3 Months Not Enough for Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest Conclusion


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Leni Robredo’s lawyers Bernadette Sardillo and Romulo Macalintal are unanimous in believing that Bongbong Marcos election protest will not finish in 2 to 3 months. Nobody ever said so. What the Marcos camp said that by October, the recount of the 3 pilot provinces can already determine if it must do the same process to the rest of the precincts or not.

Motions and Retrieval

Sardillo explains that there are lots of motions filed and the retrieval of the ballot boxes takes time. She asked; How can it be done in such a short time? This is the reason why the Supreme Court sets aside all motions and give priority to the recount. It is the High Court’s best interest to give this a speedy treatment because this is one case that is unique among the previous protests.

Easy to Surpass Slim Margin

Robredo won by a very slim margin of 263,473 votes over Marcos.Marcos’ camp wants the PET to recount first the ballot boxes in Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. Once the slim lead of Robredo is overshadowed, a further recount might not be necessary anymore. They are confident that in the 3 pilot provinces alone, Marcos can already have around 1 M lead.

Supreme Court Preparations

The Marcos camp appreciates the preparations made by the Supreme Court for the recount itself. PET’s proposed venue is the basketball court inside the Court of Appeals for the retrieval of the ballot boxes. The SC displays its sincere intention that they want the protest to be concluded fast. They only asked for understanding for the delays incurred because it’s the first case for its nature.

Caught in the Mouth

Robredo’s lawyers are obviously caught through their own mouth. They deliberately submit various motions and resolution to possibly drag the case longer. They just cannot believe that the Supreme Court can ignore them and proceed to the recount instead after the submission of their priorities as per the guidelines it provided.

  1. Robredo’s lawyers are crumbling they don’t know what to do ! They’re like rats that are succumb to death … soon the big lie in the history of Philippine electoral process will be enlightened …

  2. The truth will prevail as the common saying goes. Soon enough, the Filipino people will find truth in the coming electoral protest of Bongbong Marcos who was the people’s choice last Election Day.
