PET Found the Protest of Bongbong Marcos to be Sufficient in Form and Substance

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

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.

Bongbong Marcos Urges SC to Take Action on Comelec’s Disregarding SD Cards Decryption

Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The process of decrypting SD cards have been done so many times in the past and so now we’re wondering why Comelec can’t seem to do it now, Rodriguez said on behalf of the Marcos camp.

Speculations Arise

The Comelec’s failure to decrypt the unused SD cards with data results to Marcos camp’s insisting that one possible reason is that the SD cards are tampered with. Another theory is the existence of a defective tool to decrypt data or the existence software that is not authorized.




Unauthorized Software Found

Comelec cannot blame the Marcos camp because their IT representatives find a program in the SD cards in question that is compatible only with Windows operating system.Linux is the system Smartmatic uses to format the SD cards.




No Explanation can Draw Unfavorable Conclusions

The Marcos camp claims that the presence of data in SD cards of supposedly unused VCMs proves the existence of electoral fraud. Who can dispute that if no explanations are given? In the first place, it’s against the law.

Robredo Camp’s Verbal Defenses are No Good

Macalintals, bionic, dreaming and exhilarating remarks do not do them any good. They should also urge the Comelec to follow the election protocol or else they cannot deny that they connive with each other.

Common Sense on Marcos Electoral Protest: Unused SD Cards with Data is Obviously Corrupt

Marcos electoral protest





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The decryption of 26 SD cards with data at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) office in Intramuros, Manila, lawyer Victor Rodriguez, spokesman of Marcos, said the fact that the SD cards are corrupted at the very beginning, it is enough to prove that there’s fraud during the last May 2016 elections.






Youtube video by; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: THE camp of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Monday asserted that data found in many of the secure digital (SD) cards retrieved from supposedly unused vote-counting machines (VCMs) strengthened their election protest.



Denial and Lies

Robredo’s camp can deny or lie about it but the discovery of the data in unused SD cards strengthens the position of Bongbong Marcos saying that massive fraud happens in the last elections. SD cards from unused VCM should be empty. That certainly bolsters Marcos’ position.




Stripping Pressure

Marcos lawyers oppose the stripping of the unused VCMs in violation of the protective precautionary order issued by the PET. Its purpose is to preserve the integrity of the ballot boxes and other equipment used in the last elections. Despite the plea, the Comelec seems to rush with it and threatens to charge Marcos for the delay of the VCMs return to Smartmatic on October 26, 2016.




Credibility of Philippine Elections

The Philippines is noted to have very fraudulent elections. Lawmakers opt for the digital system to hopefully give faster and cleaner results. However, the evidence gathered by the Marcos camp prove otherwise. The last election is the dirtiest and most fraudulent election the country ever had.

Bongbong Marcos’ Protest is the Fight for All Filipinos

The Marcos camp vows to fight until the very end – because the integrity of the country’s election system is at stake. They would not stop until all the fraud and machinations are exposed. Filipinos must be vigilant that the culprits cannot carry out the same cheating methods in future elections.

Technology Expert’s Analysis: Data in Unused SD Cards Can Corrupt Election Files

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

No one speculates the facts from the Bongbong Marcos camp. The data in unused SD cards corrupts the election files. An SD card is a type of memory card typically used in digital cameras and other portable devices. To avoid corrupt files, formatting SD Cards is necessary. Smartmatic fails to do this.






Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: Former senator Bongbong Marcos says data found in some SD cards retrieved from supposedly unused vote-counting machines prove there was fraud in the 2016 elections.



Inquirer’s Opinion

According to Inquirer, the claims of the camp of Bongbong Marcos of election fraud in the decryption of secure digital (SD) memory cards are speculative and not automatically accurate is inaccurate. It is because the technical term of an unused SD card with data is “corrupted.” Thereby, anything that is stored in there are corrupted files. Since the files are corrupt, there is fraud.




Continued Decryption is Delaying Electoral Protest ruling

The decrypting process of the rest of the 127 SD cards is a delaying tactic of the Comelec. The poll body cannot provide a timeline on when the decryption of the 127 SD cards will be finished.




Further Decryption of SD cards Unnecessary

Contrary to Robredo’s camp, the most prudent course of action now is not to wait for the result of the decrypting process. The data retrieved from the first 13 SD cards must be disclosed to the public.

Show Data for Expert and Public Analysis

To cut the story short, Comelec only has to show the data in the first 13 SD cards. If they fail to do this immediately, they are obviously hiding something. Delay of such act is highly speculative.

Electoral Protest of Bongbong Marcos Leads to the Discovery of Biggest Digital Election Fraud

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Smartmatic decrypts 26 SD cards where 13 of them have folders that contain data in them. It is very unlikely why some of the 120 SD cards have data in them when they come from unused VCMs kits. This supports the Marcos camp’s protest that SC preserves the VCMs until the election protest finishes because they are vital in the protest.






Youtube video by; EagleNews PH
[VIDEO]: The camp of Bongbong Marcos challenged the Comelec to show the content of supposed to be unused SD cards that are suspected to be used.



Decryption is still Ongoing

The Comelec decrypts of 26 of the 127 SD cards found to have data during the stripping of 1,356 unused VCMs last October 2016. This still goes on until they finish all the 127 SD cards.




A Booster of Marcos’ Position

This strengthens the position of Bongbong Marcos that massive fraud indeed happens during the last elections. SD cards from unused VCMs should be empty. Marcos lawyer, Victor Rodriguez confirms that they have data in them. He also serves as the spokesperson of Marcos.




