Rowena Guanzon Takes a Jab at Team Malakas

Team Malakas Gets a Jab from Rowena Guanzon

ROWENA GUANZON – The former Comelec commissioner criticized Team Malakas, the group of Rosmar Tan and Rendon Labador, who were declared persona non grata in Palawan.

“Sarap bumalik sa Coron lalo na’t hindi ka persona non grata,” Guanzon said in her post on X (formerly Twitter). “I love Coron!” she added in another post, which also included a photo of her in Coron.

“Rosmar issue: Sinong pinagmamalaki nyo mga “influencers daw” kayo. Unjust vexation na ang ginawa nyo sa staff ng mayor of Coron. Ang yabang nyo! Kala mo kung sino. Watch my tiktok Barda Queen,” added Guanzon, a former Commissioner of the Commission on Elections.

Rosmar Tan, Rendon Labador, and their Team Malakas have been officially declared persona non grata across Palawan province. This decision was recommended by first district board member Juan Antonio Alvarez during the Palawan Provincial Board’s regular session on Tuesday, June 18, 2024.

The declaration follows an incident where the group disrespected a Local Government Unit (LGU) employee in Coron. During a charity event, Rendon and his team confronted, pointed at, and yelled at Jho Trinidad, a female municipal employee, who had posted a negative comment about them on her personal Facebook page.

Alvarez detailed the incident in a video uploaded by The Palawan Times on Facebook. He explained that Team Malakas arrived at Coron’s coliseum to provide aid without prior coordination. Despite this, the LGU assisted them. However, Trinidad’s personal Facebook post expressing dissatisfaction with the distribution of aid led to the confrontation.

Team Malakas

Alvarez defended Trinidad, stating her post was her personal opinion and not an official stance of the Coron municipality. He criticized Team Malakas for their excessive reaction, which disrespected the entire Coron LGU and unfairly generalized the people of Coron as having a negative attitude.

Despite a public apology from Team Malakas on June 17, Alvarez emphasized it was insufficient and called for a lesson to be taught to the group. He proposed that the Provincial Board also declare Team Malakas persona non grata throughout Palawan, not just Coron.
