Cesar Chavez fo DZRH Manila asks; Is the pilot provinces recount this April 2 enough to determine the winner of the 2016 Vice Presidential election? Bongbong Marcos answered; It depends on the number. April 2 marks the beginning of the recount but since there are 50 tables to be opened, it would take around 3 months if 100 precincts per day are met a day for the procedure.

Value of the Pilot Provinces
Considering that all things go smoothly, the 3 pilot provinces which are; Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental, the amount of the discrepancy is crucial in determining if the recount should continue. In short, it won’t stop there. Declaration of winners by then won’t happen yet.
Sufficiency of the Initial Recounts
Bongbong Marcos said that his electoral protest includes recount for 34,000 clustered precincts. The PET, however, rules that only 3 pilot provinces can serve as a determining factor if there is a basis for his electoral fraud accusation against his rival’s political party that can officiate such manipulation.
Father’s Legacy to Continue
The son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos aims to continue his protest to realize his father’s plan for the country. Quality education, agriculture, infrastructure, business opportunities, and better public services must be the priorities to augment the lives of the poor.
Relation to Senator Sotto’s Expose
The expose of Senator Tito Sotto might be in line with Bongbong Marcos’ protest but that touches the general integrity of both the local and national elections. Whereas, in his electoral protest, despite the massive indication of electoral sabotage, it remains exclusive to the VP post and nothing to do with other positions that may be affected by the results of the recount.
Mocha Uson, the President’ avid supporter, and MTRCB chair’s fighting spirit is admirable but her hate speeches against Leni Robredo did not sit well with broadcasting platforms both online and offline. Just in a month, she retreats from the Philippine Army’s Senior Leaders’ Conference or SLC, where she was supposed to be one of three resource speakers to discuss the role of social media in national security. It is followed by Twitter’s temporary block of her account and her suspension from her radio program on DZRH.

Mocha’s account was suspended on Twitter – at least temporarily. It was restored within the day. According to Twitter’s published rules, the common reasons for suspending an account include spam, risked account security, or abusive tweets or behavior from the user. Uson seems to be guilty on the third one calling Leni Robredo names and swearing at her.
Uson’s radio program on DZRH is also suspended after Jozy Acosta-Nisperos of the group called “The Silent Majority” complained against her bad mouthing and below the belt attacks against the Vice President over her recorded message in a video sent to air at a side event of the United Nations about the administration’s alleged extrajudicial killings over the drug war. She calls Robredo a liar for her wrong explanation of the “swap heads” scheme and wrong data.
Declined Army Invitation
Earlier, Margaux Uson in real life sent a letter saying that she would no longer attend the forum after courting bad publicity when she made the Army’s invitation known online, Army spokesperson Col. Benjamin Hao said. “The Philippine Army fully respects her decision.
The sexy Mocha Uson definitely has the right to air her opinions and sentiments but in most broadcasting platforms, there are rules that must be followed. Cursing, hate speeches, and unruly behavior cannot be tolerated because it is harmful to the media body as well. It has something to do with image. One can be truthful without the insults toward opponents. Mocha Uson goes back on air but after she passes a broadcasting exam.
