Last week, Garcia shared that a team will be launched, composed of several government agencies, to address vote-buying.

The task force’s establishment came after reports that politicians gave away money during campaign activities.

The Department of Justice and the National Bureau of Investigation meanwhile will assist the Comelec by probing allegations of vote-buying.
