He will, however, abide by the Constitution and the relevant rules regarding the impeachment process,” he added. Bongbong Marcos’ election protest against VP Leni Robredo is about to start this October but such incidents can cause further delays.

[VIDEO]: Uumpisahan na ngayong Oktubre ang recount ng mga balota kaugnay nang protesta ni dating Senator Bongbong Marcos laban sa pagkapanalo ni Vice President Leni Robredo sa nakaraang eleksyon.
Pro-Administration Solons’ Counter Attack
The pro-administration lawmakers and social media practitioners’ democratic movements are counter-acting the government’s enemies. Most of them agree that the Du30-Marcos tandem can eventually stop any destabilization efforts. One move is evident. Cebu Representative Gwen Garcia insists that the election fiasco is a major allegation. The COMELEC Chair must not escape from that by just resigning.
Still Waiting for Recount Date
The COMELEC’s logistics, schedule and estimated costs relative to the Decryption and Printing of Ballot Images for Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental are not yet ready. Its compliance with the PET’s Show Cause Order by 18 September 2017 has been extended twice. The Supreme Court has yet to rule on the recount date which is dependent on the COMELEC’s progress.
Marcos manifests on his list of witnesses for Basilan, Lanao del Sur, and Maguindanao. He also identifies the corresponding clustered precincts of these witnesses as required. The Supreme Court, however, grants the decryption of the Secure Digital (SD) cards relative to the 751 pilot protested precincts of Francis Tolentino. His long list of witnesses is also ready.
Robredo Camp’s Election Reaction
Former Senator Marcos is still confident to finally get his post by the end of this year. VP Leni Robredo’s Camp doesn’t have any idea where Marcos gets his confidence. They refer to it as mind-conditioning efforts. They also claimed that the double impeachment cases against the COMELEC Chair and the Supreme Court Chief Justice are part of the plan to allegedly steal the Vice Presidency from VP Leni Robredo.
