Perlas, Danny Lim make it to official list of candidates in May polls

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Thursday approved the candidacies of environmentalist Nicanor Perlas and detained former Army general Danilo Lim, reversing an earlier decision excluding the two from the official list of candidates in the May 10 national elections.

Through Resolution 8743, the Comelec en banc announced that presidential aspirant Perlas and Liberal Party senatorial bet Lim have been included in the final list of candidates for the elections.

In the same resolution, the Comelec also denied the oppositions and motions for reconsideration of 89 people who filed their COCs for national posts, including presidential aspirants Oliver Lozano and Elly Pamatong and former Manila Rep. Mark Jimenez.

According to the resolution, Perlas was allowed to partipate in the presidential race because of his “distinguished track record in public service” and capacity to launch a nationwide campaign through the environmentalist’s “access to national media” and “organized group of persons… who volunteered to support for his bid for candidacy.”
