Bongbong Marcos

Contrary to VP Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal’s press release that Marcos’ electoral protest is dismissible because he can’t make Robredo responsible for his “general” allegations of electoral frauds and irregularities, PET rules that the protest contains narrations of ultimate facts on such anomalies in the questionable clustered precincts. Marcos can now move on to prove his allegations in due time,” the PET discloses.

Deliberations on the Proofs Submitted

Since the Tribunal finds the protest sufficient in form and substance, the process can now move to the emphasis of the veracity of the Marcos’ allegations. Marcos must prove the accusations with concrete evidence. The protest gets theTribunal’s go signal to proceed and give the protestant the opportunity to prove his case according to the 2010 PET Rules.”




Questions on Certificates of Canvass

The tribunal also dismisses Robredo’s claim that Marcos improperly raises the authenticity and due execution of certificates of canvass (COCs). They are the basis for vote tallies for the vice presidential post. Robredo must contest the issue in a pre-proclamation case filed before Congress acting as the National Board of Canvassers or NBOC.




Disqualification of the Vice President

The Section 4, Article VII of the 1987 Constitution relative to Rule 13 of the 2010 PET Rules provides that the Tribunal shall be the sole judge of all elections contests relating to the election, returns, and disqualifications of the President or Vice President of the Philippines. The phrase ‘election, returns and qualifications’ refers to all matters affecting the validity of the contestee’s title. That includes questions in the validity, authenticity, and correctness of the COCs,” the tribunal explains.

Bongbong Marcos Pleased with the Development

Although the tribunal denies Marcos’ bid to set aside Robredo’s response to the poll protest due to its late response. PET records showed Robredo received the summons and election protest on August 3, 2016, and not on August 2 as stated by the vice president in her response to the protest. Robredo has until August 13, 2016 to file her answer; but since August 13, 2016 is a Saturday, the filing of verified answer and counter-protest on August 15, 2016 is timely. Marcos’ legal spokesman Victor Rodriguez announces that despite of that, Bongbong Marcos is pleased with the decision.

Is Bong Bong Marcos Presidentiable?


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

I idolized the late President Ferdinand Marcos same as I wanted to be like the late Ninoy Aquino – at least in his ability to handle public speaking and his journalistic skills. I was living in Thailand for 15 years and I was not in the country when President Marcos was ousted. When I came back for good in 2005, I began soul searching. I did not only research about my past but also about the personalities whom I looked up to. I got most of my reference materials from the Aquino museum in Tarlac for my research on Ninoy – but I was dismayed for the fact that he was using his media capabilities to rebel against the government despite not making a move to verify allegations. He was totally on the other side and believed only one-sided stories. So, I decided to look into the Marcos’ side. Believing that you can see how the parents were through the children, I was anxious to watch this video:

Is Bong Bong Marcos Presidentiable? I am not there yet to answer that question but I noted the following traits observed during the interview:

  • The late President Marcos never lost his temper
  • The Marcos children were protected from the traumatic experience during the Edsa revolution
  • Bong Bong Marcos is a wide reader – and he also read about the enemies of his father’s regime
  • There’s no sign of hatred in Bong Bong Marcos’s heart over the Aquino clan
  • Bong Bong Marcos is a logistic planner when he implemented improvements in his Ilocos territory
  • He is a fluent Tagalog speaker despite spending most of his young life abroad

The rest you can judge for yourself from the video. All I can say is – you can clearly see how knowledgeable Bong Bong Marcos is with what he is into, in contrast with President Noynoy Aquino’s CNN interview with Christiane Amanpour where he seems to be in limbo – answering the opposite on what is seen in the footage of the Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda aftermath. Your call!
