Ilocos Sur gubernatorial bet files case vs Singsons for alleged vote-buying

The Liberal Party candidate for Ilocos Sur governor filed Monday separate complaints for disqualification and vote-buying against rival Ryan Luis Singson and 6 others.

 The complaint stems from an alleged incident of vote-buying last April 21 where the candidates, which included Ronald Singson, supposedly handed out cash to voters in a barangay fiesta in Sto Domingo town.

Versoza accused them of giving at least P20,000 during the fiesta event which he said made it “more like a partisan political activity.”

“Sto. Domingo, Ilocos Sur local officials headed by incumbent mayor and re-electionist Lito Tadena gave consolation prizes. Each of them were allotted time to say a message to the audience making the fiesta event more like a partisan political activity,” he said.

The prizes were raffled off during the event which was the grand finals of a talent search contest held last April 22, 2013 in Barangay (village) Nalasin.

He also gave to the Comelec a video recording during the said event.
