Comelec: Go violates no rulesPosted on
DAVAO CITY (March 9) — SENATORIAL candidate, Bong Go, violates no election rules in accompanying President Rodrigo Duterte wherever he goes even as the May 2019 elections draw near.
Comelec chairman Sheriff Abas in a television interview said as long as Go is not using government’s fund in tagging along the President then there is no problem.
Go has been accompanying the President around and explained that he has made a promise to President Duterte to attend to him at all times.
“Kung sunod man ako nang sunod, ito ay dahil sa pangako ko sa kanya, sa pamilya niya at sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa kanya. Hindi ito kawalan sa gobyerno dahil ginagawa ko ito sa personal ko na kapasidad. Walang pera ng gobyerno na nasayang at walang drug money na ginamit (I am following him because this is a promise – to him, to his family, and to all those who love him. The government is not losing anything because I am doing this in my personal capacity. No government fund is wasted, and no drug money is used),” Go said.
Go also reiterated that he has friends who support his campaign.
“Marami akong mga kaibigan na naniniwala sa aking ipinaglalaban at tumutulong sa akin na maghatid ng tulong sa ating mga kababayan na nabiktima ng sunog at iba pang uri ng trahedya (I have many friends who believe in what I am fighting for and help me in serving people who are victims of fire and other calamities),” he said.
Go has been working with the President since the time the latter was still the chief executive of Davao City.
