Bongbong Marcos talks to Erwin Tulfo on his Tutok Tulfo program on various issues particularly the update of his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo. He is generally disappointed with its slow progress. In fact, the President inquires on it because it’s like nothing is happening. Therefore, Marcos urges the PET that sits as the electoral tribunal of the Supreme Court to fast-track the processes. It is not fair to let the people wait until the next election which is in 2019.

[VIDEO]: The recount of ballot boxes from Iloilo has more anomalies than in Camarines Sur. Bongbong Marcos urges the PET to rule on it ASAP.
Ballot to Picnic Boxes
Marcos observes that the condition of the election evidence in Iloilo is far worst than in Camarines Sur. Aside from being wet, and the missing election returns, it is obvious that the picnic boxes that contain the votes do not comply with the standard specified by the ruling.
The Fishy Thing in the Electoral Protest Recount
Host, Erwin Tulfo also mentions the fish bones found in the ballot boxes which Marcos confirms. Gov. Imee Marcos earlier hinted on this during her speech in Bacoor, Cavite. What’s odd is that VP Leni Robredo files a motion for grave concern on the magnifying lens use by one of Marcos’ revisors to be able to see clearly and not on the picnic boxes, wet condition, and fish bones found.
No More Delays
Marcos stands by his commitment to the Filipino people to fight until each and every valid vote that was cast will be counted. He refrains from filing any additional motions that can delay the process unlike the childish acts of Robredo. It is a pity when his declaration as the winner for the 2016 Vice Presidential race comes only when his term is about to end which was the case for the other protests in the past.
Not for Senator
The former Senator reiterates that he is definitely not running for Senator this 2019 regardless of the status or outcome of his protest. The PET just have to decide on how to go about the anomalies reported to regain the people’s trust in the country’s electoral system. Marcos also pushes for the elimination of Smartmatic from the upcoming elections.
The camp of Robredo accuses the Marcos force of violating Supreme Court (SC) rules in the ongoing recount of vice presidential votes. That was when one of their revisors allegedly used a plastic magnifying lens during the recount proceeding. “Nestor Borromeo opted to use a child’s plastic magnifying glass to see clearly. What difference will this make on the recounting of votes?” he asked.

The manifestation of Grave Concern
In a manifestation of grave concern by Robredo’s lawyers, she calls out on Marcos revisor Nestor Borromeo for allegedly bringing and using a plastic magnifying lens on June 14. They consider it as a prohibited item. The Supreme Court had previously informed both parties that only papers can be brought inside the venue for the revision.
Rodriguez said they are expecting “more desperate disruptions” from the Robredo camp. “Not now that the proof of fraud and massive cheating is out in the open. We expect more desperate disruptions to come our way. After all, Robredo admitted in a recent TV interview that even though she was out of the loop with the current administration, her way of remaining relevant is “to try to disrupt in the manner in which her office has positioned itself,” he said.
Not Slowing Down
Marcos’ spokesperson said they will not allow disruptions. “We won’t allow the election protest to be ‘disrupted ‘ by her desperate, childish and obvious attempts to delay the recount. Instead, we will continue our commitment to the Filipino people to fight until each and every valid vote that was cast will be counted,” Rodriguez added.
United at the Supreme Court
The supporters of former Senator Bongbong Marcos blast Vice President Leni Robredo for the childish complaint. They take it as a malicious act of Robredo to suppress the truth. A gathering for unity to mark the June 29 electoral protest filing anniversary happens recently. It’s been two years and things are still too slow for the case to progress.
Few days after President Rodrigo Du30 hints that he’s not sure if VP Leni Robredo is the real Vice President, Gov. Imee Marcos comes out in the open and divulges that Robredo’s 263,473 votes lead over Bongbong Marcos is now down to 200,000 as per the ongoing recount of his electoral protest. She tells everyone to be patient because her brother is soon to assume the second highest office in the land.
Gov. Marcos discloses the statistics while in Nueva Vizcaya in a speech as guest speaker during the 2nd-anniversary celebration of the Timpuyog ti Babbalasang idi Kalman-Nueva Vizcaya. It is an organization of married women. She met and conferred with former Kabataang Barangay (KB) leaders in the province led by former board member Efren Quiben.
Marcos Patriarch’s Project
The KB, the predecessor of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK), was created by Presidential Decree 684 signed on April 15, 1975. It was by the governor’s father and then-President Ferdinand Marcos. However, it was abolished in 1986 after he was overthrown from office.
Gov. Marcos said her brother is very serious in his election protest against the Vice President. She said at this point they are invalidating the votes in only three provinces, Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental.
Soon to be VP
The lady governor further discloses that the one voted by Nueva Vizcaya and Ilocos Norte will soon be taking over as Vice President. She refers to her brother. They are indeed very optimistic because of the shocking anomalies found.
Bongbong Marcos reiterates how Vice influential President Leni Robredo can be with the Supreme Court should her petition to lower the election shading threshold from 50% to 25% in the middle of the recount is successful. The PET earlier junks Robredo’s said petition but she submits a motion for reconsideration. Marcos also firmly opposes the plea in a separate petition not to grant her request.

