By Minka Klaudia Tiangco

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) warned those who spread “malicious” rumors and allegations against the agency that they “will not go unpunished” for their actions.

The agency said in a statement that they have been continuously dispelling fake information and dealing with accusations of graft, corruption, and partisanship in both the National and Local elections.

“Undermining public confidence in the elections is an election offense,” they said. “Persons or parties engaging in cowardly and dishonorable acts of dishonesty that tend to erode public trust in the mechanisms and processes of democratic elections will be held accountable.”

The agency added that they will be coordinating with law enforcement agencies and will be pursuing “all available remedies to the fullest extent possible” to identify the ones behind the online attacks.

The Comelec also reminded the public to be cautious and not to easily believe things posted online that “clearly intend to undermine public trust and confidence in the Commission on Elections, as well as its Commissioners and officers.” #MatalinongBoto2019
