MANILA, Philippines — (UPDATE) Commission on Elections Chairman Benjamin Abalos Sr. said the poll body will adopt the so-called Veterans’ formula in allocating party list seats amid opposition from leftwing groups.

 

Abalos said that while the Comelec, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers, has set the proclamation of 10 of 12 winning Senators Wednesday, it could not do the same for party list groups.

 

With the canvassing of votes in the congressional race still ongoing, it will be premature to declare which group gets the most number of seats in the House of Representatives, Abalos said in a press conference Monday.

 

“Because the party that will emerge as number one will be the one to get three seats under the [Veterans’] formula,” he said.

 

The Supreme Court has ruled that in determining the number of additional congressional seats a winning party is entitled to must be consistent with its October 2000 decision in the case of Veterans Federation Party v the Comelec.

 

Under the “Veterans formula,” additional seats for a party may be determined by dividing the number of votes of the concerned party with the number of votes of the party that garnered the highest number of votes. The votes will then be multiplied by the number of additional seats allocated to the number one party.

 

The same formula was adopted by the high court in throwing out a petition by the Citizen’s Battle Against Corruption for a second seat in Congress in April.

 

But some party list groups, including the leftwing Bayan Muna, are not happy with this representation formula.

 

Cibac has dismissed the method as erroneous, adding it contradicts the principle of proportional representation.

 

In a telephone interview, Bayan Muna lawyer Neri Colmenares said the group has been opposing the Veteran’s formula since 2001.

 

“This formula is wrong. The party list encourages more representatives in Congress,” he said, adding the Party-List Law does not say that the first ranked party list group must be rewarded with additional seats in Congress.

 

Colmenares said Bayan Muna will ask the Supreme Court to stop the Comelec from adopting the Veterans’ formula.

 

“I hope the Comelec will change its position,” he said.

Comelec ruling upsets Bayan Muna By Nikko Dizon
Inquirer
Last updated 02:00am (Mla time) 06/05/2007
MANILA, Philippines — The dust in the party-list race has yet to settle but a new controversy looms with the announcement of the Commission on Elections Monday that only the No. 1 group would get the coveted maximum three seats in the House of Representatives.

 

In accordance with the Comelec ruling, only the pro-life El Shaddai-associated Buhay, which is currently leading the party-list race, would be entitled to three seats.

 

The militant group Bayan Muna will likely get two seats, down from its three seats in the 13th Congress.

 

Comelec Chair Benjamin Abalos Sr. said the poll body would use the so-called “Panganiban formula” instead of the commission’s “2-4-6 formula” in determining the number of seats each winning party-list organization would have in the incoming 14th Congress.
“It’s only the No. 1 group that will get three seats under the (Panganiban) formula,” Abalos said at a press conference after the Comelec, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers (NBC), adjourned for the day.

 

Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Teodoro Casiño described Abalos’ statement as “very distressing.”

 

“Applying the one-party formula will be against the spirit of the party-list law, which is to encourage more party-list groups to join,” Casiño said.

 

He said it was not a coincidence that those that would be hit by the Comelec statement were opposition party-list groups.

 

“I hope Abalos won’t allow himself to be used by Malacañang’s political agenda,” he said.

 

More popish than the Pope

 

For her part, outgoing Akbayan party-list Rep. Loretta Ann “Etta” Rosales said Abalos was more popish than the Pope.

 

“We find the formula problematic as it is, but his interpretation is downright malicious and wrong by reducing us all to one seat each. They really want to annihilate independent voices in the House,” Rosales said.

 

The party-list system allows marginalized groups to take part in legislation.

 

Abalos was referring to the formula created by the Supreme Court to determine the additional number of House seats entitled to a party-list group as it resolved the case of the Veterans Federation Party et al. v. Comelec in 2000. The ruling was penned by then Associate Justice Artemio Panganiban, who retired late last year as Chief Justice.

 

Based on the formula, the additional number of seats of a party-list group is pegged on the number of votes of the first, or No. 1 party.

 

Formula explained

 

On its website, the Citizens’ Battle Against Corruption (Cibac) has posted an explanation of the formula by Dr. Felix P. Muga II of the Mathematics Department of the Ateneo de Manila University.

 

Muga wrote: “The Supreme Court formula, which we call the Panganiban-Veterans Formula, allocates one seat to the parties with at least 2 percent of the total party-list votes.”

 

“Then the additional number of seats of a concerned party is computed by dividing its number of votes by the number of votes of the first party. The quotient is multiplied by the additional number of seats of the first party,” he said.

 

“The integer part or the whole part of this computation is the additional number of seats of the concerned party,” Muga said.

 

“The Supreme Court refers to the ‘first party’ as the party-list group that obtained the highest votes in the party-list election. The first party has one additional seat if it garnered at least 4 percent but less than 6 percent of the total number of party-list votes, or it has two additional seats if it obtained at least 6 percent of the total number of party-list votes,” he said.

