Bongbong Marcos’ loyalists are vigilant with the Supreme Court for the July 11 Preliminary Conference of his election protest against VP Leni Robredo. Despite the earthquake, Ilocos 6 case, and continues petitions from the Robredo camp, Marcos is more than ready with heaps of evidence in the alleged fraudulent activities of his opponent’s party.

3 Hearing Officers are Set
Marcos’ counsel George Erwin Garcia said that the designation of the three hearing commissioners by the Supreme Court “will better facilitate an orderly, simplified and expeditious disposition of the electoral protest. This is a good move from the SC contrary to the many criticisms via the social media.
Automated Election is First
The first part of the Marcos petition is on the Automated Election System. The vote counting machines supplied by Smartmatic have not “demonstrated capability” nor were they ever had successful use prior to the electoral exercise in the Philippines. The Comelec is in question here why they have contracted the latter in the first place.
Recount is Second
The second part of his petition consists of the “traditional” modes of cheating. Vote buying is one. Pre-shaded forms also exist. The threat to voters was real. Elections failure in some precincts as per the vast of evidence collected happened. Marcos did not directly accuse Robredo of cheating. She is a mere beneficiary of such election anomalies. These are the reasons for the recount.
No more Alibi
Marcos supporters initiate Facebook group chats that can update each other of the progress of the Preliminary Conference happening soon. This is quite a bomb waiting to explode if the Supreme Court would once again tolerate Robredo’s delaying tactics. May there be no stopping Bongbong Marcos’ quest anymore for the progress of the nation.
