Gatchalian defends Guanzon: Give her credit for preventing party-list bastardization


Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has thrown support for Commission on Elections (COMELEC) commissioner Rowena Guanzon, dismissing the “impossible” extortion allegation hurled by an aspiring politiko against her.

Gatchalian said Guanzon comes from a family of public servants from Negros and should even be commended for preventing the abuse of the party-list system.

Former National Youth Commission chair Ronald Cardema has alleged that Guanzon tried to extort money and favors in exchange for the accreditation of the Duterte Youth party-list group. Guanzon has denied the allegations made by Cardema.

Cardema was earlier disqualified as Duterte Youth party-list nominee for being too old.

“This allegation is impossible. The Commissioner comes from a family of respected public servants from Negros. We should give her a lot of credit from preventing the party list system from further being basterdized!” Gatchalian tweeted.
