Workers party-list group to rally at Supreme Court
WHAT: Rally at Supreme Court en banc session
WHEN: Today, January 22, 10:00 am
WHERE: Supreme Court,
Taft Ave. cor. Faura St.
DETAILS: The newly formed workers party-list group PM COALITION will hold a rally at the Supreme Court to appeal for a decision on pending party-list motions for accreditation. In particular PM Coalition is pushing for its petition asking the high court to overturn the Comelec’s disqualification.
In an en banc session last January 8, the Supreme Court did not act on PM COALITION’s petition for a TRO on the raffle of party-list names and printing of ballots but asked the Comelec to comment on a non-extendible deadline of 5 days. As per PM Coaltion’s information, the Comelec has not submitted a comment.
The PM COALITION rallyists will banner the call “Manggagawa Naman!” in the picket to express its advocacy for representation of workers in Congress and for labor issues to be put in the forefront of the national agenda.
