Lawyered! Mel Sta. Maria jokes about COC filing
Far Eastern University Institute of Law Dean Mel Sta. Maria just made a head-spinning joke about the upcoming senatorial race in 2019. The abogado tweeted yesterday that he will be filing a “void ab inito” COC for senator.
Tomorrow Oct. 18, I will file my void ab inito COC for Senator.

Sta. Maria’s tweet caused quite a stir with the said tweet until they realized what date it is and what the legal term meant. The Latin phrase “void ab inito” roughly translates to “no legal effect” in English.
The abogado is also a day late in his announcement as the Commission on Elections closed their doors to all candidates last October 17, 2018. Many laughed at the joke but some questioned why he refused to run especially when the Liberal Party only has 8 senators in their slate.
Funny guy talaga this guy!
