Update that Cannot be Disclosed
Marcos expresses his regret of not being able to announce the update of the protest point blank. This is due to the gag order of the Supreme Court. What is evident is his confidence to get a favorable result and his trust that he can get justice after all the sacrifices.
Recount is for Immediate Completion
The hopeful son of a great leader former President Ferdinand Marcos confirms once again that the recount in the 3 pilot provinces is due for completion if it is not yet the case. He knows that his evidences are substantial. This is why he appeals for the technical examination of the ballots in the ARMM region. The Comelec itself finds that 80% of the voters there are fake.
Comments on the Narco List DisclosureThe namesake of the Marcos patriarch finds announcing the list of drug-related politicians proper in warning the people. Nevertheless, he also suggests caution in doing this especially during elections. He said that it can be used by corrupt officials in power to discredit or intimidate their opponents.
The Yellow is Fading
There is a big reason for Marcos’ strong confidence to winning the electoral protest. Circumstances favor him over the LP opponents. They are doing everything they can to prevent him from coming back. Even Kris Aquino has to defend her brother despite their current rift. It seems that Mar Roxas, another senatorial candidate is abandoning the LP ship. His manager blames his defeat to the former President Noynoy Aquino’s depicting him as a side-kick just like Batman and Robin.
The conflict between ex-Pnoy and Kris is about her 2018 social media post. She laments about “why it was so clear” to her that President Rodrigo Du30 won in the 2016 elections. Roxas came second to him. Kris also remains civil with Marcos. She interviewed him once and they even have mutual friends. They are both godparents of a friend’s child. Will it be another clear win for Bongbong Marcos? It must be for SC to take this long. The decision should not be questionable. Therefore, Filipinos especially the Marcos loyalists must be patient.
