Di pwede: Emil Marañon reacts after dismissed case against Duterte Youth
Election lawyer Emil Marañon reacted to the dismissed case against Duterte Youth.
The abogado said that they were denied with just a one sentence explanation.
We finally received the copy of the dismissal of our Petition against the Duterte Youth. It was dismissed outright with a one-sentence ruling that the proclamation of DUTERTE Youth “appear” to be in accord with the facts and applicable law and jurisprudence. pic.twitter.com/G9uCOxdwB1

Marañon said that the case against the said party-list did not prosper since it appears that its proclamation is in accordance with the law. The abogado said that the implications of this is grave as it only shows that the constitutional, statutory, and jurisdictional requirement of publication is now optional.
He also emphasized that party-list can now join elections even if they are not registered and can sit in Congress even if they are not a recognized party-list. The abogado promised that a motion of reconsideration will be filed out of their belief that the law deserves better.
