NEEDS CONTEXT

This list from Right to Know Right Now Coalition (R2KRN) (https://r2krn.org/du30-senate-bet-among-545-tagged…/) and shared by Rappler lists mayoral bet Mauricio Domogan as among 545 tagged by the Comelec as “perpetually disqualified” for failure to file Statements of Contributions and Expenses (SOCE) on time.

Rappler did not name Domogan in their story but his name was indeed included in the link provided. Two other online news outfit wrote about it but did not give a lunk to the list.

This is missing context.

The article states that the Comelec en banc has yet to formalize the disqualification cases for the 545 candidates listed by the Campaign Finance Office (CFO) as it is understaffed and has a severe backlog.

Therefore, individual petitions must be filed to actually disqualify any on the list.

Domogan is currently not officially disqualified. The list only refers to those who may potentially be petitioned for disqualification.
