Bongbong Marcos Camp’s spokesperson, Atty. Vic Rodriguez said that the former Senator is more than ever determined to see the real results of the manual recount to eject the fake vice president. VP Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Atty. Romulo, however, retaliates and says that “ there is no such thing as ‘fake VP’. But there is such thing as ‘fake protest’. He trusts that contrary to Marcos’ wishes, Robredo can clear her victory once the recount is completed,” Macalintal said.

[VIDEO]: Can the Recount Put Closure to the VP Election Protest of Bongbong Marcos?




Closure or Disunity after Protest?

The recount scheduled for February 2018 can either bring closure or more disunity depending on how it is processed. This is in connection with Bongbong Marcos’ election protest against VP Leni Robredo. Clean election advocates already scrutinize the ballot retrieval process of the pilot provinces namely; Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental.




Robredo’s Territory First

Macalintal said that the first ones to count are the ballots from the clustered precincts in Camarines Sur. It’s the vice president’s home province. The ballot retrievals are set on January 22, 2018. The recount should start by the second week of February. This two other pilot provinces can then follow.



Marcos’ Choices

The Supreme Court that sits as the PET, begins in February 2018 the recount of votes. It covers the three pilot provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental. Marcos chooses them as the best provinces. He’s certain that he could prove the irregularities alleged in his protest there.








Did not Pay a High Price to Lose

If Marcos could not prove any substantial recovery of votes from these three pilot provinces, his protest will be dismissed for lack of merit. This is under the PET Rules, Macalintal said. In Camarines Sur alone, P9.6 million would be charged to Marcos’ cash deposit for the retrieval of ballots, salaries, and allowances of employees, security, transportation, and other expenses.

Macalintal is Ahead of the Supreme Court: VP Recount to Start in February 2018

Supreme Court





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Romulo Macalintal visited the recount area at the Supreme Court recently and said that the manual count is expected to start in February 2018. They want this done and over with. Hoping to erase doubts on VP Leni Robredo’s victory over Bongbong Marcos who filed the electoral against her. There’s no indication yet that it is so at this time of writing from the SC nor the Marcos Camp.

2nd Week of February

The ballot recount requested by Bongbong” Marcos is to start on the second week of February. This is according to Romulo Macalintal, lawyer of Vice President Leni Robredo. In a statement, Macalintal said that the Supreme Court would start collecting the ballots in Camarines Sur on Jan. 22. It sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal or PET,




Marcos’ Priority Areas

Marcos chooses three pilot provinces – Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental for the initial recount. His camp earlier explains that these would be the “best provinces.” These are where he could prove his allegation of electoral fraud in the vice presidential race.



Macalintal’s Confidence in the Supreme Court

In an ambush interview at the Supreme Court, Macalintal expressed confidence that the recount would push Marcos’s electoral protest towards dismissal. Of course, Marcos can only retaliate as it happens. The Counter-Protest must be decided first after Robredo failed to pay her 7 Million balance on time.








No Revisions Before Until Now

Macalintal explains that out of around 500 candidates who protested in local elections have not shown any revision. However, Atty. George Garcia of the Marcos Camp earlier stressed that Marcos’ electoral protest is unique in its own rights. It is the only protest at the national level who has paid in full. If this is just Robredo’s media stunt, she can easily burn to her extinction.

Bongbong Marcos’ Lawyer Calls on Automated Election Bidding as Macalintal Frowns

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos’ lawyer George Garcia said that the Comelec should start to conduct a bidding process for the next election in 2019 already for suppliers of automated election machines. He adds that the result of Marcos’ electoral protest against Leni Robredo can even help in determining if there are no revisions to the actual vote counts compared to the machine-generated results. Atty. Romulo Macalintal of Robredo’s is obviously uncomfortable upon hearing this.

[VIDEO]: VP Leni Robredo’s lead counsel, Atty. Romulo Macalintal frowns when Atty. George Garcia of the Marcos Camp calls for an early automated election bidding process. This is for Comelec to decide if a Smartmatic replacement is necessary.




Early Resolution of Election Protest

The early resolution of the Marcos-Robredo election protest can affirm the credibility of Comelec and even Smartmatic if Robredo wins. If it is the other way around, then it’s about time to change the supplier. Garcia stresses that it’s better to look for options already early on so that decisions won’t be last minute. That can end up in selecting only the available choice and not the best if Comelec won’t move now.




