Most Filipinos are grateful that Bongbong Marcos pays the gag order rule violation penalty than leave people in the dark. He is keen to air his observations of the ongoing manual recounts. This is in both the Camarines Norte and Iloilo priority areas. However, it’s not his nature to spit the outcome of undisclosed electoral protest against Leni Robredo. His camp is compliant to almost all rules of the PET if not all. Since paying the Php 36 Million protest fee in full, Marcos still bleeds money. The recent one is the said fee that amounts to Php 50,000. Robredo continues to buy time as usual.

Good that Marcos has Money
It may be an advantage that the former Senator is wealthy enough to spend for all the demands of the PET He can always raise money from equally-abled friends if it’s too much to affect his cash flow. All he wants to find out is the truth and according to various developments in the Senate, he is likely the legitimate Vice President of the Philippines.
The Undemocratic Gag Order
The PET in late June imposed a fine of P50,000 each on Marcos and Robredo as a penalty for their violation of the sub judice rule. It bars parties to a case from making disclosures that could result in the prejudging of matters pending before a court. Marcos’ poll protest against Robredo is a challenge to her victory in the 2016 election. It involves a manual recount of ballots from three pilot provinces. The results determine whether the recount will proceed to the rest of Marcos’ contested voting precincts.
The Denial Queen
Robredo said that she nor her counsels did not reveal sensitive information about the poll protest. Marcos, on the other hand, said his own camp’s statements were not meant to prejudge the issue, influence the court, and obstruct justice. They are just his mere observations. She, nonetheless claims that she is just merely answering Marcos’ disclosure. Ultimately, the questionable VP can never refrain from pointing fingers at Marcos.
The Manner of the Payment Process
Marcos through his counsels, unto this Honorable Tribunal (PET), most respectfully manifests that he has paid the amount of Fifty Thousand Pesos (P50,000) in compliance with its Resolution dated 26 June 2018,” stated Marcos’ compliance document.
Preserving the People’s Rights
The amount mentioned is just minimal to preserve the people’s rights to know the truth. The secretive nature of the PET in treating Marcos’ electoral protest triggers the people’s curiosity with the integrity of the automated election. Since Atty. Glenn Chong reveals many anomalies that benefit the LP bets in 2016, loyalists of both Marcos and Du30 are now ready to take their fight into the streets in a public protest. They would soon gather in front of the COMELEC on August 10, 2018, at 2 PM.
