Investigation underway into Alice Guo’s membership by NPC

The Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC) is currently investigating Bamban, Tarlac Mayor Alice Guo, who initially ran as an independent candidate but later joined the party. NPC chairman Vicente Sotto III revealed the probe during the Kapihan sa Manila Bay forum, stating that Guo became an NPC member after winning the 2022 elections. Sotto also called on Tarlac Gov. Susan Yap to look into Guo’s case for any party rules violations.

The controversy surrounding Guo deepened during a Senate investigation led by Sen. Risa Hontiveros. The hearing focused on discrepancies in Guo’s birth records and her alleged involvement in Philippine offshore gaming operators. Hontiveros presented conflicting details in Guo’s birth certificate compared to those of her siblings, highlighting issues with her parents’ marriage records.

Guo struggled to address the inconsistencies, claiming she did not handle the birth certificates and revealing complex family dynamics. Senators raised doubts about the existence of Guo’s mother and questioned her Filipino citizenship documentation. Despite Guo’s assertions of a challenging upbringing on a farm, senators pressed her for more details, prompting emotional responses from the mayor.

As the investigation unfolds, Guo’s origins and involvement in controversial activities continue to cast a shadow over her political career. The NPC’s alliance with President Marcos’ Partido Federal Pilipinas adds another layer of complexity to the situation, highlighting the intricate dynamics at play within the political landscape.
