ATIENZA TO BONGBONG: IF YOU DON’T PAY TAXES, YOU’RE A CRIMINAL
Backs disqualification case vs dictator’s son
Former Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. should be disqualified from the presidential race, vice presidential aspirant Lito Atienza said after the filing of a petition seeking to invalidate the presidential bid of the late strongman’s son in the 2022 polls.
Atienza believes that the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) should consider the merits of the petition to cancel Marcos Jr.’s certificate of candidacy.
“If you don’t pay taxes, you are a violator, a criminal at that. And you should not be allowed to run for any office not even the presidency, not even as a councilor of Laoag,” he explained.
