Petition to National Youth Commission, Commission on Elections, Senator Joel Villanueva

Approve the Certificate of Candidacy of SK Candidates who are already 24 years old

The Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections is occuring in a few days. Kasama dito ang napapanahong filing ng Certificate of Candidacy ng Kabataang lalahok sa SK Elections 2018. Sa ngayon, mariing pinagpipilitan, ng National Youth Commission at ng COMELEC na ang mga makatatakbo sa SK ay "at least 18 years but not more than 24 years of age on the day of Elections", sang-ayon sa Section 10 ng Republic Act 10742 o mas kilala sa SK Reform Act. Kaugnay nito, pinapakahulugan nila na ang "more than 24 years" ay kung lumagpas ka ng buwan sa itinakda, meaning dapat 24 years, 0 months and 0 years old ka sa May 14, dahil daw ayon sa Section 31 ng Executive Order 292, at sa section 13 ng Republic Act 386: Legal Periods. - "Year" shall be understood to be twelve calendar months; "month" of thirty days, unless it refers to a specific calendar month in which case it shall be computed according to the number of days the specific month contains; "day," to a day of twenty-four hours; and "night," from sunset to sunrise, at nangangahulugan daw ito na ang edad ng mga nag 24 na bago ang May 14 Elections ay isang uri ng ineligibility. Bukod dito, ginagamit ng COMELEC ang kaso ni Garvida at Sales, G.R. No. 124893. April 18, 1997, na natanggal sa posisyon bilang SK Chairman dahil lumagpas na ang kanyang edad sa itinakda ng Local Government Code Section 428. Tinutukoy ng Local Government Code na ang edad ay at least 15 at hindi hihigit sa 21 taong gulang. Sa paggawa ko ng petition na ito, mayroong halos 180,000 pa lang na Certificates ang na-file para sa halos 300,000 na posisyon na inaasahan sa SK. Ayon sa SK Reform Law, Section 36, kasama ang Section 428 sa ire-repeal ng batas kung may inconsistencies. Ibig sabihin nito, hindi na epektibo ang kaso ni Garvida vs. Sales sa estado ng 2018 SK Elections. Isa pa, ang tinatanong lamang sa Certificate of Candidacy para sa SK Chairperson at SK Kagawad ay ang edad o age in YEARS. Malinaw dito na di kasama ang sobrang edad sa buwan. Kaya kung gagamitin natin ang Civil at Administrative Code, kapag sinabing taon ay taon lang. At dahil di naman tinatanong sa COC ang edad sa buwan, ibig sabihin kung di ka pa 25 years old ay hindi ka "...more than 24 years of age on the day of elections." Iaapela natin sa National Youth Commission at sa COMELEC na dapat aprubahan nila ang edad ng mga umabot na sa 24, dahil ang tinatanong lamang sa COC ay ang edad sa taon, at hindi na effective ang Garvida vs. Sales na kaso ngayon. Additionally, hihingi din tayo ng extra 1 day filing kung sakaling payagan ang ating kahilingan. Sa paisa-isang pagpirma sa petition natin, makakamit din natin ang ating tagumpay. Kaya please, sign and share this petition!

Petition to Bruce Rauner, Dick Durbin, Tammy Duckworth, Illinois State Bourd of Elections, Illinois State Voters

Remove Author Jones from the ballot for Congressional Midterm Elections in Illinois

The 2018 Midterm Elections are months away but one candidate in the Third District is causing a lot of commotion. In 2016 Author Jones was disqualified for making a racist speech about Jews and denying the Holocaust. I hate to tell you guys this but he is running again and this time unopposed. Author Jones is a Nazi, He has denied the Holocaust, He was in the car in Charlottesville when his co-conspirators James Alex Fields Jr. and Nazi leader Richard Spencer ran over and murdered Heather Heyer, and he has been at every Nazi rally from Hayden Lake to Charlottesville. This man should not be running for office. He's a Nazi, he practices hate, he has a Swastika tattoo, he holds the rank of Imperial Wizard in the KKK, he denies the Holocaust, he swears on Mein Kampf, and he is not a nice guy. I am asking Senator Dubin, Senator Duckworth, Governor Rauner, the Illinois Election Commission, and all Illinois voters to remove this evil man from your ballot. We don't need a Nazi in Congress to quote the Illinois Republican Party. "The Illinois Republican Party and our country have no place for Nazis like Author Jones. We strongly oppose his racist views and his candidacy for any public office." Jones is a nobody and a nutjob. He should not be running for public office and it is up to you people signing this petition to keep him out. Please sign the petition, call your leaders in Illinois, write to your leaders in Illinois, and go to the polls and vote. We don't need Jones running for Congress and we don't need Nazis in Washington D.C or running this nation.           .
