Atty. Romulo Macalintal said it first that the election recount of Bongbong Marcos’ protest against VP Leni Robredo is at the second week of February. The review of ballots from the contested clustered precincts in Camarines Sur, the vice president’s home province, is the priority. The retrieval is on January 22, 2018. The Supreme Court finally confirms it the next day.

Macalintal’s Disclosure

Macalintal explains that if Marcos could not prove any irregularity from the three pilot provinces, his protest is to be dismissed for lack of merit. Marcos’ three pilot provinces are Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental. For Camarines Sur alone, Macalintal said that P9.6 million is chargeable to Marcos’ cash deposit for the retrieval of ballots, salaries, and allowances of employees, security, transportation, and other expenses.




Meeting on Election Recount Regulations

Macalintal and Marcos’ lawyer, George Garcia, was at the SC for a  meeting on the regulations governing the recount of votes. A tour of the venue for the recount process followed. Macalintal is confident that the recount will “confirm and affirm the victory of Robredo as VP in the May 2016 elections.



Accurate Count

If the recount of ballots for local elective officials matches with the official election results, a national position would be similar. This is because the ballots used for the local and national elective positions are the same. They are counted and tallied by the same VCMs and CCS, said Macalintal.








Disclosure or Sabotage?

Many wondered why Macalintal announces the recount date first before the Supreme Court. He also insinuates that the recount results for the pilot areas would be the same as the final tallies. He based his disclosure on the past recounts since 2010. Doubts about his camp’s honesty loom because of his overconfidence. They asked why he is so sure of his insights if they have not done any moves to make sure that both results are identical? For sure, advocate for a clean election, Atty. Glenn Chong is on vigil with the recount processes as Macalintal acted suspiciously.

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.

[VIDEO]: Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal said that the recount for the VP Post in connection with Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against his client is expected to start in February 2018.




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.

Marcos Camp’s Atty. George Garcia Corrects Macalintal’s Election Protest Assumptions

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos’s lawyer, Atty. George Garcia reiterates that he partly agrees with the assumptions of VP Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal. That the recount can take 7 months or more. In fact, some protests are already over when the ruling is made. However, the Marcos Camp is ready for the lengthy process. They are practical about it. That’s why they pursue the case. This is an opportunity to improve the country’s digital election system. It’s a crucial test to be logical on what to do with Smartmatic. Given that it is the only national protest that reaches the full payment stage.

[VIDEO]: Atty. George Garcia for the Marcos Camp explains that the process of their election protest against VP Leni Robredo is indeed very long. It’s the first-ever national protest that can proceed. Even Mar Roxas’ protest against Binay is not at par because the latter only paid Php 300,000.




Macalintal’s Insistence

Macalintal butt in when Garcia explains that the whole recount process is a lengthy one. The 7 months estimate of Garcia does not include the collection of ballots, shipping, and other procedures. Atty. Garcia is gracious enough to agree with this in reality. But made some corrections.




The Only Surviving National Election Protest

Atty. Garcia clarifies that there may be lots of election protests on the local level since 201o but it’s in 2016 that there are Senatorial and VP race protests. Among these cases in the national front, it’s only Bongbong Marcos who has paid in full. They also do not assume that they can win immediately after the payment.



No Recount has Changed the Result in the Past

Macalintal stresses that in the past, no recount has made a revision on the final vote counts. The image printing may be an expensive process but previously, it did not make a difference in the official count. Garcia said that this may be the case but it is important for the country to make use of Marcos’ case to improve future automated elections in the future especially at the national level. Presidential at that.









Win or Lose is Acceptable

The Marcos Camp is grateful enough that the case continues. The results of the recounts in pilot provinces are the only things that matter for Supreme Court to rule if the election protest versus the Vice President has merits. So, other motions like the ARMM tech test must be out of the way. Perhaps, Marcos’ protest can help to decide on Smartmatic’s faith in 2019 which Macalintal defensively said to not blame it for alleged anomalies.

Only Bongbong Marcos’ Election Protest Complied with Full Payment Despite SC CJ’s Impeachment

election





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos explains that no other election protests at the Presidential level have reached the full payment stage, unlike his protest. In short, it’s the only protest that is not abandoned despite the delay due to the Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno’s impeachment. Recently, SC Associate Justice Teresita de Castro testifies that Sereno issued an administrative order in 2012 that contradicted a resolution of the en banc on the opening of a regional court administrative office. Sereno’s Camp denies this. Its statement said that the SC en banc approved the creation of Regional Court Administrative Office (RCAO) in Region 7.

Presidential Appointee

Former President Benigno Aquino III appointed Sereno despite being the most junior among those were shortlisted to replace the late Chief Justice Renato Corona. This is after what was dubbed allegedly as Corona’s unfair trial at the Senate.




Not Emotional

De Castro stresses that she was not emotional when she discloses Sereno’s questionable decisions to the panel. She cannot question the ex-President’s appointment of Sereno. However, she cannot stand idly when there’s no more collective power in the Supreme Court. Particularly when the en back decisions are set aside.



Advice to the Panel

The Associate Justice suggests to the panel to look at the evidence available to determine if there’s substance or basis in her testimony. She is not a Justice for nothing after 20 years if they think that she is just emotional.









VP Election Recount

Marcos insists that Sereno’s plight must not affect the recount for his election protest against Leni Robredo. Their proceeding is under the Tribunal. He, However, can see further delay if the CJ is impeached. That could lead to a slow ruling. Robredo’s Lawyer, Romulo Macalintal got it all wrong again that no protests in the country yet has progressed. In fact, his client’s counter-protest is for dismissal due to the non-payment of their balance.

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.
