Unformatted text preview: r sub‐groups for the seat allocated to their sector. 4. The members of the party seeking accreditation must have an inherent regional or national presence. 22 Except for matters the COMELEC can take judicial notice of, the party applying for accreditation must prove its claims by clear and convincing evidence. (Separate Opinion of Justice Abad, Ang Ladlad LGBT Party v. COMELEC, G.R. No. 190582, Apr. 8, 2010) Q: Has the Ang Ladlad Party‐List amply proved that it meets the requirements for sectoral party accreditation? A: Yes.

Ang Ladlad represents a narrow definition of its class (LGBTs) rather than a concrete and specific definition of a sub‐group within the class (group of gay beauticians, for example). The people that Ang Ladlad seeks to represent have a national presence. (Separate Opinion of Justice Abad, Ang Ladlad LGBT Party v. COMELEC, G.R.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
