Disqualification case filed vs Erap at Comelec
As Estrada himself said, when he ran for the presidency the second time around, he can vote, and be voted upon.
Estrada attended yesterday’s conference together with his lawyer, Frank Chavez.
The former president seems unperturbed by the petition.
He said, “If I was allowed to run for president in 2010, placing second to President Aquino, why would I be prevented now to run as mayor of Manila? He accused his opponent incumbent Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim as behind this petition.
“This is a “dirty trick” from “Dirty Harry”, he said. Estrada also accused his opponents of forum shopping.
dirty harry vs dirty old man (dom erap) bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
desperate move by pred lim.The petition dated Jan. 11, with lawyer Alicia Risos-Vidal as petitioner, seeks to disqualify Estrada because of his conviction for plunder by the Sandiganbayan in Criminal Case No.26558.
The petition argued that while the “Estrada’s pardon did restore to him his civil and political rights, it did not restore to him his right to run or hold public office or the right of suffrage because it was not expressly restored by the terms of the pardon.”

WE are sure there would be plenty of fascinating contests during the midterm elections this year, but one we would really like to give our attention to is the glamour or grudge match (depending on how you see it) between two veteran politicians who would like to have one last stint in the government as mayor of the city of Manila, their version of the Holy Grail after their long, historic careers in politics.
There are no other big personalities on the ballot for Manila mayor this May—we do wish there were—but the choice is mainly between the 82-year-old incumbent Alfredo Lim and the 75-year-old former Philippine President Joseph Estrada.
Whether either of them could muster the political and financial resources needed to reverse the runaway decay of the city is questionable, but we do remain hopeful.
lasingero, babaero, sigang at sugalero mayor yan b gusto nyo?
panalo na si erap kung ganun
