Denial of ARMM Tech Exam Does Not Affect Bongbong Marcos’ Pilot Provinces

Bongbong Marcos earlier asks for a technical examination in three Mindanao provinces allegedly because of the existence of fake voters. Marcos said the revisors need to examine each and every signature in the voter’s list to make sure that the vote is cast by the real voter. Leni Robredo opposes this because those are not Marcos’ pilot provinces. Therefore, it’s denial is not a big deal for the Marcos Camp. Despite the long wait, the election protest against Robredo continues to roll.

Stay with Pilot Provinces

Robredo’s camp said that Marcos has to content himself with the results of the recount of ballots from the three pilot provinces. Those are the basis of the PET to determine if Marcos’s protest shall proceed. Examination of other provinces can continue after that or the protest may be dismissed for lack of merit.




No Single Protest Have Won in the Past

“We are highly confident that after such recount the PET can see all the valid grounds and reasons to dismiss Marcos’ protest. Out of the hundreds of election protest cases, not a single election protest won. Particularly by any protestant on the basis of a recount of the ballots,” said Romulo Macalintal. However, the PET itself discloses that there are no other protests like Marcos’ case. In fact, it’s the only one that reaches the payment process.



Marcos is Confident that Recount Will Happen

Marcos has full confidence in the PET. This is the very reason why he files the electoral protest against Robredo. He has paid in full also prior to the deadline. This was not the case in the past protests that Macalintal talks about. Robredo, however, still has paid the second tranch of the required payment.









Dismissal of Motions are Over

Dealing with motions from both Camps is over. They now look forward to opening the ballot boxes. No amount of witnesses can ever surpass the importance of the manual recount itself. The ballots from the pilot provinces of Marcos are the ultimate judge of his victory or defeat during the last VP race against Robredo.

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

The PET ordered the initial recount of votes in Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental first. This is to prove whether or not the rest of Marcos’ protest has merit. Bongbong Marcos said that it is about to start in November and is expected to be completed in December this year.

No Witnesses for Anomalies

Marcos’ lawyer George Garcia told the Supreme Court that Marcos will no longer present witnesses. This is for the annulment part of his petition. It’s because their allegations of electoral fraud can best be proven through a ballot recount. Their camp no longer plans to present testimonial evidence or witnesses to support his allegations of widespread cheating. Particularly in 3 provinces where Vice President Leni Robredo won.



Marcos Drops Nullification of Votes

In his electoral protest against the Vice President, Marcos wants votes to be nullified in Basilan, Lanao del Sur, and Maguindanao. He cites the “widespread presence of terrorism, violence, threats, coercion, force, and intimidation.”



Not Abandonment of Election Fraud Protest

Atty. Garcia clarifies that; “The waiver of testimonial evidence in so far as the 3rd cause of action is concerned is not an abandonment of the electoral frauds, anomalies, and irregularities alleged in the electoral protest. These may be proven by the ballots which are ‘the best repository of the sovereign will,'” Garcia added.








Unaccounted Votes in Pilot Provinces

He also explained that the “unaccounted votes” for the position of vice president can be verified through the judicial and manual recount. This goes with the revision of election paraphernalia in 36,465 clustered precincts under 27 provinces and 5 highly urbanized cities as well.
