Alleged Agusan police FB pages MISLEAD with post on NDF-backed 'party-lists'
A day before the elections, at least two FB accounts supposedly associated with Agusan del Norte police published several online posts wrongly tagging a number of Leftist groups as “party-lists” supported by the National Democratic Front.
The posts, which mirror a story VERA Files Fact Check debunked in February, dissuade readers from voting for 14 groups. However, more than half of those named were either not running, or were not party-lists at all.
Only Kabataan Partylist, Bayan Muna, Anakpawis Party-list, ACT Teachers Party-list, and GABRIELA Women’s Party are included in Commission of Elections’ official list of party list candidates.
Migrante, Katribu, Kalikasan and Courage were previously disqualified from running, while the rest of the organizations were not party-lists groups.
