The fear of the Liberal Party for the come back of the Marcoses into the highest office of the country is not yet over. In fact, the real battle between the Aquinos and the Marcoses is just beginning. It’s heart-breaking to many Filipinos who are so confident that Senator Bongbong Marcos will easily bag the Vice Presidency but today’s news that Leni Robredo, the Liberal Party and administration bet officially won by only 263,473 votes against Senator Ferdinand Marcos or Bongbong as he is fondly called. Leni got in total of 14,418,817 votes and Bongbong, 14,155,344.
The outgoing administration capitalized the death of Jesse, the former interior secretary who died in a plane crash in 2012 – that’s why people are speculating if his death was really an accident or a plot to beat Marcos since the older Marcos was also taken over by another widow, Cory Aquino who was instilled as President after the Edsa revolution in 1986.
Evidences of massive election fraud however will be haunting the widow from pre-shaded ballots in her favor to clustered discrepancies of the COCs maneuvered through Smartmatic election automation. The win is actually expected since it will not differ too much from the unofficial results through the transparency server because they only have one source. However, the official canvassing can prove that there were indeed irregularities that coincide with physical evidences in questionable presincts through sworn in affidavits
