This post (https://www.facebook.com/antonio.parladejr/posts/4930898423655013), shared with us through our tipline, claims that the support of the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP) and many other members of the Catholic clergy for VP Leni Robredo’s presidential bid is in line with the CPP-NPA-NDF’s ties to the clergy.

This is False.

The Facts: The CPP-NPA-NDF does indeed have a Catholic arm called the Christians for National Liberation (CNL), but even in the archives of the CPP and the CNL (https://cpp.ph/authors/christians-for-national-liberation/) there is not a single statement of support for Robredo, nor even any political candidate.

Neither has the CPP-NPA-NDF declared support for any candidate.

The CEAP meanwhile has categorically and repeatedly denied any ties to the CPP-NPA-NDF (https://www.philstar.com/…/esperon-hits-reds-ceap…), but even then they have been called members of the communist terrorist element by the NTF-ELCAC and Parlade in the past.
