The Department of Education (DepEd) on Sunday urged presidential candidate Sen. Manny Pacquiao to name the DepEd official whom he claimed to be corrupt and get a 40-percent commission of the project cost instead of “putting down” the entire institution.

During a forum on Friday, Pacquiao alleged that the deteriorating quality of education in the Philippines was due to the mishandling of DepEd’s allocated budget.

“I am just not speaking but I am well-aware of what’s happening in there … I don’t want to reveal it now [but] when the time comes, I already know how to investigate and correct,” he said.

“I even know someone who does not allow a kickback of less than 40 percent,” Pacquiao added.

In response, the DepEd in a statement said that alleging wrongdoing unsupported by specific facts was “tantamount to false accusation.”
