Guanzon earlier released a list of candidates who have illegal posters as of Feb. 14.
She later clarified that the list of campaign poster violators only covered those found in Metro Manila.
Guanzon also called out senatorial candidate Francis Tolentino over his huge billboard in Pasay City.
“I’m calling on the candidates especially candidate Tolentino whose billboard is still there in Pasay and I see that billboard every time I go to the airport.” / gsg
