MANILA, Philippines — Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon gave fellow Commissioner Aimee Ferolino until Monday to release the resolution on the consolidated disqualification cases against presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

Guanzon said she will not reveal the name of the “influential and powerful” senator suspected to be behind the delay in the release if the resolution is issued on Monday.

Guanzon is the presiding commissioner of the Comelec’s First Division, which is handling the disqualification cases against Marcos Jr.

“Binibigyan ko lang sila hanggang Monday. Ilabas ninyo ang resolusyon, hindi ko ilalabas pangalan. Ilabas niyo lang,” Guanzon said when asked in a DWIZ interview about the identity of the senator.

Guanzon earlier said the senator she was referring to was not Marcos Jr.’s sister, Senator Imee Marcos.

Guanzon is set to retire on Wednesday, February 2, after serving seven years as a member of the Comelec.

She said she will not retire quietly.

“I am not going to retire quietly, kasi may problema tayo eh (because we have a problem),” the Comelec official said.

“Anong kababalaghan ba ito at 19 days [hindi pa released]? Sobra nang abnormal ang delay na ‘yan. Kaya ako nananawagan sa publiko at sa kanya (Ferolino) na ilabas na niya bago ako magretire. Kung hindi, talagang totoo ang sinasabi ko na may conspiracy para hindi macount ang boto ko which is to DQ (disqualify) BBM (Marcos Jr.’s initials). Ayaw nilang ma-DQ si BBM,” she added.

(What is happening? The decision is still not released after 19 days. This delay is too abnormal. That’s why I called on her to release the resolution before I retire. If not, my statement that there is conspiracy so that my vote will not be counted to disqualify BBM is true. They don’t want BBM to be disqualified.)
