Nullify Maguindanao election, Comelec urged

Jun. 06, 2007

MANILA — Senate Minority Leader Aquilino Q. Pimentel Jr. (PDP-Laban) today urged the Commission on Elections, acting as national board of canvassers, to void the election results in Maguindanao due to the alleged massive fraud in the province in the May 14 elections and to proclaim the winners of the senatorial elections without the Maguindanao votes.

“There is enough evidence to nullify the Maguindanao votes. Comelec should proclaim the winners of the senatorial race without the Maguindanao votes,” Pimentel said.

“Otherwise, we encourage political warlords to defeat the will of law-abiding citizens,” he said.
