Bongbong Marcos Appeals for SC’s Ruling
Do Not Sit on the Case
Bongbong Marcos accepts that Associate Justice stays as the magistrate in charge of his election protest against Leni Robredo. However, he appeals to please not sit on the case anymore. Marcos firmly asks Leonen to make a ruling at the soonest possible time.
Talks with the President
Marcos admits that he had talks with the president in private. He does not want to betray the Filipino leader’s trust. So, excuses himself not to divulge any topics during the discussions. However, it is up to the president if he choses to make their exchanges public.
Marcos also said that he has ongoing talks with different groups pertaining to the 2022 elections. He has major plans but he’ll wait and see for the right time to make some announcements or revelations. He honestly hopes that the SC ruling on his protest happens before the filing of his candidacy by October 2021.