Playing the Underdog
VP Robredo fails to convince the public that she’s the underdog in the VP race protest against her by Marcos. She keeps on accusing the latter of masterminding fake news that allegedly maligns her reputation. The vice president further accuses Marcos and said that unfortunately for her, former Senator “has the money to spend to damage her character.”
The President’s Hand
However, the Marcos loyalists are passionate enough to fight for what they believe in without the said well-oiled infrastructure that the VP is famous for. They are grateful enough to be recognized as followers of the son of the greatest leader the Philippines ever had. President Rodrigo Du30 is himself is a believer of the late President Marcos. He is the only President after the older Marcos to continue his massive development plans for the country. Build, Build, Build and the likes.
Supreme Court is still Dominated by Caguioa
Previously, Gov. Imee Marcos expresses her concern on Supreme Court Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa’s loyalty to the previous administration headed by his classmate who appointed him in the position, Former President Benigno Simeon Aquino III. His being the Chair of the PET put’s her brother’s case in uncertainty as seen in his various bias rulings in favor of Robredo.
Gossip vs. Facts
The media mechanism of Robredo is now busy launching a reputation management campaign for her. However, there’s not much they can do with the reasonings of the VP. If being quiet against fake news did not work for her, she will surely be hooked from her own mouth. She should address issues as they are like what Bongbong Marcos is doing.
The revisors at the Supreme Court said that they saw “many votes of President Rodrigo Duterte that did not go to him. However, their attention is on the result of the manual recount and revision of ballots in the vice presidential election protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo. The President knew this right after the May 2016 election when Pastor Boy Saycon of the Binay Camp first reports to him through the phone the anomalies done by the LP. Saycon’s pronouncement later matches the testimonies of witnesses in the Senate. This is why Du30 whispers to Marcos that he is cheated during their first meeting in Davao.

ThePresident was Cheated and He Knows it
The President said it many times to Sereno that he always follow the rule of law. Despite that, the ousted Chief Justice never stops discrediting him. That drives the Filipino leader to deal with her head on. At the present time, revisors of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal of the Supreme Court said that there were votes cast for President Duterte that were not counted in his favor. They randomly check the votes cast for the presidency “to check if there were also discrepancies in the presidential election after discovering discrepancies in the results for the vice presidential election.” President Duterte won the 2016 election with more than 6.6 million votes than those garnered by his closest rival, Mar Roxas.
Justices to Decide to Continue the Recount
The manual recount and revision of votes in the provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental is now in its seventh week. The results in the recount and revision of ballots in the three provinces would determine if the PET, composed of all Supreme Court justices, would still pursue the protest in 24 more provinces and cities covered by Marcos’ case.
Not Surprising for the Marcos Camp
Lawyer Vic Rodriguez of the Marcos Camp said that the reduction of votes for President Duterte was not a surprise. “We are not surprised by such report because it just confirms what we have been saying all along – that the cheating was widespread that it also affected President Duterte but his lead was insurmountable that all attempts failed,” Rodriguez said.
Big Change in the Supreme Court
The removal of Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno from the Supreme Court signals an upcoming big change in the government. Many Filipinos suspect and hope that the declaration of the VP race real winner is next to come. Marcos can be the new Vice President soon. Things may be quiet now because of the gag order but one thing is certain; the Philippines will soon have their elected leaders and much more.
