Aray! Ex-Comelec chair Abalos busts own lip at Duterte rally

Former Commission on Election (Comelec) chairman Benjamin Abalos suffered a busted lip after he fell on the stage during a pro-Duterte rally at Quirino Grand Stand in Luneta on Saturday (February 25).

“Benjamin Abalos, pumutok ang labi matapos madapa sa stage sa Quirino Grandstand kung saan nagtitipon ang Duterte supporters,” twitted James Agustin, correspondent of GMA DZBB.

Abalos was one of the personalities who attended the pro-Duterte People’s Rally.

Government officials who also came were Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano, Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial, and Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman Martin Dino.

Abalos, also a former Mandaluyong mayor, was acquitted by Sandiganbayan in 2016 of graft charges in connection with the botched $329-million national broadband network government deal with ZTE Corporation of China.

He was also a former chairman of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
