Not So Fast, COMELEC Chair Andy Bautista Says Of His Resignation

A6BD07CC-EEFF-4B73-BF99-389E7DE94D9CMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – While many saw it coming, others were shocked at the resignation today of Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Chair Andy Bautista.

Bautista has been accused of having unexplained wealth by no less than his wife Patricia.  

Bautista’s resignation came in the form of a letter addressed to his  COMELEC family and first reported by GMA News. A screen shot of the letter immediately went viral, showing Bautista’s intent to step down by the end of the year.

But in an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, he said his letter was “edited,” saying the signed original indicated his resignation by the end of the year 2022.  He provided us a copy of the original (see photo.)

So it looks like Bautista’s resignation is really a non-resignation, at least until 2022.
