Jel Estrada sets the record straight on alleged involvement in barangay polls
This photo was pure coincidence, she explained. Vice Mayor Janella “Jel” Estrada has aired her side following reports that she allegedly intervened during the May 14 barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections in San Juan.
A viral photo circulating on Facebook showed Estrada’s campaign van driving behind an official vehicle which was carrying the ballots for Monday’s polls, which was taken by some to mean that she had a hand in them.
“Alam naman po ng lahat na bawal ako makialam sa barangay elections,” the young politiko said.
“Hindi po totoo na naghatid o nag convoy sa paghahatid ng balota sa Barangay Sta Lucia ang aking sasakyan. Hindi ko po ito pahihintulutan at hindi rin ito siyempre pahihintulutan ng COMELEC at ng taong bayan. Napadaan lang po ang aking sasakyan sa Sta. Lucia dahil nag pi-pick up at naghahatid po sila ng mga tents na pinahihiram ng aking tanggapan sa ating mga kababayan,” Estrada explained.
