Maguindanao exec assails fake news

Large-scale disinformation in relation to the polls had started with Maguindanao Governor Bai Mariam Sangki-Mangudadatu claiming to be a victim of it.

Mangudadatu said on Sunday she has not joined Aksyon Demokratiko, the party headed by 2022 presidential aspirant Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

Aksyon Demokratiko’s campaign team earlier named a certain Bai Mariam Mangudadatu, a provincial governor aspirant, in its list of new members who took the oath before Moreno last week.

Still with UMP

“It is crystal clear that I, along with our political allies in the Province of Maguindanao, took an oath with the Nacionalista Party and our local political party dubbed as UMP or ‘Umpungan ng Magpamalasakit Party,’” the governor said in a statement.

“We have always been vocal of our support to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go and their allies all, of course, for the good of our constituents in the province and the rest of the country,” she said.

The Bai Mariam who is supporting the presidential bid of Domagoso maybe a namesake of the incumbent Maguindanao governor, party chair Ernest Ramel Jr said.

Aksyon woos Toto

Maguindanao Rep. Esmael “Toto” Mangudadatu, a relative in law of Sangki and rival for the Maguindanao gubernatorial post in next year’s elections, has yet to formally join Aksyon Demokratiko.

He was, however, present during the party’s 1 October oath taking to accompany his wife and 2 children who joined the party.

Rep. Mangudadatu’s 24-year-old wife Sharifa will run for Sultan Kudarat governor, challenging incumbent Governor Suharto Mangudadatu, Sangki-Mangudadatu’s husband.
