Former Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon has filed an administrative complaint against National Youth Commission chief Ronald Cardema for allegedly maligning her through the social media.
In her 19-page complaint, Guanzon wanted Cardema to indemnify her P8 million in damages for supposed violation of the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees or Republic Act 6713.
Guanzon charged that Cardema repeatedly “unjustly” attacked her on Facebook posts. Cardema claimed Comelec employees were afraid of Guanzon, and that she hindered the proclamation of winning P3PWD party-list nominees.
Moreover, he said, Guanzon was suffering from karma for denying his bid to sit as representative of the Duterte Youth party-list in the House of Representatives.
Cardema also said he was not afraid of Guanzon’s wrath, adding she could never sit in Congress, and accused her of conspiracy with other P3PWD party-list nominees so she herself could sit as a party-list representative.
