Imelda Papin: Disqualified

MANILA, Philippines—The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has canceled singer Imelda Papin’s congressional bid as representative of the lone district of San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan, for lack of residency.

In a 10-page decision, the Comelec Second Division ruled that Papin was ineligible to join the congressional derby after finding merit on the case filed by Arangkada San Joseño Political Party that questioned her residency in the city.

“[The] respondent’s certificate of candidacy (CoC) must be canceled for making false material representation relating to her residence and for claiming that she is eligible to run for elective office,” said the order signed by Election Commissioners Lucenito Tagle, Elias Yusoph and Grace Padaca.

Papin, popularly known for her songs “Isang Linggong Pag-Ibig” and “Bakit,” was elected vice governor of Camarines Sur in 1998. Her term ended in 2004. She ran for senator under the Bangon Pilipinas party in 2010 but lost.

    Imelda Papin disqualified as Bulacan congressional bet….

    What???
    Papin, the Bicolana disqualified to run in Bulacan, whereas Aga not a Bicolano allowed to run in Bicol.
    This is discrimination.

    • Marx Louis Wang

       Ni-research mo ba yung residency ni non-bicol speaking Aga sa CamSur? Ikumpara mo ito sa residency ni Imelda sa Bulacan. Kung bakit hindi pa kasi sa Bicol na lang nagkandidata itong si Imelda para talunin niya si Aga.

    TRO is the best way to go.

  • pcosmachine

    IMELDA PAPIN WAS DISQUALIFIED SIMPLY BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT QUALIFIED.

    SHE IS A BICOLANA, NOT A BULACANA.

    SHOWBIZ PERSONALITIES NEED SOME REALITY CHECK FROM NOW ON.

    THEY ENTER POLITICS BECAUSE THEY ARE LURED BY THE PORK BARREL FUNDS AND OTHER PERKS THAT COME WITH BEING A LEGISLATOR, NOT BECAUSE THEY WANT TO SERVE THEIR CONSTITUENTS.

    UNLESS YOU ARE QUALIFIED, CORRUPTION-FREE AND HAVE THE PASSION TO SERVE YOUR CONSTITUENTS UNCONDITIONALLY, DO NOT DARE OR WASTE YOUR TIME TO RUN FOR ANY PUBLIC OFFICE FOR THE SAKE OF THE COUNTRY.

    wala ng bumibili ng mga ‘plaka’ at ‘cassette’ nya, kaya sa pork barrel na ang target nyang income.

    ganyan kababaw na ang kalidad ng bumubuo sa larangan ng mambabatas.  wala na ang mga taong ang tunay na layunin ay ang nasionalismo at patrotismo.  panay pera lang ang hangad, sariling bulsa lang ang habol.

       Nakuha mo pare ko !  Yan na ang trend over the last10 to 20 years. Yung
      mga may kaya as in children of old rich, pati na rin mga artista na
      LAOS na ay tumatakbo as politicians, dahil easy money, little effort.
      Ang puhunan lang nila ay ang madaling Utuin na mga kababayan natin
      (unfortunately dahil hindi kagalingan ang education). Dahil kay Reagan, natutunan ng mga artista na puros arte lang ang kailangan para maboto.

         Tingnan ninyo ang mga politiko natn in action, yung mga laos na
      artista puros nakaupo lang sa silya pero kung kumilos akala mo madaming
      alam sa pagiging mambabatas.

         Easy money, fast money, celebrity status, little effort.

    good for her!

  • zeroko

    He he he. Nagiging “Circus” talaga ang politiko natin. Many are capitalizing on their popularity. Subukan po ninyo ako bilang Independent Mayor Candidate of Q.C. I have 19 different careers in my life time, and if I win, it will be my 20th. I am challenging the dirty establishment. Here below is the list of my careers.

