Cardema lawyer on Duterte Youth bid: He represents young professionals!
Abogado George Garcia appeared to represent former National Youth Commissioner Ronald Cardema in the Commission on Elections. The abogado prepared quite the defense for Cardema, noting that he did not wish to represent the youth this time.

Garcia noted that he sought to represent the young professionals’ sector instead. The abogado is clearly trying to steer away from the argument from the age limit on those who wish to represent a youth partylist.
Cardema is 4 years over the age limit set by law. However, the COMELEC continues to give due process to his substitution bid after Duterte Youth won a seat in Congress.
Galawang mandaraya much!
