The race for the Presidency in the 2010 General Elections was cut down to nine participants, as COMELEC on March 4 declared Vetallano Acosta a nuisance candidate “with no agenda and capability to run a national campaign”. Most voters, and even his running-mate, broadcaster Jay Sonza, do not know Acosta or even his plans and platforms.
Acosta is the candidate for President of the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan (KBL).
However, his name would stay on the ballot, for all of them have been printed already. Votes casted for Acosta during the elections would be considered “stray votes.”
