MANILA, Philippines - The Supreme Court has rejected Kabalikat ng Bayan (KABAKA) party-list group's petition for the court to reverse the Commission on Election's ruling on its disqualification.

In a December 4 resolution, the SC said KABAKA did not comply with the procedural requirement of attaching the Comelec resolution to their petition.

The Court also said Comelec did not commit grave abuse of discretion in disqualifying KABAKA.
