[VIDEO]: MANILA – Vice President Leni Robredo on Tuesday paid an P8-million cash deposit as initial installment for her counter-protest to former Senator Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos’ challenge to her May 2016 electoral victory.
The Same Piso for Leni Petitioners
The petitioners are the same as the Piso for Leni Movement. They are former social welfare secretary Corazon Soliman, former human rights commissioner Paulynn Sicam, former Bases Conversion, and Development Authority board director Zorayda Amelia Alonzo, award-winning singer Celeste Legaspi-Gallardo, Ateneo de Manila University Press director Karina Bolasco, and Museong Pambata founder Nina Lim-Yuson.
Response to Robredo’s Whining
Robredo’s supporters made this effort after her constant whining on Bongbong Marcos’ convenience in paying large sums of money for the electoral protest to finally start and get it over with. She even went as far as picking up trash for her daughter’s Harvard school supplies in Boston.
Testing the Supreme Court
The group obviously aims to test the Supreme Court’s fairness on Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo. Since the SC displays its democratic ways in dealing with the Ilocos 6 case of Bongbong Marcos’ sister, Imee Marcos plus its Martial Law approval, they are concerned that the ruling on the election protest would be favorable to Marcos.
Before the Preliminary Conference
Days before the preliminary conference of Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo, their detractors seem to lay low a bit. Since the Supreme Court already vows to fight back the abuses of the Congress, the executive office can’t ignore this. Could it be that the President already intervenes to prevent constitutional crises?
