Spooking The COMELEC

February 27, 2009


Atty. Romulo Macalintal is no ordinary lawyer.

He’s among a select sub segment of the profession that specializes on electoral law in this election crazy country.

But more than that, Macalintal’s top client is President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

So when Atty. ‘Mac’ has a complaint about a case people tent to listen.

But when the good lawyer stakes his profession and dares the chairman of the constitutional elections body to resign, it is something to consider.

It turns out one of Atty. Mac’s other clients recently lost an election protest before the COMELEC and he’s aghast over what he claims is rank incompetence in the poll body.

Chairman Melo surely has some explaning to do since Macalintal’s claims, if correct, could open up a can of worms about the quality of work at the poll body.

But Atty. Macalintal also better be absolutely sure that he is on the right side of this  incident given that people cannot but feel that his tantrum maybe  have something  to do with his ‘influential’ closeness to GMA.
