FALSE

Claim: There is a leaked COMELEC resolution issued by the COMELEC’s first division disqualifying senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares and the party-list groups of the Makabayan bloc.

Rating: FALSE

Context:

On May 7 (7:32 p.m.), Lamrag Sinirangan (2022) posted a supposedly leaked resolution from the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) First Division stating that senatorial candidate Neri Colmenares and Makabayan bloc party-list groups Bayan Muna, AnakPawis, Kabataan, Gabriela, and ACT Teachers have been disqualified due to having links with communists and terrorists.

The About section of Lamrag Sinirangan’s Facebook page states that it is a non-government organization but does not have any contact information.

Around three hours later (10:02 p.m.), the COMELEC denied the existence of this resolution, explicitly branding it as “fake” (Rappler, 2022).

Lamrag Sinirangan’s post containing the fake COMELEC resolution has been deleted as of 11:33 p.m. on May 7.
