Supreme Court: Appointed officials should their posts before runnning in polls

Manila, Philippines- The Supreme Court has ruled that appointed officials seeking elective posts should quit government posts.

lawyer Romulo Macalintal said he will appeal the new decision. Far from leveling the playing field, Macalintal insist the new ruling is discriminatory against appointed officials since it assumes that elected ones are not using aby positions to promote their personal interests.

“I was looking for new arguments, and they failed to show one,” he said in a separate interview.
