DQ filed vs Chiz Escudero, partymates
Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero is facing possible disqualification from the Sorsogon gubernatorial race for allegedly violating election regulations. Cause-oriented group Bayan at Mamamayan (BM) on Friday filed with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) a petition seeking the disqualification not only of Escudero, but also of his partymates Mayor Manuel Fortes, Rep. Evelina Escudero and congressional aspirant Ditas Ramos of the Nationalist People Coalition (NPC). The group accused Escudero and his companions of donating P50,000 to the Our Lady of Peñafrancia Seminary (OLPS) as payment for the use of the church’s premises in a proclamation rally.
