House impeaches Comelec Chief

The House of Representatives impeached Commission on Elections (Comelec) Chairman Andres Baustista.

Voting 137-75, the chamber on Wednesday overturned the Justice Committee’s recommendation that dismissed the complaint filed by former Negros Oriental  Representative Jacinto Paras and lawyer Ferdinand Topacio of the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption.

“It is with deep sadness that I am informing you about my decision to resign as the Chair of the Commission on Elections by the end of the year,” Bautista said in his letter addressed to Comelec employees.

Reversal of decision

The Justice Committee rejected the complaint as it was “insufficient in form.”

“The result of the voting in insufficiency in form of this complaint renders this complaint dismissed,” House Justice Committee Chairman Reynaldo Umali had said.

After the committee decision, Bautista said he felt “vindicated.”
