MANILA, Philippines — Partido Reporma spokesperson Ashley Acedillo on Sunday warned of a misinformation campaign alleging that Senator Panfilo Lacson “has or is withdrawing his candidacy” for president in the 2022 polls.

“Nothing could be further from the truth. On the contrary, the Lacson-Sotto tandem has been full speed ahead and has only been growing from strength to strength,” Acedillo said in a statement.

“As the filing of candidacies nears, so is the desperation of the ill-prepared, tentative, or the unwilling candidates. And this latest misinformation campaign just proves that,” he added.

Lacson, who sits as the chairman of Partido Reporma, and his running mate Senate President Vicente Sotto III have been laying the groundwork since they launched their candidacies on September 8, Acedillo said.

He claimed that they are the “most prepared and the most capable” to lead the country among those running for president and vice president.

Acedillo likewise said that the tandem and their respective parties “have already mobilized the combined strength of their alliance to secure their bases of support,” noting that the latest Partido Reporma event in Davao del Norte had over 200 party members taking their oaths of membership and showed support to Lacson and Sotto.
