Kabayan party-list Rep. Harry Roque said the impeachment complaints will only waste the time of Congress instead of dealing with the most important Universal Health Care Act and Freedom of Information Act. Therefore, the Marcos loyalists are holding a rally today in front of the Supreme court to hopefully expedite the recount.

[VIDEO]: Rep. Roque binalaan si Alejano iimpeach nila si Leni kung ituloy ang impeachment sa pangulo.
Vice President Leni Robredo is facing impeachment for alleged betrayal of public trust after her United Nations sideline video that criticizes the president’s drug war. Roque said that the Du30 impeachment is bound to fail anyhow because more case building is needed for it to progress. So, it cannot be a concern right now.
Rights for Votes to be Counted
The Marcos Loyalist stages the Recount Rally today, 17 April 2017, 3PM, Supreme Court, Padre Faura St., Ermita, Manila. Assembly time for the Marcos corner is 1:00 PM. They demand that their votes must be counted – and start the recount without delay. This comes after the Holy Week resolution of the Supreme Court to collect deposits from Bongbong Marcos and Leni Robredo of more than P81 million worth of money.
Impeachment is Bad for the Country
Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada, who also faced impeachment when he was president, believes the impeachment complaints against Duterte and Robredo should not prosper because it will be bad for the country, particularly the economy. “This is the first time that the President and the Vice President are facing impeachment complaints. That will really delay the progress of our country. I hope it will not happen. Let’s pray it will not prosper,” he said.
Immediate Recount is Necessary
The Philippines remain divided if the Vice Presidential race is not sorted out as soon as possible. There is a growing hatred against Robredo that is seen in her declining approval rating. Marcos’ one year ban is also about to end after May 8 – and he can only assume a very important post very soon. Two clashing politicians in the government can only add to the already enormous strain of the country. There should only be one real Vice President. So, let the recount begin!
