Bongbong Marcos welcomes the ruling of the Supreme Court that acts as Presidential Electoral Tribunal. It denies with finality the bid of Vice President Leni Robredo to reverse its earlier ruling finding sufficiency in Marcos’ election protest. “This is already a denial of the motion for reconsideration,” Marcos’ counsel Atty. George Garcia said.

[VIDEO]: The Supreme Court that acts as the PET deems that the complaint of Bongbong Marcos over cheating in last year’s VP race has presented enough merit to be reviewed. The resolution reads, “The protest is only sufficient for the tribunal to proceed. It gives the Protestant the opportunity to prove his case in accordance with the 2010 PET rules.”



Retrieval of Ballots Ordered by the Supreme Court

Garcia said they are happy with the decision. That means the election protest could begin to roll especially with the PET’s order to retrieve the ballot boxes. Other election paraphernalia in three pilot provinces to start revision and recount are also included in the retrieval process. Marcos’ three pilot provinces are; Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental.




Robredo’s Motion Junked

In its Aug. 29, 2017, resolution, the PET said Robredo’s motion for reconsideration failed to raise new issues that would warrant a reversal of its earlier ruling. The PET said; “finally, it is well to stress that the Motion for Reconsideration essentially restates the arguments contained in Protestee’s Verified Answer and Counter-Protest, and these have already been duly considered and passed upon by the Tribunal in the Resolution dated January 24, 2017. The Tribunal finds no cogent reason to discuss these matters any further.”




SD Cards Decryption

It also grants the motion of Marcos to decrypt and print the ballot images from the SD cards. This is for the three pilot areas in order to help the Tribunal in the prompt disposition of the protest. It also assists the Protestant to prepare for the recount proceedings and the presentation of his evidence.









Recount Can Resolve the Issue Quickly

Atty. Garcia explained that while they want the PET to look into the anomalies on the implementation of the AES, they respect its ruling. They also appreciate its effort to expedite the proceedings. Recount is soon to follow right after the retrieval process.

  1. It won’t be long we will soon find out who the real vp is. the empty headed bimbo is so witless that the SC says their ‘arguments were merely rehashed’ with no new ideas that will negate BBM’s claims against her. so the SC junks her motion for reconsideration to dismiss BBM’s protest.
    If i were her to receive this kind of letter i will be embarrassed. The SC has proven that we are all right to call her DUMB that includes her lawyers with the only motivation is to DELAY the protest process.> I quote “[F]inally, it is well to stress that the Motion for Reconsideration essentially restates the arguments contained in protestee’s (Robredo’s) Verified Answer and Counter-Protest, and these have already been duly considered and passed upon by the Tribunal in the Resolution dated January 24, 2017. The Tribunal finds no cogent reason to discuss these matters any further.”
    The word cogent means ‘powerfully persuasive’ that means they were lazy or simply not intelligent enough to think of any possible reason that they can think of.

  2. People can’t wait any longer ! The country needs a firm ang a strong governance !
    it’s only BBM can support honest & productive leadership to PRRD’s administration !!!

  3. well sounds good to me,people are seeking tired of their gimmicks or stile delaying tactics they tried to manipulate everything but one thing for sure they will all suffer the consequences of sin they have committed . the truth is nothing to worry about coz we are in the right path.
