A. Dimaporo v. Mitra, Jr. Petitioner seems to confuse term with tenure of office.

When an elective official files a certificate of candidacy for another office, he is deemed to have voluntarily cut short his tenure, not his term. The term remains and his successor is allowed to serve the unexpired term. The term of office prescribed by the Constitution may be extended or shortened by legislature. B. Farinas, et al. v. Executive Secretary Facts: Before the Court are two petitions under Rule 65 of the rules of Court, as amended, seeking to declare as unconstitutional (requiring every law to have one subject) Section 14of Republic Act no. 9006 (The Fair Election Act) repeals Section 67 (Candidates holding elective office) Issue: Whether Section 67 of the Omnibus Election Code has been validly repealed. Held: the petition is dismissed Rational: Rep Act No. 9006 does not violate the “one subject-one title” rule.
