ATTY. ROMULO “ROMY” MACALINTAL #MacaRomy #MacalintalSaSenado

“Kung gutom na kayo sa pagbabago, para sa mga senior citizens, ang kasagutan ay #MacaRomy! Save your last vote for honesty. Tatanda at lilipas din ako, ngunit may batas na iiwan para sa inyo.”- ATTY. ROMY MACALINTAL 

ATTY. ROMULO B. MACALINTAL – 70 years old; married Mrs. Milagros G. Macalintal on June 12, 1982, with three children: two (2) lawyers and one (1) Information Technology graduate. They have five (5) grandchildren.

Atty. and Mrs. Macalintal have been serving the Last Supper of our Lord Parish, Las Pinas City for over thirty three (33) years now, since 1984 to the present.  Atty. Macalintal is a member of his parish’s Adoracion Nocturna Filipina and the CBCP Coordinator for the Laity in the government service during the celebration of the Year of the Laity.

He is also an advocate for the rights of senior citizens and persons with disability.  He introduced and recommended several measures before Congress that will benefit the senior citizens. He has filed and won cases against establishments who violated the rights of senior citizens wherein he asked these establishments to donate substantial amounts to organizations of senior citizens by way of compensating those innocent senior citizens whose rights were previously violated.

Atty. Macalintal is an election lawyer since 1979 to the present having lawyered for top political leaders in the likes of President Gloria Arroyo; President Noynoy Aquino; Vice-President Noli De Castro: Senators Ralph Recto, Manny Pacquiao, Tito Sotto, Migs Zubiri and Representative Vilma Santos-Recto, to name a few.

At present, he is the lead counsel of Vice-President Leni Robredo at the Presidential Electoral Tribunal in the election protest filed by former Senator Ferdinand Marcos against Robredo. 

Atty. Macalintal was a working student after graduating from high school where he started as a messenger and mail sorter at the Manila Post Office; clerk at the United States Veterans Administration but eventually rose from the rank as a Veterans Benefits Counselor, one of the highest positions occupied by a Filipino in that agency of the United States.  He was a working student when he took up law and passed the 1978 BAR examinations with a rating of 83.1% after obtaining his Bachelor of Laws Degree from the University of the East.

At  present, he is running for Senator in the May 2019 election as an Independent candidate and is carried by the coalition formed by Vice President Leni Robredo which is now known as “Otso Diretso” team. His advcaocy or platform is to extend additional discounts to senior citizens and persons with disability. In that one they reach 70 years old, their discount should be 30%; at 80 years old the discount should be 40%  and at 50% discount for 90 years old and above.

On the lighter side of his life, Atty. Macalintal also holds the distinction of being the only one in the world who personally met for two (2) hours former Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali when the latter came to Manila in 1975 for the Thrilla in Manila fight with Joe Frazier.  Atty. Macalintal’s only pass in meeting Ali was an old scrap book containing Ali’s life and fights dating back in the 60’s when Ali was still known as Cassius Clay.
