On Supreme Court ruling against premature campaigning
The SC decision has strengthened the argument that aspirants for the 2010 elections are violating the law by clogging the tri-media with infomercials, Gordon said.
“The law clearly states that there is a specific period of time when campaigning is allowed,” he said.
“The Supreme Court’s decision is laudable and it should be a strong warning to all candidates that they must adhere to the law.
“The purpose of the campaign period is to level the playing field for all candidates. The whole law was formulated to make sure that nobody should be allowed to campaign before the campaign period.”
