THE Commission on Elections (Comelec)- Cebu City served the goals proclaiming City Councilor Alvin Arcilla ineligible to keep running for another term for supposedly abusing the three-term rule on Tuesday, March 26.

Since the goals is as yet subject to request, legal advisor Marchel Sarno, Comelec Cebu City race chief said Arcilla is as yet considered a possibility for city councilor.
"As it stands now, the choice isn't yet last and executory. As Atty. Sarno expressed, Arcilla is as yet a possibility for city councilor. We educate the voters that Alvin Arcilla is as yet a true blue contender for city councilor this coming decisions. He isn't precluded yet in light of the fact that just a choice which is conclusive and executory can exclude him," legal counselor Amando Virgil Ligutan, representative of Arcilla said.
Attorney Winefredo Orcullo, lawful advice of Arcilla said they will document the movement for reexamination (MR) on Monday, April 1, as a lawful cure on the Comelec goals excluding Arcilla.
Comelec has given Arcilla's camp five days to present the MR.
Ligutan said the issue whether suspension is considered as an intrusion of the term of Arcilla isn't yet a chosen issue.
"It will take a Supreme Court choice completely choosing the issue that will settle the issue so this is as yet a legitimate issue. It's for the general population to choose whether or not he will serve another term," he said.
Ligutan called attention to that in his long periods of open administration, Arcilla was never ensnared in any issue including joining and defilement and has clean records.
