Comelec to file appeal
on Team Patay ruling

The Commission on Elections intends to file a motion for reconsideration to the Supreme Court ruling that upheld the display by the Diocese of Bacolod of the "Team Buhay/Team Patay" tarpaulin in front of the San Sebastian Cathedral, InterAksyon reported on its website yesterday.

Senatorial candidates in the 2013 polls who supported the Reproductive Health Law were listed under Team Patay, while those against it were listed under Team Buhay on the tarpaulin.

"I haven't read the ruling yet, but, definitely, we are filing a Motion for Reconsideration. There was significant dissent in the ruling; the voting was 9-5," Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes told InterAksyon.moremoremore
