According to Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales, corruption is still very prevalent in government with thousands of new cases being filed against officials, mostly from the local government units (LGUs) like mayors, governors, and kagawads. Another big chunk of the pie are cases involving police officers.
“My only appeal is that people should vote [for] people with integrity [in the] local and national level. It’s not enough to be smart and competent. You (candidate) should have integrity. That’s my appeal,” Morales said.
