The Commission on Elections welcomes a possible legal challenge to its new guidelines on social media campaigns. 

Election lawyer George Garcia is questioning the poll body's ability to monitor candidates' online campaign expenses and punish those spending beyond the legal limit. 

Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez, however, said the regulation on social media campaign spending is covered by the current law. - The World Tonight, ANC, February 13, 2019
