Mark Enverga and Agnes Devanadera Disqualified

Written By David D'Angelo on Friday, April 23, 2010 | 4/23/2010

Mark Enverga and former Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera had been disqualified as Congressional Candidate for the 1st District of Quezon Province. As a result of this Amang Greg Cabigan who is running under the Philippine Green Republican Party (PGRP) and Magdalo is a sure winner.

Cabigan related that Enverga admitted that he was not a resident of the first district of Quezon province when Enverga wrote on his certificate of candidacy that his address is in Brgy. Ibabang Dupay in Lucena City, which is part of the 2nd district of Quezon Province. Cabigan cited that it was former Justice Sec. Alice Devanadera's lawyer Makalintal Romulo who discovered that Enverga has been a resident of Lucena City since 2007.


“ Ang pagiging residente ng distrito kung saan ang isang tao ay kumandidato bilang Kongresista ay requirement ng saligang batas” (Being a resident of the district where a candidate is running is a clear Constitutional requirement), Greg Cabigan stated.

In the case of former Justice Sec. Devanadera, it was orginally Devanadera's sister Elizabeth Torres-Suarez who filed the certificate of candidacy to run as congressman in the 1st district of Quezon Province. There was a substitution in candidates in December 12,2009, and Devanadera run in place of her sister Torres-Suarez who did not sign the Comelec certificate of nomination and acceptance as candidate.

“Tuwirang inamin ni Elizabeth Torres-Suarez na hindi siya pumirma sa certificate of nomination and acceptance sa Comelec sa pagkakandidato bilang Kongresista. Kaya hindi siya puedeng palitan ng kahit sinuman. Si Devanadera hindi tunay na kandidato ng 1st district.” (Elizabeth Torres-Suarez admitted that she never signed here Certificate of Candidacy therefore she cannot be replaced by Devanadera),Cabigan explained.

“Buksan na po natin ang ating kaisipan. Hahayaan po ba natin na patuloy tayong paglaruan ng mga politikong pareho namang disqualified? Ang tunay na congressman sa unang distrito ng Quezon, dapat dala ang tunay na pagbabago para sa progresibong bayan. Sa mga dokumentong ito, Dios na ang humahatol.” (Let us open our eyes. Should we continue to be toyed by politicians who are both disqualified. The real candidate for the 1st District of Quezon should carry the change needed. In these documents God has already decided.) declared Cabigan.

Nicanor Perlas sent this message, “ I totally support the congressional candidacy of Amang Greg Cabigan in the 1st District of Quezon Province. We need new blood in the government and Amang Greg is one of those espousing new politics.”

Greg Cabigan, a farmer and herbalist is running under the Philippine Green Republic Party (PGRP) and is the Chairman of Samahang Magdalo of Quezon Province. The first district of Quezon Province covers 13 towns that include Real, Infanta, Nakar, Polilio, Panukulan, Bordeos, Patnanungan, Jomalig, Mauban, Lucban, Pagbilao,Tayabas and Sampaloc.

I suggest that think of what they can do to the first district... I am happy na marami ang nagiisip na maglingkod sa ating distrito but I'm sad because they can do worst things just to get in. Remember, they would be our leaders who will serve us in the next three years not who will own us. There are many ways to serve people!

Enverga was certified as resident and registered voter by the Comelec and Mayor Rex Bantayan of Mauban, Quezon. In fact we have the same precint. Sad to say just for power good can be bad and bad can be good. I hope true leader by words, by thoughts and by action win.

let us accept the fact that cong. mark enverga failed to meet the requirements for his candidacy as congressman of the 1st district of Quezon being a resident of the 2nd district. he accepted it personally when he filed his certificate of candidacy in the may 2010 election. no one can alter the truth of what he stated in his COC that he resides in lucena city not even certifications from any 2nd party regardless of his position in government. He is disqualified.... SO BE IT!
