ARINGAY, La Union – The Commission on Elections has dismissed a  disqualification case filed against the vice mayor here. 
Comelec Second Division Commissioners Arthur Lim, Al Parreno and Sharif Abas junked the petition of former mayor Teresita Ong to disqualify Vice Mayor Charlie Juloya due to procedural lapses in filing the case. 
“The case was filed out of time. The petition to deny or cancel the certificate of candidacy must be filed within five days from the last day of filing (of COC)s, but not later than 25 days,” the Comelec decision issued on Jan. 18 stated. 
Ong filed the case on Nov. 9, or 28 days after the last day of filing of COCs. She said Juloya did not renounce his American citizenship.

 Ong is running for mayor while Juloya is seeking reelection.