 

Muga said the formula imposed a three-seat cap to be consistent with the provision of the Party-List System Act, or Republic Act No. 941.

 

Prevailing doctrine

 

Comelec Commissioner Rene Sarmiento told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that the poll body would follow the formula because “it is the prevailing doctrine.”

 

“It has not been reversed until now. So that’s what we have to follow. That’s the Supreme Court ruling. You have to yield to the Supreme Court [because it is] the highest tribunal,” Sarmiento said.

 

In April, the high court denied Cibac’s petition for a second seat in the House following the 2004 party-list elections.

 

The Supreme Court said the additional seat allocation formula should follow its decision on the VFP case.

 

The Comelec’s audited tally as of June 2 showed that Buhay had 1,015,627 votes, followed by Bayan Muna with 816,340, and Cibac, 667,004.

 

Gabriela Women’s Party ranks fourth with 491,928 votes while the Association of Philippine Electric Cooperatives (APEC) is fifth with 475,190.

 

Some 700,000 to 1 million votes are still to be canvassed by the NBC sub-canvassing committee, according to Bayan Muna lawyer and third nominee, Neri Colmenares.

 

Panganiban’s invention

 

Colmenares pointed out that it was a formula that was simply the “invention” of Panganiban.

 

“Where did the formula come from? Nowhere in the law did it say that there’s this formula that should be followed. Nor was it in the constitutional proceedings,” he said.

 

Colmenares said Bayan Muna had always held the “Panganiban formula wrong” such that when it was the first party in the 2001 and 2004 elections, it never questioned the “2-4-6 formula” implemented by the Comelec, which also gave other party-list groups like APEC and Akbayan three seats each.

 

In the 2-4-6 formula, a party-list that gets 6 percent of the total number of votes cast for the party-list elections would be entitled to three seats. A group with 4 percent will get two seats, and a group with 2 percent, one seat.

 

The Comelec, Colmenares said, never implemented the Panganiban formula, which was why he was surprised that in this year’s party-list elections, it decided to do away with its own 2-4-6 formula.

 

He said the Panganiban formula was not really a formula. “It simply says that the first party will get three seats and all the succeeding parties will get their second seats if they get one-half of the vote of the first party,” he said.

 

“The (Panganiban) formula itself is not right in general and in particular to Bayan Muna. Firstly, the formula says that it is for proportionality but in fact, it (becomes more) disproportionate for the party-list groups,” Colmenares said.

 

Secondly, Colmenares said, the Comelec’s decision to implement the Panganiban formula “is unjust and unfair to Bayan Muna,” which now appears to be the second party.

 

“The fight isn’t over yet. Of course, there’s still a chance (for Bayan Muna to be No. 1). But let’s say that’s the trend (Bayan Muna at No. 2), now they will implement the Panganiban formula?” he said.

 

Personal

 

He acknowledged that the fight over which formula would be implemented in determining the additional seats would be somewhat “personal” because he is Bayan Muna’s third nominee, and thus the one who might not be entitled to a House seat.

 

Should the Comelec decide to implement the Panganiban formula, Bayan Muna would question the ruling in the Supreme Court, he said.

 

He added that with the Panganiban formula, it appears that party-list organizations, even if they get 2 percent of the total votes cast for party-list elections, would occupy fewer seats in the 14th Congress.

 

In the current 13th Congress, the party-list groups occupy a total of 23 seats. Under RA No. 7941, party-list groups are entitled to up to 20 percent (some 50 seats) of the total number of members of the House.

 

(UPDATE 2) Congressman Beltran back in House

Kin wants gov’t to pay for solon’s hospital bills By Maila Ager, Thea Alberto

MANILA, Philippines — Anakpawis Congressman Crispin Beltran is back at the House of Representatives Monday after being detained for over a year following his arrest for alleged rebellion.

 

Wasting no time, Beltran took the floor to lash out at the government, maintaining his innocence on rebellion charges filed against him and other fellow militant lawmakers.

 

“I will no longer provide the details of what had happened except for a few points. The first is, I am innocent of the charge of rebellion and second, it is not against the law or a crime to speak against corruption, graft, and the killings of hundreds of innocent civilians,” said Beltran in Filipino.

 

“It is a bigger crime to remain mute and deaf, indifferent while Filipinos sink deeper, innocent civilians continue to shed blood in the hands of the military,” he said.

 

Beltran also lamented how this government treated him and his co-respondents in the case like a “criminal and fugitive.”

 

Aside from rebellion, the lawmaker said they were also charged with murder when what they only did was to use and maximize their parliamentary rights to speak and stand for the people.

 

He also lamented that because he was in jail, he could not fully help his group, Anakpawis, campaign in the elections last May 14.

 

Nevertheless, Beltran remained confident that he could sill get the justice and freedom that he had been asking for.