Hurdles along the Way

It is not easy for the Marcos camp to continue the fight against Vice President Leni Robredo’s occupying the second highest position in the land. The discovery inspires Marcos’ team to not surrender.

Dedicated to Fight Until the End

There is no way that Bongbong Marcos stops his electoral protest against Robredo, especially now that even without knowing the content yet, it’s already proven that there’s indeed cheating since data exist in SD cards that are declared unused. That is already a clear lie!

PET Authorizes Comelec to Return VCMs Pending Marcos Electoral Protest to Move Forward

Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Supreme Court’s Philippine Electoral Tribunal grants the motion filed by the poll body last August and orders Comelec to “immediately conduct stripping activities for all the vote counting machines and other election materials for the timely return to Smartmatic.
The PET also directs the Comelec to expedite its complaint and “allow the parties and representatives of the Tribunal to observe and comment during the cleanup.

[VIDEO]: Petisyon ni dating Senador Bongbong Marcos na I-preserba ang VCM na ginamit sa eleksyon, Ibinasura ng Korte Suprema



Return of VCMs to Smartmatic

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) starts the process of returning the vote counting machines (VCM) to Smartmatic as the Supreme Court, sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), disregards the plea of Bongbong” Marcos to preserve these in his protest case against Vice President Leni Robredo. This is SC’s way of speeding up the electoral protest ruling.

Rushed Stripping can Erase Data

Early on. Bongbong Marcos’ camp is in haste in seeing possibilities of erasing evidence. They doubt why Comelec defies a lawful order of the highest court just to accommodate Smartmatic. They may appear to be in a rush to turn over the VCMs to Smartmatic but perhaps necessary to move forward.




Stripped of Data

In the electoral protest, the Marcos camp opposes the return of more than 1,000 VCMs because the unused SD cards from these machines are stripped of data during a 14-hour activity at the Comelec warehouse in Sta. Rosa, Laguna as witnesses recount. They are under the protection of Pastor Boy Saycon from the Binay Camp.

SC Avoids Penalty and Moves Forward

The PET asks the Comelec for the itemized cost of the fees due to be paid to Smartmatic for the delay in the return of election equipment due to the Marcos’ protest. The Comelec claims that the damage would be P2.078 billion. Therefore, this COMELEC order serves the public welfare most of all. Unless this step is done, the next proceedings of the electoral protest cannot move forward toward a resolution to settle the Marcos-Robredo issues.

PET on Bongbong Marcos Electoral Protest: SC Listens To The People – Orders Comelec To Move Quickly

Bongbong Marcos





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The Supreme Court orders the Commission on Elections or COMELEC to quickly finish the stripping activities of all the vote counting machines or VCMs as part of the election protest filed by former senator Bongbong Marcos. This proves that the SC listens to the people’s sentiments over the issue.






Youtube video by; Rappler
[VIDEO]: Vice President Leni Robredo says she is more worried about the legal fees more than the case filed against her by Bongbong Marcos before the Presidential Electoral Tribunal because she believes it has no sufficient basis.



Serving Public Interest

The COMELEC order serves the public interest. Unless this step is done, the protest proceedings under the High Court sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal cannot move forward toward a resolution.

Robredo’s Camp Benefits on the Delay

Marcos’ opponent is not bothered with the upcoming decision of PET on the electoral protest against Robredo. They know the process that Comelec wants to implement. If it’s allowed bu the Supreme Court to happen, it will take around four years minimum and just before the V.P. term expires maximum.



Public Outcry Pours Over Social Media

Online users go to Facebook Political groups and New Politics websites to make their sentiments known. Many of them are fed-up with the long process. The common outcry is to allow the re-counting of votes as suggested in the electoral protest.

Slow Justice No More

The Duterte administration vowed that it will not allow the slow justice system anymore. This is evident in the former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s case and during the Maros burial. Marcos’ supporters are calling for President Duterte’s hand in fast-tracking the anticipated PET ruling over the issue.

Marcos Electoral Protest: SC Expected to Give Ruling Soon Despite the P2B Damage Warning of Comelec

Marcos electoral protest





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
In the New Year of 2017, the Supreme Court is keeping a low profile on the Comelec warning that it would cost the government P2B in damages for breach of contract with Smartmatic. Pnoy’s appointees at the Commission on Election headed by Andres Bautista seem to be more protective of Smartmatic than to the Filipino people. Comelec earlier blames Bongbong Marcos for the delay of the return of 97,366 units of vote-counting machines and the election management system and accessories. They are on lease for the May 2016 elections from Smartmatic-TIM, Inc.

SC’s Discreet Moves

THE Supreme Court on remains quiet on the electoral protest filed by Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. against Vice President Maria Leonor Robredo. It only says to release a resolution on the issue. “The Tribunal will issue a resolution on this in due course,” says SC spokesman Theodore Te.

Robredo Ordered to Answer

The SC, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, orders Robredo to answer the electoral protest but the deadline is not disclosed. Robredo’s lawyer, Macalintal complains that it’s the longest electoral protest ever and they need time to review the accusations.



The V.P. Asks SC to Dismiss Electoral Protest

Vice President Robredo asks the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) to dismiss the election protest filed by former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos. In her 536-page answer, Robredo, through her lawyers Romulo Macalintal and Ma. Bernadette Sardillo, said the issues raised by Marcos are not proper grounds for an election protest.
