MANILA, Philippines- Nakatakdang ilunsad ang “interagency team” na binubuo ng ilang ahensya ng gobyerno na magbabantay laban sa vote buying, ayon kay Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner George Garcia said on Friday.

Ani Garcia, ilulunsad ang interagency team a tinawag na “Kontra Bigay” sa halip na ang inisyal na plano ng poll body na anti-vote-buying task force.

“Re: task force vote buying. We will instead make it an  interagency team that will involve several agencies,” pahayag ni Garcia.

Bubuuin ang interagency team ng Comelec, Department of Justice, Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission, Department of Interior and Local Government, Philippine Information Agency, National Bureau of Investigation, Philippine National Police, at Armed Forces of the Philippines, ayon kay Garcia.

“Hopefully to be activated by the Comelec en banc and constituted by next week,” sabi ni Garcia.

Ang pagbuo sa interagency team ay kasunod ng mga ulat ukol sa mga politiko na namimigay ng pera sa campaign activities.

“Because of this broad coordinative efforts, immediate actions motu proprio or based on formal  complaints  involving vote buying  are expected,” pahayag ni Garcia. “As we have said before, our commitment in eliminating this irregularity is unparalleled.” RNT/SA
