Petitioner seeks to declare the Equipment Lease Agreement (ELA) invalid on the ground that it was the same to the Contract of Lease, nullified in G.R. No. 113373. The amended ELA is inconsistent with and violative of PCSO’s charter and the decision of the Supreme Court on 05 May 1995.
Whether or not petitioner possesses legal standing to file the instant suit.
The ELA is essentially different from the 1993 Contract of Lease entered into by the PCSO and the PGMC. Hence, the determination of their locus standi to challenge the validity of the 1993 Contract of Lease does not preclude determination of their standing in the present suit.
