Democracy on BBM
A law expert said that a leading presidential candidate cannot be disqualified in principle. This is because by doing so, the people will be deprived of their choice. That’s democracy. Atty. Antonio Gabriel Maestrado La Viña is a Filipino lawyer, educator, and environmental policy expert.
Political Law 101
Atty. La Viña said that never in the country’s history that such scenario can happen. BBM will prevail, he added. Despite the many cases filed against Bongbong Marcos, the basic concept of political law 101 is still applicable.
The People will Decide
Regardless of the allegations against BBM, the people will decide in the end. This is what democracy is all about. It might be bad news for the biased media but no one is above the law. They can character assassinate Marcos all they want but he remains the people’s choice.
