Claim: Neri Colmenares, progressive partylists disqualified by Comelec
This image circulating on social media is supposedly from the Comission on Elections (Comelec) disqualifying senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares as well as partylists Bayan Muna, Anakpawis, Kabataan, ACT Teachers, and Gabriela from the elections.
This is false.
The Facts: The image in question does not show any signatures as proof of legitimacy.
Additionally, there has been no official announcement of such disqualifications from the Comelec on any platforms.
The Comelec commissioner’s office has officially disowned the circulating document, calling it fake and false (https://twitter.com/rapplerdotcom/status/1522940028565229568).
This dirty tactic has been a regular feature of elections particularly in the local level.
The timing (hours before the campaign deadline) makes it almost impossible to make corrections. This is vile and Comelec should look hard into the matter.
