‘TACTICS’ | Guanzon denies extortion allegation, tells Cardema to get a good lawyer

August 18, 2019 – Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon has denied all allegations raised by former National Youth Commission chair Ronald Cardema during a press conference in Quezon City on Saturday.

The Duterte Youth chairman who is gunning for a congressional seat accused Guanzon of asking favors in exchange for the party-list’s accreditation.

In a series of tweets, the polling executive has denied extortion allegation saying she will not inhibit from Cardema’s case.

“I will not inhibit from the cases of Cardema. Period.” she expressed.

“Cardema held a presscon accusing me of demanding a favor in exchange for registration of his PL. wey???! Didn’t I vote yes to the registration of his PL? how come no Judge related to me was appointed?” she added.

The COMELEC executive said that Cardema’s allegations are just “intimidation tactics” to coerce her and reverse her vote, maintaining that the latter is overraged which resulted to the cancellation of his nomination as the party’s first nominee.

“Again, friendly advise, study your case and get a good lawyer. But u can’t change your date of birth,” she said in another tweet.

Guanzon also maintained that she did not ask money from Cardema as she is “richer” than him.

“Why will I extort money from him or anyone? I don’t need it. I am richer than Cardema for sure,” she said in a latest tweet.

In August 5, the COMELEC First Division cancelled the nomination of Cardema as Duterte Youth party-list representative.
