The Commission on Election (Comelec) announced on January 5, 2016 that it will start hearing the consolidated three disqualification cases filed against Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte next week.

“Our First Division will be having a hearing on [these cases] on Tuesday, Jan. 12,” Comelec Chairman Andres Bautista said during a press conference at the Comelec main office in Intramuros, Manila.

The poll chief disclosed the Comelec First Division opted to consolidate the three cases filed against Duterte since the issues raised by its respective petitioners were the same.

Duterte is currently facing disqualification charges filed by Ruben Castor, nuisance presidential candidate Rizalito David, and University of the Philippines (UP) Student Council chairman John Paulo Delas Nieves.
