‘Overaged’ SK chair cries foul

Ian King March Pimentel Miyake, the winning Sangguniang Kabataan chairman of Cugman, this city, who faces disqualification for being overaged cried foul.

Miyake said he respects the decision of the Commission on Elections but explained that he did not insist on running even though they were reprimanded.

In his case, according to Miyake, after he filed his certicate of candidacy, the Comelec called and told him about his age where he was directed that he can withdraw his candidacy.

Sa akoa nga case, nakapasa na ko. Tapos gitawagan ko nila about (my) age. Tapos ni-ingon sila nga pwede ra mag cancel,” said Miyake.

But working as a pastor, he had no time to withdraw his candidacy.

Tapos akong ante akong gipaadto kay na busy ko. Pero ang gi-ingon nila sa akong ante nga gikan sa Comelec pwede sila mudagan ug pwede pa sila mangampanya, ug matud pud sa ako kaubanan kay same man mi ug case, gi-istoryahan siya about sya sa age, pero still ilaha gihapon ipadagan,” claimed Miyake.

Miyake said did not withdraw his candidacy, but emphasized that he did not insisted to run like what the Comelec said.

Pero kung word nga insist, wala mi ana kay nasabtan namo ang law,  wala lang mi ka file ug cancellation.
