Ping: Ronald Cardema one of the clear examples why partylist system has become a joke
The party list system has become quite a joke, with Ronald Cardema and the Duterte Youth group among its most recent reasons, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Tuesday.
In a tweet, Lacson noted the questions surrounding Cardema’s actions including presiding over a meeting of the National Youth Commission even after filing his party-list bid.
“Ronald Cardema and the Duterte-youth party list are just two of many reasons why the party list system has become a joke,” he said (https://twitter.com/iampinglacson/status/1130743201839570950).
Cardema faces a probe from the Department of Justice for presiding over a meeting of the NYC after filing his substitution petition as first nominee of Duterte Youth.
Presidential spokesman Salvador Panelo said the Department of Justice has been ordered to determine the possible violations by Cardema.
The investigation will include allegations that Cardema used his position in NYC to promote the Duterte Youth party list, Panelo added.
On the eve of the May 13 elections, Cardema filed a petition for substitution as party list nominee of Duterte Youth, to replace his wife Ducielle Marie Suarez Cardema as the group’s first nominee.
