Retired Comelec Commissioner Mocks PWDs!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She claims to be an advocate for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs), complete with a giant billboard proclaiming her support for a PWD party-list in the coming Philippine elections. Yet retired Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon is all but promoting a mockery of handicapped people.

In a post on her Twitter account, Guanzon is asking her followers to post selfies mimicking facial paralysis (“ngiwi” in Tagalog) and to use the hasghtags #ngiwisquad and #ngiwichallenge.

THE FACTS: Many people suffer from facial paralysis, a disability. Such paralysis could be caused by stroke, Bell’s palsy, trauma, tumors, viruses and Lyme Disease.

Is Guanzon going to publicly apologize to the very people she’s advocating for?
