Senator Alan Peter Cayetano statement on Comelec's
decision accepting Mayor Duterte's COC

The Comelec en banc's decision to accept Mayor Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte's certificate of candidacy (CoC) and allow his substitution for martin dino is certainly a welcome development. It has affirmed the right of Mayor Duterte to run. This now provides our people with clear choices on who can really bring about dramatic and real change in our country.

We hope that the Comelec 1st division will also be fair as it settles the disqualification issue against Mayor Duterte. This is a simple open and shut case and we are clearly on the side of the law and jurisprudence.

For Mayor Duterte's supporters, I enjoin each and everyone to pray for the Comelec and the Commissioners as they deliberate on this issue. Let us express our support by praying in our respective churches and homes. Mayor Duterte has always said that if God intends for him to become President, then he will be. With divine guidance, and our unrelenting support and vigilance, we will make it so.
