Lifestyle check for Comelec officials after Bautista’s ‘shocking’ alleged ill-gotten heath – Poe

0 26

Senator Grace Poe has called for a lifestyle check on Commission on Elections (COMELEC) officials following the “shocking revelations”about the alleged unexplained wealth of chairman Andres Bautista.

Poe also said Congress should allow the proper and duly mandated offices to look deeper into the criminal aspect of Bautista’s case without pre-empting any possible complaint for impeachment.

“…These investigations should not deter the Senate from looking into the veracity of the other aspects of the allegations that appear to be supported by documentary evidence for purposes of coming up with appropriate remedial legislation,” Poe said.

The lady senator said the issue is more than just a quarrel between Bautista and his wife.

“It can no longer be framed merely as a ‘wife vs. husband’ quarrel. The information made public points to the possibility of a ‘husband vs. the people’ case,” Poe said. (Philipine News Agency)
