Political analyst friend of Comelec Chair Bautista says a lawyer of his caliber entrusting his millions to lesser known bank raises suspicion

Political analyst Malou Tiquia, a friend of the Comelec Chairman since 1998 says lawyer of his caliber entrusting his millions to a lesser known bank raises some red flags.

On Facebook, Tiquia summarized the credentials of the Comelec Chairman that every aspiring lawyer could only dream of: ranging from graduating as class valedictorian to earning his Master of Laws in Harvard, did clerkship for Supreme Court CJ Marcelo Fernan from 89-92, to once being nominated to be the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

In short, Comelec Chairman Andres Bautista knows his law and because of the allegation of corruption hanging over his head, Tiquia wants Bautista to take a leave or resign.

Read the post below.

Bautista is no ordinary lawyer. But when he considered LDB as the best bank for his monies, one wonders, what happened? He is no ordinary lawyer to prepare his SALN from PCCG to COMELEC as such.

He earned his Bachelor of Science in Legal management degree from Ateneo de Manila University in 1986, a Bachelor of Laws (Class Valedictorian) from Ateneo Law School in 1990, and a Master of Laws from Harvard Law School in 1993.

He did clerkship for Supreme Court CJ Marcelo Fernan from 89-92.

He was former Dean of the Institute of Law, FEU and was once nominated to be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
He knows the law and he should take a leave or resign.
