The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has clarified they will leave partisan politics to the lay people.

Archbishop Romulo Valles, CBCP President, particularly refuted reports that they endorsed a number of senatorial candidates.

“The CBCP did not make any such endorsement,” Valles said. “Bishops and priests are not allowed to do that. That is clearly partisan politics.”

“The CBCP continues to appeal to all Filipinos: Vote wisely in the coming elections. Let us continue to pray for a peaceful, credible and honest elections,” he said. The rest of article can be read here: http://cbcpnews.net/cbcpnews/cbcp-keeps-nonpartisan-stance-urges-wise-vote/
