Bongbong Marcos through his lawyer, Atty. Vic Rodriguez said that they respect the PET’s ruling on their alleged protest gag ruling violation. They are in full compliance. However, for his part, he explained that he was merely making “observations” and not “prejudgments” on the case.  This is his manifestation in his compliance document.

Marcos’ Observations

The former senator insisted that his claims of wet ballots and “missing” audit logs reported by media on the first day of the recount were “limited to his personal observation of what transpired during the revision.” “To be sure, the legal counsels of the protestant repeatedly requested that the Adhoc Revision Committee of this Honorable Tribunal to issue media advisories in connection with the ongoing proceedings so that they will not be forced to grant an interview in order to clarify the developments in this election protest,” he added.




Electoral Protest Update

Marcos accuses Robredo of committing electoral fraud to win the vice presidency in the 2016 national elections. Recount on his poll protest started on April 2 and is currently ongoing at the Supreme Court compound in Manila.




Robredo’s Denial

Robredo, through her legal counsel Romulo Macalintal, filed their compliance on the show cause order on April. They maintained that her camp has not “given sensitive information” to the public on the ongoing vote recount. The vice president’s camp also argued that they were merely “correcting” misinformation spread by Marcos’ camp, citing the former senator’s statement that there were wet ballots and missing audit logs discovered on April 2, the first day of the recount.









Protest Gag Ruling vs. Transparency

The PET reminded the two parties that they had earlier been ordered to “strictly observe” the sub judice rule in a resolution dated February 13. The directive was reiterated in another resolution on March 20. However, the people need transparency on this issue. Given that this is a top public interest at this time.

  1. I think PET should hurry up what they are doing and inform the public of the progress of the of the recount/ revision to avoid violating the ‘sub ‘judice rule’. The people wants to know of the result/outcome of it. It’s nearly 3 years and we still don’t know who won. robredo’s camp should be stopped in their delaying tactics.

  2. Why don’t PET consider releasing updates on the recount rather than imposing gag orders on both parties? This way, people are not being fed with fake updates as always blamed by stupid Macalintal to BBM’s camp.Though it’s very clear to many that indeed there was cheating ,Macalintal is trying his best to sow confusion to dissuade the public and make BBM the liar! What a very desperate move! #BBMtheREALVP✌