Any Result is Acceptable for Marcos

Marcos may want to win the protest but if it won’t work in his favor, it’s also acceptable. What’s important is to expedite the recount to know the real score. Comelec should take advantage of having this opportunity to clear their name from doubts that they have a hand in the alleged fraudulent 2016 elections.



Macalintal’s Response

Macalintal mocks the IT experts who give their expert opinions on the transmission trend and server behavior when the immediate twist of fate started on the night of the May 16, 2016, VP race.  This is in contrast with Clean Elections advocate, Atty. Glenn Chong’s statement that says that the fraudulent activities during the latest national elections were not only manual but digital in nature. Aside from being a lawyer, he also has some IT background. Not to mention the witnesses of Pastor Boy Saycon in the Senate on the alleged rigging incidents involving system redirecting for questionable servers.








Assessment And Evaluation

Section 33 of RA 9369 states that the JCOC  must monitor and evaluate the digital election system within six months from the date of the election. Comprehensive assessment and evaluation of the AES technologies must be the basis for the appropriate recommendations to Congress.”

Robredo Badly Burned again After Lawyers’ Dumb Media Stunt Against Bongbong Marcos

media





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
A leader is only as good as her people. The media stunt of VP Leni Robredo’s lawyers really made her look so bad. Lawyers Romulo Macalintal and Bernadette Sardillo’s recent accusation against Bongbong Marcos over his list of election fraud witnesses failed miserably. People are just stunned by the response of Atty. Vic Rodriguez from the Marcos Camp. Eventually, lawyers should know who qualifies as such. Social media comments go to the line of criticizing her camp to be as dumb as ever.

Resolution on BEI Requirement

The Section 5 of  Comelec Resolution No. 10031 is misleading. Former-Comelec chairman Andres Bautista signs this. It cites that a person must be “a registered voter of the city or municipality.” This is to become a member or chairperson of the BEI. It has nothing to do with a witness’ qualification.




Disqualify Poll Officers First

Rodriguez said Robredo assumes that the poll officers they presented on their list are not qualified. As a lawyer, she should present proof that those whom she claims to have served as BEI’s are disqualified. It is unlawful just to resort to the spread of fake news. Irresponsible and false statements can backfire on them, the lawyer said. “Assuming they are indeed not qualified, Robredo should be reminded that it was ‘her own COMELEC’ then led by its impeached head, Andy Bautista, who appointed them, and not us,” he added.



BEI Witnesses Need not Be Precinct Voters

Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) are not expected to be registered voters to the precincts they are serving or have served. All BEIs are only required to be registered voters. This is Rodriguez’s response after the camp of  Vice President Leni Robredo, calls Marcos a liar over the list of witnesses for his election protest from Lanao del Sur, Maguindanao, and Basilan.









Out of Sight

Immediately after the shameful event, the questionable VP disappears from the media scene. Supreme Court Chief Justice, Maria Lourdes Sereno takes over her spot in the limelight. This has to do with the ongoing Congressional hearings on her impeachment.

Bongbong Marcos’ Lawyer Reminds Macalintal – Election Recount Comes First Before Witnesses

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

 

VP Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo keeps on hitting Bongbong Marcos for allegedly failing to abide by what was agreed upon during the preliminary conference. The limit of witnesses is to expedite the procedure of his election protest against Robredo. However, Marcos said that the 51 witnesses are substantial to prove the first part of the protest. This is about the digital fraud of the entire automated election. Therefore, Atty. George Erwin Garcia has to remind the elderly, Macalintal that the Supreme Court rules to facilitate the recount first.

Keeps on Hitting Marcos

Among those cited by the Robredo camp is agreeing on identifying and limiting the number of witnesses. For his first cause of action, the Marcos camp agreed to limit their witnesses to only 25. For his second cause of action, Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa suggested that they limit the number of witnesses to only three per precinct to which both parties agreed.




51 Witnesses Must be Intact

But in his comment, Marcos insisted on presenting 51 witnesses for his first cause of action and with made reservations to the presentation of three witnesses per precinct.



Process Delays

Macalintal said the Marcos camp should stop blaming their camp for allegedly delaying the process. “For it is clear that whatever ‘delay’ there is in his protest is because of Marcos’ flip-flopping position on how he wants to proceed with his protest,” Macalintal added.








First Election Case of Its Kind

Atty. Garcia has to remind Macalintal that the Supreme Court already decided to move on to the recount because the digital fraud is a longer and more complicated process. His questions on the number of witnesses are not yet relevant. Also, Macalintal cannot compare the length of the Binay-Roxas case because they have not reached the recount and it did not involve an automated election process. Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo is the first of its kind. So, previous patterns do not apply.
