The Commission on Administrative Justice has advised public officers against engaging in campaigns and using state resources.

In an advisory opinion the Ombudsman states that the act should further lead to complete disqualification of the candidate and the party they support.

Public officers engaged in campaigns and using state resources to do so are breaking the law and should lead to disqualification of the party and the candidate they support, the Ombudsman has said.
