MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) will form a task force to investigate reports of vote-buying, Commissioner George Garcia said Wednesday.

“Bubuo ang komisyon ng task force para sa lahat ng ganyang complaints, reports, and whatever. Magkakaroon tayo ng task force para mas mabilis ang kilos sa atin,” the Comelec official said in a press briefing at a hotel in Manila.
