Bongbong Marcos clearly pinpoints Supreme Court Associate Justice Benjamin Caguioa, the magistrate in charge of his election protest before the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), for obvious biases against him. However, Vice President Leni Robredo discredits the whole institution by urging it to give her a fair fight on air. She wants the 25% COMELEC’s threshold guide for the recount instead of the PET’s 5o% ruling. She banks on her motion for reconsideration on this matter that Marcos detests since he knows that most of her votes are from the PCOS machine. Isn’t she the one who said that her opponent has supporters who are not real people? The PET made its decision after various anomalies are found during the recount of Camarines Sur’s ballots, her bailiwick.

The Supreme Court to Give Robredo a Fair Fight?
Robredo recently asks the Tribunal to reverse its earlier ruling that rejects her appeal to apply the 25 percent threshold for the ongoing vote recount. With her are legal counsels Romulo Macalintal and Bernadette Sardillo. They personally troop to the Supreme Court, that sits as the PET. This is to file the motion for reconsideration. The VP addresses her supporters outside the SC compound where she urges the PET to give her a fair fight.
Cheated her Way to the OVP
Lawyer Vic Rodriguez, spokesperson of Marcos, in a statement, said that the vice president should stop “casting aspersions meant to debase [the Presidential Electoral Tribunal’s] integrity.” “Robredo cheated her way to the vice presidency and in this [ongoing] manual recount and judicial revision, she is attempting to cheat the Filipino people again by trying to change the rules in the middle of the game,” the lawyer added.
Marcos’ Number of Voters Remains the Same at 50%
Barangay Laganac, Municipality of Balatan, Camarines Sur where Robredo got 358 votes are in Robredo’s plea. Upon the application of the 50 percent threshold, the physical recount on the ballot yielded 346 votes for the vice president. Votes for Marcos did not change in the tally. “[I]n simple terms, the votes for the VP decreases by 12 votes while the votes for Marcos remains the same,” the motion reads.
Whose Voters are NOT Real People?
Criticize Bongbong Marcos and your friend would either fight with you or unfriend you via Facebook. Whereas, Robredo’s online presence is seldom felt. Aside from the many Filipinos who are in shame every time she speaks in front of an international audience, most online defenders of the unpopular VP seem to be incognito or trolls as she describes them.
