President-elect Rodrigo Duterte was disgusted by the Liberal Party’s reported election manipulation even before the election took place last May 9, 2016. Physical evidences garnered by the Bihomadu group or the Binay, Honasan, Marcos and Duterte alliance pointed out a track where election returns passed through even before arriving at the Comelec’s transparency server. Lucena, Tarlac and Malacanang were the distinctive places recorded by I.T. investigators of the Binay Brigade.
Prior to the election, Duterte and Marcos’ camps were already warned that they were the main targets for massive cheating activities. They asked the public to be vigilant against any form of cheating upon knowing it. Unusual movement or mobilization that can lead to rigging the election results were detected especially in Cebu,
The cheating plans were becoming very obvious when Prospero De Vera questioned two Pulse Asia surveys conducted only two days apart but showed two different results. This coincided with outgoing President Aquino’s swearing on public TV that he will do everything to block Duterte and Marcos from winning the two top positions in the government.