 

Beltran also used the opportunity to push his pet legislation, House Bill 345, which seeks to give a P125 across-the-board wage increase for private workers, and a separate legislation seeking a P3,000 wage raise for government workers.

 

And finally, the detained lawmaker concluded his speech expressing his heartfelt gratitude to his colleagues, employees and officials of the House who helped his group fulfilled its commitments to the people, especially those in the marginalized sectors.

 

At a press conference before the session, Beltran also thanked those who helped him settle his hospital bills, which he said had reached to over P1 million.

 

A staff member of Beltran disclosed that politicians from both sides of the fence had helped the lawmaker. They were administration Senators Joker Arroyo and Ramon Magsaysay, opposition Senators Manuel Villar and Ma. Consuelo “Jamby” Madrigal, Congressman Roseler Barinaga, and Quezon City Mayor Feliciano Sonny Belmonte.

 

Beltran arrived at the House an hour before the regular 4 p.m. session. He was accompanied by his fellow partylist representatives — Satur Ocampo, Teodoro Casiño, Joel Virador of Bayan Muna; Liza Maza of Gabriela; and Rafael Mariano also of Anakpawis.

 

Beltran, who was in a pink barong, proceeded to the office of outgoing House Minority Floor Leader Francis “Chiz” Escudero where a press conference was held, with other opposition members.

 

But Beltran’s freedom is temporary.

 

Judge Elmer Almeda of the Makati City regional trial court merely allowed Beltran to leave the Philippine Heart Center in Quezon City to attend the remaining session days of the 13th Congress and the 100th Anniversary of the House of Representatives this week.

 

Ofelia Beltran-Balleta, Beltran’s daughter, had gone to the national police headquarters in Camp Crame to show the court order by Almeda that allowed his father to attend the sessions that began Monday until June 6, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and which authorities have acknowledged.

 

Should Beltran need to stay beyond 7 p.m., he would just ask police to allow an extension, Balleta said.

 

After the session, Beltran will then be brought back to the hospital.

“We are already satisfied at this point that he has been given a pass..since it has been a year since he was detained,” said Balleta whose father was arrested on a rebellion charge in February 2006.

 

Last Friday, the Supreme Court issued a ruling dismissing the rebellion charges filed against him, Ocampo, Casiño, Virador, Mariano, and Maza.

 

The case stemmed from the legislators’ alleged conspiracy with the communists in an attempt to topple the Arroyo administration.

 

Beltran’s co-respondents have prepared a resolution urging the House leadership to support their call for the immediate release of their colleague.

 

“We ask our colleagues to immediately pass a resolution expressing the sense of the House that Ka Bel [Beltran’s nickname] be immediately released from continuing illegal and arbitrary detention in the light of the Supreme Court ruling and the intrinsic merit of his petition,” Ocampo, Casiño, Mariano, Virador, and Maza said in a joint statement.

 

At the same press conference earlier on Monday, Ocampo said a resolution by the House would add up to pressures for the immediate release of the detained legislator.

 

At the very least, Ocampo said the House should help restore the status of Beltran as a lawmaker.

 

A supplemental motion for Beltran’s release based on the high tribunal decision will also be filed either on Tuesday or Wednesday, lawyer Romulo Capulong announced at the same forum.

 

“Not only on the basis of the merit of the petition, not only humanitarian grounds but based on the finding of the SC [Supreme Court] itself,” Capulong pointed out.

 

In the statement, the lawmakers also urged Malacañang to “graciously accept defeat and to respect the decision and prerogatives of high court,” by abandoning its plan to file an appeal on the case.

 

“There is no use for a motion for reconsideration now, except for the obvious reason that the government wants to heartlessly keep Ka Bel in jail and show its vindictiveness to political dissenters,” they said.

 

“The Arroyo government has to face the reality that the opposition, including the militant partylist bloc, has a right to exist sans all forms of harassment and intimidation. Otherwise, democracy becomes a farce,” they added.

 

The lawmakers said it was an outright lie for Malacañang to claim that the high tribunal’s decision had long-term adverse effects on the criminal justice system. It was not only unfair to the High Court but also “doubly unfair “for them, they said.

 

They said the government simply lost its case because of the “legal shortcuts, violation of due process rights of the accused, and politicized acts of prosecutors.”

 

Meanwhile, Beltran’s family wants the government to pay the lawmaker’s hospital bills amounting to almost P700,000 after the Supreme Court dropped the rebellion charges against the legislator last Friday, Balleta said.

 

“Because he has no crime and he should not have been jailed, we demand the government na magbayad ng [to pay] hospital bills at moral damages sa aming [to our] family at kay [and to] Congressman Beltran,” Balleta said.

Balleta said although several senators and lawmakers had offered donations and pledges to pay the bills, she believed that the government should shoulder the charges, which has reached P688,700 as of last week.

She added that the moral damages must amount to P15 million, which meant P1 million for every month that Beltran had been detained.
