Sino ngayon ang bobo? Wrong form delays Gadon’s COC filing
By JOHN CARLO M. CAHINHINAN
Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL) senatorial bet Lorenzo “Larry” Gadon’s filing of candidacy of Friday has been delayed for about two hours, apparently after submitting an incorrect form.
Gadon who gained popularity for his famous taglines “Mga bobo!” and “Hindi ako bobo!” arrived at the main office of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) before 2 p.m. of Friday to formally file his certificate of candidacy (COC) for senator.
But the supposed smooth process for Gadon just like other candidates has lingered after the lawyer submitted a wrong COC form.
COMELEC spokesman James Jimenez disclosed that Gadon—the man who filed impeachment charges against deposed Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno last year—initially filled up an incorrect document.
“The form that he submitted in the first instance was not the form he should not submitted,” said Jimenez.
Gadon was brought in a holding room while accomodating other senatorial aspirants.
When asked if he did submit a wrong COC, Gadon stressed that his 2×2 photos ran out.
“Kinulang ng picture, photo… wala naman. Hindi naman nila tatanggapin pag mali yung form,” he said.
