MANILA, Philippines — Ronald Cardema accused on Saturday Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon of “playing the victim” in a death threat that is being blamed coming from the Duterte Youth.

“Pinapalabas niya [Guanzon] na siya ang biktima. [Pero sa totoo] kami sa Duterte Youth ang biktima,” Cardema said.


He also denied being behind the threats to the life of the Comelec commissioner.

“‘Yung mga threats napaka-imposible nun, hawak kami sa leeg ng ilang buwan. Hindi namin sila inaaway,” Cardema said in a press conference in Eton Centris Elements Tent in Quezon City.


Guanzon previously challenged Cardema to prove he is not behind the death threats launched against her and her family.
