FIRST READ ON PEP: Dingdong Dantes appeals to Comelec to reconsider Fair Election Act

"I appeal to the sense of reason of the Comelec and Supreme Court to clarify the present issue and what I perceive as a flaw in the law," said the actor who will meet with youth volunteers as soon as he returns from Spain.


Kahit na kasalukuyang nasa Spain ngayon ang actor na si Dingdong Dantes, very much aware pa rin ito sa biglaang paglabas ng ruling ng Comelec, ang Republic Act 9006 o ang Fair Election Act, kunsaan, kung talagang ii-implement ito, siguradong marami sa mga artista ngayon ang posibleng maapektuhan.

Ibinalita kahapon sa PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) na nag-uusap na ang mga taga-Ayos Na (Advocacy for Youth and Students for Noynoy Aquino) hinggil sa paglabas ng naturang batas.

Ayon din sa talent manager ni Dingdong na si Perry Lansigan nang makausap nito ang actor, pag-uwing pag-uwi raw nito galing ng Spain ay siguradong makikipag-usap at makikipag-meeting ito sa mga bumubuo ng Ayos Na.

DINGDONG'S STATEMENT. Kanina, nakatanggap ang PEP ng text message mula mismo kay Dingdong kunsaan nakasaad ang kanyang official statement regarding the Fair Election Act para sa mga katulad niyang artista.

Ito ang nilalaman ng kanyang text message:

"The Comelec rule prevents artists from participating responsibly in a very important political exercise. It even deprives some artists the chance to earn extra income only because they are working in a candidate's campaign.

"Worst, it forces many artists like me who are volunteering for Kuya Noynoy Aquino for free, to choose between making a decent living and making a difference in a supposedly democratic exercise. I appeal to the sense of reason of the Comelec and Supreme Court to clarify the present issue and what I perceive as a flaw in the law.

"I request legal luminaries to guide and support us on this important issue. Most of all, I call on my friends and fellow workers in the industry to make our common stand."
