MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang on Tueday said it respects the decision of the Commission on Elections (Comelec) approving the petition for substitution of former National Youth Commission (NYC) chairman Ronald Cardema as Duterte Youth party-list nominee.

“We do not intrude nor interfere into the proceedings of any branch of the government or any constitutional body,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a text message to reporters.
