MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) said on Wednesday that it is still verifying if any law was broken regarding the candidacy of Bamban, Tarlac Mayor Alice Guo.

Guo’s citizenship came into question after she failed to provide details about her birth and schooling when she was grilled during a Senate hearing by Senator Risa Hontiveros. 


“Patuloy naman po namin tinititingnan kung mayroon mang nalabag sa batas. Hinihintay din po naming kung mayrong magsampa ng kasong election offense at makaka-asa po kayo, kung mayroon magfi-file ng verified complaint, ito naman ay agad na diringin ng Comelec at susulong ang ating tinatawag na preliminary investigation,” said Comelec Spokesperson John Rex Laudianco at the Bagong Pilipinas Ngayon Public Briefing.


(We are checking if any laws were breached. We are also waiting to see if someone will file an election offense case, and you can bet that if someone files a verified complaint, the Comelec will process it, and a preliminary investigation could commence.) 

Guo is suspected of being a Chinese asset meant to infiltrate the Philippine government. 

The suspicions grow deeper as Hontiveros suspects Guo of being tied to Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators.
