MANILA - Social Welfare Secretary Dinky Soliman is asking the public to report politicians who will threaten to delist them from the government's conditional cash transfer program if they do not vote for certain candidates.

The social welfare chief said charges will be filed.

"Ang usapan namin sa Department of the Interior and Local Government, kung incumbent at nananakot na aalisin sila sa listahan, pwedeng mag-file ng administrative case against the incumbent for abuse of authority… Kung meron namang hindi incumbent na ginagawa po 'yung pananakot o kaya pagsabi ng isasama ko kayo sa Pantawid kung ako'y iboboto niyo, sa Commission on Elections (Comelec) naman po ang complaint," she said.
Reports or complaints may be texted to mobile phone number 09189122813, containing the politician concerned, the place and the date of the incident, and others who may be involved. The public may also report DSWD employees engaging in the unscrupulous activity.