     Henry E. Samonte’s Biodata:
    1. at age 17, I worked as Landscaper Supervisor in
    PHHC, which is now the National Housing Authority. I got scared that I may not
    finished Agriculture on my first year, 1st semester in UP Los Banos because
    half of my classmate did not make it through the second semester, so I quit and
    took a job.
    2. After earning a BS in Agriculture in 1961 I
    became a travelling salesman of “Royal Genato Food Corporation. We sell
    Frankfurters, Vienna Sausage, Suriso de Bilbao, Mango juice, Mango halfs, Mango
    Concentrates, ham and beacon, and etc. We traveled all the way to Aparri
    selling our products.
    3. I became an Advertising Solicitor with former
    Examiner Magazine Newsweekly. My job is to go to big companies to solicit
    advertisement to our magazine.
    4. Then I became a Rural Agriculturist under the
    Bureau of Agricultural Extension, and was assigned in Bantog, Talavera, Nueva
    Ecija for a year. It was 1963.
    5. Sometime in 1964, I passed entrance exam as
    trainee in Philippine Airline Aviation School batch 1964. Out of approximately
    5 thousand applicant, there were just 25 of us who were accepted as Pilot
    trainee. Then only 20 of us became regular pilots.
    6. During the Pilot strike of 1970, I transferred
    to Air Manila International up to 1974.
    7. I transferred again to Philippine Aero
    transport and Development Corporation, a semi government charter cargo business
    which flies all over the globe. I flew the C-130 military cargo airplane. I got
    my initial training in Marietta, Georgia, USA in Lockheed Corporation. Marietta
    is a Southern State and the Capital of Georgia is Atlanta, a territory of the
    Confederates during the Civil war.
    8. In 1977, I flew as Cargo pilot for Congressman
    Roquito Ablan of Ilocos Norte.
    9. In 1978 I went back to Philippine Airlines. I
    retired as pilot of the biggest jet at that time, the famous B-747-400.
    10. In 1989, I joined the pilot labor strike
    against Lucio Tan. He he he. Who can defeat someone with a name Lucio for
    Lucifer and Tan for Satan. HE he he. Talo kami! And finally I officially
    retired in 2000. I can still fly up to 65, but I just feel fed up whenever I
    hear the sound of an airplane’s engines. I could have earned additional
    substantial amount of money, but what if I die right away? I would not have
    enjoyed the company of my family.
    11. In 2001, I established a lending Investors.
    The business did not last because there are more defaults than those who were
    able to pay their dues.
    12. In 2002 I opened up an Aluminum, Glass, and
    Iron fabrication. Again I closed up because my laborers were so dishonest.
    13. Then, I trade truck loads of Charcoals from
    Infanta Quezon, but again I was booted out by my buying agent and my salesman.
    They join together and operated their own business which just lasted with with
    one deal. My former Salesman run away with the money. He he he.
    14. I opened up a 13 room dorm in Sampaloc,
    Manila. which is still operating.
    15. Have a Barbershop and Beauty parlor here in
    Barangay Roxas and it is still operating.
    16. one passenger jeep
    17. one brand new taxi unit
    18. I’ve several cattle in Talisay, Cebu.
    19. I have two small fishing boats in Matalum,
    Southern Leyte.
    20. He he he. now I’m running as Independent Mayor
    Candidate against Mayor Herbert Bautista.

      it sounds that you are a very hardworking person but unfortunately you will be battling a political  giant in the person of HB.bakit nga ba ganoon ang mentality ng mga filipino voters?kahit alam nilang korap at talo sila sa isang trapo tulad ng mga enriles,estradas,binays,macapagals ay pilit nilang ibinoboto kesa subukan ang mga bagong mukha na tulad ninyo?

    • boybakal

       wow, very inspiring story.
      from nothing to more and back to less.
      the problem with you is….you have too many qualifications, no loyalty and no expertise.
      anyway, good luck…time is short for you now.

    • joeybg

      best thing that you can do…….. hamunin mo ng debate si Bautista at campaign everyday specially sa mga remote area., ilabas mo ang baho ni Bautista lalo na ginagamit niya ang mga pera ng taxpayer sa kanyang mga good time.

    • branlem

      ok nice..you seem to be an honest hard working person with good intentions in serving…any political platform you want to announce…I want to know what you intend to achieve and how…thanks…

    • WeAry_Bat

      Sana manalo ka at hindi maging trapo.  Pero:

      How do you propose to act on the landgrabbing case which involved a known landgrabber and several establishments & houses already built on the land?

      What is your stand on the issue of the land of MSBF, a QC City Hall landgrabbing case?

      What about the increase in realty tax without dialogue and decided at the speed of light?

      The high fees of Civil Registry?

      Perceived crimeliness of QC?

    • dodong1

      you are OVER QUALIFIED FOR THE POSITION , kailangan mo lang high school graduate at be an artista..

     Mabuti pa ay tumakbo na at mamuhay sa Amerika gaya ng marami ng laos na artista. Madali sa kanila, O-visa lang ang kailangan pero doon, kailangan pa rin silang magtrabaho at kumayod araw-araw. Sa Pinas pag-sinuwerte at naboto, easy money, na naman. Just say “I love to serve the Filipino people.” okay na ang bulsa mo.

    Dapat lang.

  • divictes

    Bakit? Isang Linggong residency lang.

    • dodong1

      ha ha ha ha good one…

  • $42337655

    haha, eh mukhang may bahay na sa Amerika . Baka nga green card holder na ito pero gusto pang kumita sa Pinas. Which means mas malaki ang kikitahin nito sa Pinas kaya ayaw todong lumipat sa Amerika.
    talaga naman , kanya-kanyang technique sa hanapbuhay.
    big,easy money and little effort kapag sa Phil. politics. Kailangan konting arte lang.

  • bugoybanggers

    hanep talaga, from BIKOL to Bulacan.. ang dami pala talagang TANGA at BOBONG Pilipino kung pinatulan nila itong mga klaseng tao. Buti naman pumalpak! Ika nga, nasa mga Tao ang pag pasya kasi nalonod na sa KATANGAHAN ang mga ito. Makikita ninyo ang mga fans kuno kung gaano nila sambahain ang idolo nila? ito yata ang turo sa mga schools ayon sa guidance ng DECS at CHED.. Okay sino kayang artista ang may lakas loob o balak kumandidato sa MAGUINDANAO, Tawi-tawi o Jolo isama mo na ang Basilan at Lanao del Sur.. asan na kayo? Mag file na kayo baka maihabol pa.

    Please, Show Biz personalities, stick to TV; you can serve the public there instead! There’s not much room for error when we’re trying to move forward as a nation, and there you are riding the momentum thinking that you can just have a good time! Stay away from Politics! Take it from Dolphy!
