Son of Ex-Philippine President Secures Seat as Solon for Security Guards

July 20 – From a vote of 4 yes, 2 no and 1 abstention, the Commission on Election (COMELEC) proclaims Mikey Arroyo the son of former President and now the Pampanga District 2 Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal Arroyo secures a congressional seat as a representative of Ang Galing Pinoy a party-list for the security guard.

The COMELEC commissioners who voted yes in favor with Mikey were Nicodemo Ferrer, Elias Yusoph, Lucenito Tagle and Armando Velasco, while those who said no were Rene Sarmiento and Gregorio Larrazabal and its only Chairman Jose Melo who voted abstention. Former Party-list representative Satur Ocampo (Bayan) and Liza Masa (Gabriella) filed disqualification against Mikey twice yet COMELEC proclaimed him. Opposing group can only appeal at the Supreme Court.

Mikey was a former 2nd district of Pampanga congressman for only one term until her mother succeeded the position. He will be included as the fifth Arroyo who will be joining the 15th Congress where the other three Arroyos were Rep. Iggy Arroyo of 5th District of Negros Occidental (brother in law of Mrs. Arroyo), Rep. Diosdado “Dado” Macapagal-Arroyo of 1st District of Camarines Sur (son) and Ang Kasangga party-list Rep. Ma. Lourdes T. Arroyo (sister-in-law) Now five Arroyos in the congress, Mikey, Gloria, and Lakas Kampi CMD holds majority in congress will it help Congresswoman Gloria Macapagal Arroyo secures her speakership and will her charter change resolution that she passed on her first day in congress will succeed?

All eyes will vigilantly monitoring all the movements of the Arroyos and their alliances in congress, but only one question remains in my mind, in a common person’s perspective – Does Mikey have the credibility to represent a marginalized sector of the society, which in this case the security guards?
