MANILA, Philippines — “Everybody lies,” Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP) leader Sara Duterte-Carpio on Wednesday said as she scoffed at opposition senatorial candidates who accuse pro-administration bets of telling lies.

“Ang sabi nila, the issue is not about [a] college degree but honesty. So ano gagawin natin sa kanila tulad nila (Gary) Alejano, nagsisinungaling — wala naman siyang proof na galing sa public funds ang T-shirt (ni Bong Go),” Duterte-Carpio said.

“They deliberately say false statements on stage about and against the administration of President Duterte. So lahat sila sinungaling. Lahat ng tao sa mundong ito, sinungaling (So they are all liers. Everybody lies,” she added.

Meanwhile, Ilocos Norte Governor and senatorial candidate Imee Marcos has come under fire over her school records at Princeton University and the University of the Philippines (UP) College of Law.

Marcos has been evading questions over her supposed law degrees since the educational institutions denied her claim. /ee
