Supreme Court: Erap mayoral bid stays

By Rey E. Requejo | May. 10, 2013 at 12:01am
For now, there is no legal impediment to deposed President Joseph Estrada’s bid to seek for the mayoralty position in Manila City.

The high tribunal had not taken up the petition of lawyer Alicia Risos-Vidal seeking Estrada’s disqualification.

Vidal sought the issuance of temporary restraining order enjoining the Commission on Elections from allowing Estrada to proceed with his candidacy but the matter was not included Wednesday’s special session, an SC insider disclosed.

The SC will resume regular session on June 4. The case was assigned to Associate Justice Marvic Leonen, an appointee of President Aquino in the high court.

Vidal, lawyer of Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim, questioned the recent decision of the Comelec dismissing with finality her disqualification complaint against the former president.

She said Estrada’s conviction for plunder and being sentenced to life imprisonment had rendered him disqualified to run for public office.

Vidal said the executive pardon granted by former President Gloria Arroyo did not restore the right to seek or hold public office.

The SC in 2009 dismissed a similar disqualification case against Estrada when he again ran for President in 2010. The petition, the high court had ruled, was premature without a Comelec ruling.
