Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Bernadette Sardillo said SC Associate Justice Marvic Leonen points out that Marcos’ question on the integrity of the entire automated election system may pose consequences. Sardillo said that Marcos cannot “surgically remove” the results of the VP race from other positions. If Robredo a product of a fraudulent election, President Du30 is too.

Sardillo explained that the canvassing in Congress only has one certificate of canvass for President and Vice President. So if that certificate of canvass was fraudulent and cannot be trusted, that means the President is also affected and his post should be vacated.
Robredo’s Hairline Lead
Perhaps, Sardillo forgot that Robredo won with only 263,473 votes lead over Marcos. That discrepancy can easily be justified if the disputed ARMM votes in Basilan, Maguindanao and Lanao del Sur are annulled. She garnered a total of 477,985 votes, compared to Marcos’ 169,160 votes in that area. Aside from that, Marcos is even confident that the hairline margin can also be disputed quickly right after the recount in his 3 pilot provinces namely; Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. No one can even question PDu30’s over 5 million leads to Mar Roxas.
Next Step after Prelim
Marcos’ lead counsel George Garcia said that the Supreme Court gave them a guide on the proceedings of the case. Both camps have to answer in 5 working days. “That will happen by next week. Then hopefully, the collection of ballots can happen by the middle of August. That takes the entire August. Perhaps, we can start the revision by September,” Garcia said.
5 M vs 100 K Lead
Most Filipinos know that no one can contest Du30’s over 5 million votes lead over Mar Roxas. This is not the case with Robredo’s over 100 K lead over Marcos. No matter how the digital fraud was done, the large gap is not just possible to corrupt the way it was observed during the election night. The trend of the voting report transmissions changed drastically in favor of Robredo. That was when people fell asleep during the wee hours. Only to be shocked in horror first thing in the morning.
