional Provision…?

  • VeryDisgusted2

    Dutertes are not a political dynasty in Davao. The mayor daughter is a reluctant politician and planned not to run in coming elections. She is a very honest to goodness lady and she hates limelight. Davao City residents don’t want her to go away. I know this because I am from Davao City.

    This leaves the father, Rodrigo, to be alone in politics. Although he is hated by some people outside Davao City, he is supported and loved by 90% of the residents. In Cebu and Manila, a lot of taxi drivers are criminals and hold uppers. In those cities, if someone uses his cellphone in the street, he risks it being taken it away by snatchers. But these cases will not happen in Davao City.

    Both the father and daughter are not involved in corruption and are living in simple lifestyle. Davao City is experiencing unprecedented peace, city cleanliness and economic growth under their helm. Residents don’t want the corrupt challengers and Arroyo’s men in Davao City like Nograles.

    Critics are wrong in labeling Dutertes as a political dynasty. Why not go after the Garcia’s of Cebu, the Ampatuans, Arroyos (this is the worst dynasty in terms of corruption), etc.

    If they complained on Dutertes, why not complain on Angaras, etc.

    Davao City residents are the best judges on Dutertes rather than those armchair human rights activists. Did they raise their voices on recent Negros massacre? These human rights activists are communists and dishonest fund raisers, and do not qualify as judges against Dutertes.

    Also I suspect this anti-dynasty movement, Andayamo, is somehow connected to Nograles, who has intended to replace Duterte as Davao City mayor. Since he cannot get the vote of residents, he go by technical means thru Andayamo. If this entity has legitimate objective why not come up a whole list of dynasties and petition Comelec. This entity has shady aim.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/EA7TIY7PYXEU5UOXG2K5CY5F64 Eric

        The only luxury taste I noticed is his love on motorcycle. But he has outdated motorcycle.

        If you are a Davao City resident and have some proof of his corruption, why not bring it up? At least you can help the public.

        But if you are Carlo Nograles or his father, your comment does not carry weight.

    Kaya meron “dynasty”, kasi ang mga taong walang edukasyon puwedeng bumoto.  E binebenta lang naman nila ang kanilang mga boto, o kaya bobolahin ng politiko.  Nababastos tuloy ang demokrasya.  KUNG ang maari lamang bumoto ay ang mga may edukasyon o nagbabayad ng buwis, WALANG PULITIKONG KURAP NA UUPO.  Sapagkat siguradong sigurado, ang mga taxpayer at mga may edukasyon hindi boboto sa kurap.  Pero siyempre, hindi ipapasa ng kongreso ang ganyang batas.  Kasi ang bumoboto sa kanila ay ang mga tanga.

  • Don

    And for your information, Davao is run well by the Dutertes.  That is what friends from davao tell me.  What the country needs is dictatorship until majority of our citizens are educated.  Democracy requires education.  Sa ngayon kasi, kakaunti pa lang ang Pilipinong may edukasyon pero binibigyan kaagad ng pribilehiyo bumoto.  Kaya maraming kurap na pulitiko.

  • Lovely143

    Thank you to whoever filed this complaint against the Dutertes because through this people will know how well the Dutertes run Davao city. I stayed in Davao for more than 10 years and I know there enemies in politics, these money and power su*kers will do anything just to claim their posts..and then what…use the money for their own good. 

    And btw, please do some research on how the city is ranked as one of the safest cities in Asia and it’s all because of the Dutertes. In my opinion, it is also one of the cleanest cities. I also have to give credit to the people of Davao because they are the most disciplined in the Philippines.  

    I promised myself that I will settle down in Davao and that is because of the Dutertes. You will rarely find their family name posted on walls, roofs, basketball courts, posters and etc but you will feel how they strive to make the city progressive. Check how many local and international investments there are in the city or are still planning put up. 

    I am against family dynasty in government but please spare Davao.
