LADLAD PARTYLIST TO GET COMELEC ACCREDITATION

Philstar.com / Yahoo news

MANILA, Philippines — A partylist that represents members of the so-called "Third Sex" or homosexuals and transgenders will most likely get the accreditation from the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in time to join the polls next year, an official said today.

Ladlad head Danton Remoto said they are confident to get the nod of the poll body, paving the way for them to participate in the 2010 elections. "The Comelec has talked to us and told us that we will only have to prove that we have a national membership," Remoto said.

Ladlad has a 22,000 current membership and affiliates nationwide, "We also have 10 regional chapters in the country," the Ladlad chief added.

The Comelec has thumbed down Ladlad's accreditation during last 2007 elections, saying that the partylist does not represent a marginalized and underpriviledged sector of society.

Remoto said they also optimistic to get one of the 55 slots alloted for the partylist representatives in next year's polls despite lacking the political machinery and financial resources during the campaign. "What we have now is good for provincial sorties but not for national campaign," he said.

Meanwhile, Remoto said big political parties have already expressed their intention to forge an alliance with Ladlad. Among the political parties include the Liberal Party and the Nationalist People's Coalition, Remoto said.

"By August or September, we'll decide which party to join," he said, noting both LP and NPC are eyeing to ink an alliance agreement with Ladlad. - (Philstar News Service, www.philstar.com)

Mga parausang lumang sinehan

NAG DESISYON na ang Korte Suprema na labag sa Konstitusyon ang ordinansa na nagbabawal ng short time sa mga motel sa siyudad ng Maynila.

Wala na ring balak pa umanong maghain ng apela si mayor Alfredo Lim sa naturang desisyon.

Nagbabala naman si Lim na handa niyang ipasara ang anumang motel sa lungsod ng Maynila sakaling may makita sila na pinapayagan na magpapasok ng mga estudyante para magshort time.
Pero, teka, ito talaga ang pakay ko, ang mga lumang sinehan sa Metro Manila.

Taong 2005, balak ko na itong iparating sa dati kong boss na Kongresista, ang patuloy na pamamayagpag ng mga lumang sinehan sa Maynila. Subalit, may tila tinik sa aking lalamunan na nakabara. Tila, wala akong boses sa tuwing ako ay maghahanda sa aking mga sasabihin. Tila, nakagapos ang aking mga kamay para isulat ang mga hakbang na dapat kong irekomenda para masulosyunan na ito.

Alam ko, ikaw ay pamilyar ukol sa mga lumang sinehan sa buong Kamaynilaan.

Sa unang pasok ko sa ganitong sinehan, ako ay tuwang tuwa. Napan…

PILIPINAS, TUNAY NGA BANG MALAYA NA?

NGAYON ANG IKA 111st NA ANIBERSARYO NG ARAW NG KALAYAAN NG PILIPINAS. Ngunit, sa paglipas ng isang daan at labing isang taon, tunay nga ba tayong malaya na?

May mga pagkakataong gusto kong isipin na hindi na tayo nakagapos sa mga bansang banyaga dahil nagkaroon na tayo ng kalayaan sa pamamalakad ng gobyerno. Ngunit, ano ang kalagayan ng mga Pilipino ngayon? Mayroon na nga ba siyang dangal na matatawag? Taas noo na nga ba ang bawat Pilipino kahit kanino?

Sa mga nakalipas na araw, samu’t saring problema ang dinaranas ng ating bansa. Mga problemang lalong nagpapalugmok ng bawat mamamayan. Mga problemang animo’y walang katapusan. Paano babangon ang isang Juan dela Cruz kung mismong mga namumuno sa ating bayan ang nagbabangayan? Paano tayo makakalaya kong mismong mga halal ng bayan ang siyang nanguna upang itali ang bawat mahihirap na pinoy sa kanilang pamamahala?Paano na ang walang tigil na pagbulusok ng presyo ng mga pangunahing bilihin? Ang walang humpay na pagtaas ng gasolina. Paano pa m…
