Motion to disqualify Bambol Tolentino, partymates junked by POC committee

It’s all systems go for Bambol Tolentino and four members of his ticket heading into the Philippine Olympic Committee elections on Friday.

The POC Election Committee, headed by chairman Teodoro Kalaw, squashed the disqualification cases on Tolentino, Tom Carrasco, Jose Raul Canlas, Cynthia Carrion, and Dave Carter, citing lack of merit.

Carrasco is running for chairman. Meanwhile, Canlas, Carrion, and Carter are seeking seats in the executive board.

Nine candidates from the other block filed the protests, saying that Tolentino, Carrion, Carter, and Carrasco should not have received a salary for the work they did for the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee — a private entity.

Besides this, the petition said that Carrasco and Canlas did not meet the minimum requirements to run. Carter, head of Judo, was questioned as the Philippine Judo Federation was alleged to have been suspended for registration.

Those who filed the petitions were Steve Hontiveros, who is running for chairman; Clint Aranas, who is running for president; Popoy Juico, who is seeking a term as first vice president; Julian Camachom who wants to be treasurer; Monico Puentevellam who is eyeing the post of auditor; and executive board hopefuls Robert Bachmann, Charlie Ho, Robert Mananquil, and Jeff Tamayo.
