Supreme Court





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Some Supreme Court justices are worried that the entire 2016 election’s integrity of the entire election process could be in question should the first part of Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest is addressed accordingly.

No Template

The concern was discussed during the preliminary conference last July 11. Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno expresses her apprehension about the absence of “a template” to address the kind of protest that Bongbong Marcos brings to the court. This is the first time the SC faces such a protest.




First Course of Action

The “ first course of action” among the three that Marcos lodge is where he urges the PET to “declare as unauthentic” all the certificates of canvass used by both chambers of Congress in proclaiming Robredo as the winner. He disputes the slim margin of more than 200,000 votes against the millions of undervotes.




Consequence

Associate Justice Marvic Leonen asks Marcos; “If you were to succeed in proving the first cause of action, wouldn’t that put into question the results of the elections of everybody else, both national and local,” said Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa. “Are you sure that this country is willing to face the consequences of a decision in your favor?” Marcos’ spokesperson Vic Rodriguez explains later that their complaint is specific to the Vice Presidential race as evidence shows irregularities against Marcos.









Recount is Second

The second part of the Marcos petition is the “traditional” modes of cheating. Vote-buying, pre-shading, intimidation and failure of elections, among others. This is where the recount belongs. Marcos already identified the priority areas for it; Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. As far as the integrity of the 2016 election is concerned, even the President knows that it was a dirty election. In fact, Cebu’s ex-Mayor Michael Rama has the same protest against Mayor Tomas Osmena. Anyhow, if the recount can resolve the VP race conflict faster, then be it.

    Are the 2 justices scared of their own shadow? blame the yellows of the mess of their own own making BROUGHT ABOUT BY AQUINO’S WISH TO THWART BBM. if the SC justices are worried about the integrity of the entire election process SO BE IT IT’S NOT BBM’s fault. does the SC wants BBM to sacrifice when they could see for themselves what kind of a vp is installed by the yellows…SO INCOMPETENT?

    1. these 2 justices are afraid of the TRUTH?

  2. i guess the SC is worried coz they know for themselves that cheating had occurred last election. that i guess is the reason why she is quiet these days. she must be worrying now especially she will loss a big chunk of her millions if BBM wins
    .

  3. To the honorable SC justices please don’t condition the mind of the people that it would affect electoral votes from local to national election were just talking of the Vice Presidential election that’s it.

  4. Are you worried coz you are thinking of a ripple effect? Hey guys you are only after the vice presidential election result and nobody among the majority of the voting population even think that this might overblown into a great proportion.

  5. Palusot mga judges?…how can affect the entire election 2016 …kng vp race lng nman kini question ni bbm?….are u trying to hide something?….give us the truth no matter wat the outcome is…dats all…

  6. Why should the Supreme Court worry? Whatever is the consequence, let it be? Let the truth come out no matter who gets hurt. Then prosecute those who are responsible. Or is that “worry” a prelude to an SC decision against BBM? Or are we ready to institutionalize cheating just to stay “safe” justices Sereno, Caguioa, Leonen?

  7. To the two justices Marivic Leonen and Caguioa who were afraid of losing the integrity of 2016 elections
    Well,thats not VP BBMs problem because as far as we concern here BBM protest is only for VP race and not for the other races
    Let the people know who really won the VP race during the 2016 May Poll
    And avoid conditioning our minds that BBMs protest will ruin the integrity of COMELEC
    We only want to see the truth

    1. That’s precisely correct..

  8. People are asking where their votes to BBM is gone… and besides, it is the VP race results that people want to know. Not other posts. Just do it now… the recount.

  9. Yes, why worry too much? Are those 2 justices saying that, if ever BBM was able to prove that there’s massive cheating on VP race election, BBM must already stop, keep silent about it and give way to Leni just to preserve the integrity of the result of election? Even if BBM stops questioning, you cannot stop the people’s clamor of truth. We want to know the truth. We want to know who really won the VP race.

  10. The sages of old said that “the truth will set you free”. So, why should you worry if the search for truth ruins those who perpetrated the falsehood and/or benefited from it. That the search for truth may affect the entire electoral process is no reason to suppress the truth, is it? If it is, then let us forget about elections and democracy.

  11. Come on Supreme Court we are waiting for you so long, we are so patience waiting for so long. What are you waiting for. Just do your job to scale the bad and the truth that’s what you are paid for. Just eat your food on your plate don’t worry others food on their plate. We want recount now. The whole world is waiting for you guys. Are you showing that you are cheaters too .
