ERB OKs Loren’s transfer of registration to Antique

0 779

The Election Registration Board (ERB) of Pandan, Antique has approved Senator Loren Legarda’s transfer of voter registration from Malabon City to the town of Pandan.

Legarda received the ERB decision denying the oppositions filed by Atty. Robin Rubinos, Arnold Sastrado, Erlinda Roquero and Felixberta Gumboc on Wednesday.

“I humbly and warmly welcome the favorable decision of the ERB of Pandan, Antique. Even with three oppositions filed against my transfer of voter registration, I have been optimistic that I will win the case because I am fully compliant with the law,” the lady politiko said.

A resolution issued by the Sangguniang Barangay said that Legarda has been a resident of Barangay Mag-aba in Pandan since January 1, 2018.

This complies with the requirements of Section 9 of R.A. No. 8189, which states that a citizen “who shall have resided in the Philippines for at least one year, and in the place wherein they propose to vote, for at least six months immediately preceding the election, may register as a voter.”

Meanwhile, Legarda, who is running as congresswoman of Antique’s lone district, called on her kasimanwas to “unite” and “not instigate hate.”

“Let us work together for the good of our people and our beloved province. There is so much we can do for Antique if we are united,” she said.
