The camp of presidential candidate Sen. Panfilo Lacson has called on their adversaries and critics to “stop peddling lies” as the elections were in progress.
Lacson’s spokesman, Ashley Acedillo, maintained that his boss was still very much in the race.
“Even now, on election day, some parties have still not desisted from circulating fake news claiming independent presidential candidate Sen. Ping Lacson has withdrawn from the race,” Acedillo said.
“This is simply not true,” he stressed.
“Not only was Senator Lacson among the first of the presidential candidates to cast his vote this morning – which he did at Bayan Luma 1 Elementary School in his hometown of Imus, Cavite. He also settled into monitoring the events of today unfold through the Command Center of the Lacson Sotto Support Group,” Acedillo added.
“And that’s precisely how we were able to monitor this recent deplorable ploy in some areas in Bulacan,” he said.
