MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The rift between Andy Bautista and Rowena Guanzon is no secret. The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) chair and the lady Commissioner have been trading barbs at each other for some time now.
With the recent allegation of Bautista’s unexplained wealth, Guanzon who many suspect is aiming at the COMELEC top post, had a frank conversation with her boss.
The Adobo Chronicles obtained a full transcript of their conversation:
GUANZON: This really affects all of us.
BAUTISTA: What do you mean?
GUANZON: The allegations against you are very serious and it reflects badly on the entire COMELEC.
BAUTISTA: So what do you suggest I do?
GUANZON: You should take a leave. Better still, you should step down.
