Share TweetBy Genalyn KabilingMalacañang has challenged a local government executive in Cotabato City to file a complaint against groups allegedly engaged in vote-buying and intimidation during the plebiscite on the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL). Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo assured that an investigation into the matter would be conducted once Cotabato City Mayor Cynthia Guiani-Sayadi presents evidence to support her allegations doubting the credibility of the vote. “If she has evidence to back up her claim then file the appropriate charges against whosoever she felt has violated election laws,” Panelo said during a Palace press briefing. The MILF, which is expected to dominate the Bangsamoro Transition Authority until new regional leaders are elected in 2022, has denied the allegation.
