Former mayor Monico Puentevella of Bacolod City denied attempting to gatecrash the campaign rally of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) in Victorias City last week.

This, after former councilor Bobby Rojas claimed in The Daily Guardian report that Puentevella tried to gatecrash the PDP-Laban event.

The ex-politiko claimed he was playing tennis in Bacolod City during the rally.

“I will not go unless I was invited. When I go to Malacañang I make sure that my name is there,” Puentevella said, adding he never received any invitation from the party or from Duterte to join them in the event.

Rojas earlier said the Office of the President was instructed not to allow the former mayor to enter the coliseum where the rally was held.
