MANILA, Philippines – Vote-buying has long been a problem during elections in the Philippines. 

Everyone has heard of at least one allegation of vote-buying, either by local or national candidates. But do we know how can a transaction be counted as vote-buying?

In his piece, Marañon said that the “crime of vote-buying is the most misunderstood and therefore committed most often” and it does not only involved money or cold cash for a transaction to count under this offense.
