According to a news report following Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's "victory" at the Sandiganbayan, her spokesperson has hinted that Arroyo will be seeking a second term as legislator.

Are people with pending court cases allowed by our current electoral system to run for public office in any capacity?
Just asking aloud.
I went to the Comelec (Commission on Elections) website to look for candidate qualifications and requirements.
I'm still in the dark as there is no information about those there. (Or maybe the website isn't very "friendly".) There are a whole lot of links for voter requirements, though.
