Grab Philippines clarified on Saturday, February 2 that it does not support any kind of political advertisement in their driver-partners’ vehicles.
“Grab is a non-partisan company and does not in any way support this form of political promotion,” said Grab Philippines public affairs head Leo Gonzales.
“While we respect our driver-partners’ political preferences, we reserve the right to take corresponding actions to any violation of our company policies,” he added.
The company’s statement came after it received a number of reports that some of its driver-partners’ vehicles have political advertisements promoting candidates for the upcoming elections.
“We request the public to reach out to us for any sightings of these vehicles. You may reach us at our hotline 02 883 7107,” Gonzales said.
