Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos said that the 58 mayors in government’s narco-list have tainted the reputation of public servants.
Marcos said made the remark during a conference of the League of Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP).
But the Ilocos Norte politiko admitted there is still insufficient evidence against them.
Marcos explained that they cannot just be disqualified despite the allegations.
“This is a disgraceful and painful experience for any mayor indeed, even as Comelec declares that they cannot be disqualified from running for office next year given there is no conviction yet,” Marcos said.
