On Wednesday, a Department of Energy (DOE) official denied Senator Pacquiao’s corruption accusation against the agency.

Over the weekend, Senator Pacquiao questioned why the Department of Energy awarded a contract to the Independent Electricity Market Operator of the Philippines (IEMOP) without any bidding, but he didn’t elaborate about it.

IEMOP operated the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market — a venue for trading electricity as a commodity in the Philippines. It was constituted by the Department of Energy, in accordance with the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA).

In a Laging Handa briefing on Wednesday, Energy Assistant Secretary Gerardo Erguiza, Jr. said that it seemed that Senator Pacquiao was a bit “ill-advised” on the said matter and the allegation lacked research.

Medyo ill-advised po yata dito si Senator Pacquiao at nagkulang ng research dahil wala pong ganyan na pangyayari dito,” Erguiza said.

Earlier, Senator Pacquiao said that he will be filing a resolution encouraging the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee to investigate corruption in several government agencies — including the Department of Energy.

Erguiza welcomed the possible investigation, saying that they will provide any document that will be asked of them to show the truth.

Handa po kami na humarap. Kung ano ang hanapin nilang dokumento…ilalabas namin para patunayan po kung ano ang katotohanan,” Erguiza said.
