About 50 barangay officials and members of the Sanggunian Kabataan are facing complaints for partisan politics, the Department of the Interior and Local Government said Monday. 

The complaints were prompted by citizens' reports and documentary evidence that the officials were campaigning for some candidates, said Interior Undersecretary Martin Diño. 

Some of the officials removed the posters of a candidate they did not like and cut the power supply at a campaign sortie, he told radio DZMM. 

Diño said he has summoned the officials to his office and issued a show cause order for them to explain the accusations.
