Koko seeks swift action from Comelec
SENATOR Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III on Saturday called on the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to quickly decide on the pending disqualification case filed against him, saying the issue could be used by certain “political forces.”
“Dapat mabilis na
nilang iresolve ‘yan kasi habang pine-pending ‘yan merong side na natutuwa. Malay mo ang purpose ng ang side na ‘yun magkaroon lang ng pending na issue,” he said in an interview with radio station DWIZ.
“Siguro political forces are at work. Gusto lang nila gumawa ng issue para magamit sa politika pero legally, speaking alam na natin sagot diyan.”
Pimentel is currently facing a disqualification case on his senatorial bid for the 2019 elections, which was filed by Lawyer Ferdinand Topacio.
