The supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo used a twisted version of democracy on their motion for reconsideration after the Supreme Court rejected their bid to help Robredo pay her counter-protest payment balance against Bongbong Marcos. They deny Liberal Party’s involvement but their reasoning is in line with the undemocratic ways of the party.

[VIDEO]: The Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, rejects the petition of VP Leni Robredo’s supporters to help pay the remaining fee for the election protest filed against her.



Motion for Reconsideration

Supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo asked the Supreme Court that sits as PET recently to reconsider its earlier decision that dismiss their plea to accept their contribution for the payment of the balance for Robredo’s counter-protest. They support her bid to block Bongbong Marcos from the second highest office in the land – the very reason why she ran for the post.




Petitioners

The Piso Para Kay Leni is led by Museo Pambata chair Cristina Lim-Yuson. The other petitioners are former social welfare secretary Corazon “Dinky” Soliman, former human rights commissioner Paulynn Sicam, former Bases Conversion, and Development Authority board director Zorayda Amelia Alonzo, award-winning singer Celeste Legaspi-Gallardo and Ateneo de Manila University Press director Karina Bolasco. They are all anti-Marcos voters.



Denial of their Rights

The petitioners said the PET decision denies them of their right to protect their vote for Robredo. They allegedly have the legal standing to do so. Their proposal to pay to the PET directly is still a donation for Robredo. That is still against the law for public officials. They cannot accept donations regardless of the mode of payment.








Twisted Democracy

Likewise, they argued that considering the importance of the case, the Tribunal should also exercise sound discretion even if their motion for reconsideration is filed after the 10-day period from receipt of the order. Aside from the late filing, they are banking on the twisted democracy principle that the LPs are noted for. This is for selfish reasons to favor their own goal which is contrary to the general public’s interest.
