Seniority-wise, Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III is set to succeed Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III. This can happen within this year, Senator Panfilo Lacson said. He cites that both seem to have an “agreement” that the Senate would respect. However, the senators deny this at this time but assure the public that they would soon talk. Previously, Senator Sotto reveals that he has reliable sources that can shed light on the anomalies of the 2016 election that is now the subject of the ongoing VP recount. The change of leadership can definitely give Bongbong Marcos an upper hand against Vice President Leni Robredo.

Senator Lacson’s View

Senator Lacson estimates that the change in Senate leadership may happen in June or July, or in October at the latest. He speaks logically based on the legal process. Pimentel needs to give up his post for his re-election bid. Sotto is next in line in terms of experience.




No Agreement Yet

In previous reports, Lacson said the Senate will respect the agreement between the two if there’s any. However, Pimentel is yet to talk to Sotto on this matter. Sotto also confirms that there is no direct indication yet on that issue. There must be a caucus because two parties cannot decide only by themselves.




Will Talk Soon

Pimentel said there is “no agreement” yet. However, he added: “But will talk to Senator Sotto immediately upon arrival from Europe. Then hold majority caucus.” He is ready to vacate the post once the required 13 votes are reached. This pronouncement jives with Sotto’s thoughts. Therefore, it is likely to happen really soon.




Much Favored Senate President to Be

Like Pimentel, Sotto is a staunch ally of President Rodrigo Du30. The only difference is, there’s no doubt of his loyalty whereas Pimentel can be “friendly” to the Liberal Party members. Sotto also is the most senior among all senators and has more core allies in the chamber than Pimentel, whose only party mate is neophyte Senator Manny Pacquiao. Sotto definitely gets the nod of the majority with his expose and exchanges against the unpopular VP.

Resistance vs. Imee Marcos: Does PI Need to Wait for Election 2019 Winners to Start Deuterium Extraction?

acting workshop

The likely top senatorial candidate for election 2019, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos has full commitment to clean and renewable energy. She renews her advocacy on this matter during the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Forum held previously in Laoag City. This gives hope to the country’s local deuterium explorers to produce clean hydrogen fuel as a substitute for gasoline. They are certain that with her influence, they can finally get the pending oil and gas exploration permit from the DOE’s Evaluation Section. However, the “Resistance” is also building up to counteract her ideologies.

The Resistance for Election 2019

The president of the opposition Liberal Party (LP) hopes to see a strong opposition in the 2019 midterm elections. He echoes the statement of his party-mate, Senator Bam Aquino who eyes a “resistance” coalition in next year’s polls. Senator Francis Pangilinan said a genuine opposition is needed to make sure that the country’s “democracy remains vibrant.”




Hydrogen Fuel from Deuterium

Deuterium is abundant in the Philippines. 100% Filipino explorers bank on the President’s good governance to finally drive this project forward. He already endorses the 60 -40% deal in favor of the government to the DOE. No foreign consultants partake in this private-public joint-venture. The aim is to produce clean hydrogen fuel for local consumption first. This can uplift the nation’s economy. They intend to refine locally using a portable mini refinery machine from Korea on site. A Refinery and distilling plant can arise locally in the future on a partnership basis with global players particularly ASEAN.




Hiccups at the DOE Evaluation Section

In a democratic country, contrary to the LP propaganda, lawmakers from the Senate and Congress have great influence in the country’s decision-making process. If both chambers are not in unison with the wishes of the President, the delay for beneficial projects like this one can happen. Foreign investors through the oligarchs want to bring crude oil out. Then refine in their country. Just to sell them back to the Philippines at surging commercial prices. The Filipino consortium turns their offer down. Thus, made them suspect why their permit is withheld. The DOE meanwhile, asks the group to show proof of financial capability. So, this is all about money.




The Resistance’s Unacceptable Liberalism

Back to Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, she believes that the latest expose on alleged irregularities during the 2016 elections could strengthen the election protest of her brother, Bongbong Marcos, against the Vice President. It is also on file that Senator Tito Sotto previously expresses his disgust to decriminalize illegal drug use in the country. Vice President Leni Robredo floats the idea. She insinuates this Liberalism stand of her backers from the “Resistance” slate against President Rodrigo Du30 whom the Marcoses support. Can they still fool people with the dictatorship myth to jeopardize democracy and economic progress of the country?

The DOE Cites the Proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law as the Reason for the Deuterium Exploration Delay

Deuterium





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

acting workshop

Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri, the chairman of the sub-committee on the BBL, reiterates the Senate’s commitment to passing the Proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law bill. Zubiri earlier said that President Rodrigo Du30 expresses the commitment to certify the bill as urgent. This shows clearly that the President is not a dictator as supported by former Senator Bongbong Marcos. However, the power struggle in both the Senate and the Congress causes the delay of the country’s progress. Currently, the Department of Energy cites the pending Bangsamoro issue as the cause for the issuance delay of the oil and gas exploration permit that allows EMGVCI to develop deuterium deposits as hydrogen fuel for the country’s consumption.








Republishing of PTV’s Youtube video by; Elena Grace Flores
[VIDEO]: Du30 has appealed to both the Congress and the Senate but until now resistance is still strong from both chambers. This is an extract from PTV’s news clipping: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsOuo…

A Priority for the Senate

The Senate will prioritize the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) and not the impeachment trial against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno when the Senate resumes its sessions in May, Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III said recently.  However, prior to the April 2  recount of Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest, Sotto exposes evidence of digital election fraud during the 2016 election.




The Delaying Game of the Anti-Marcos


[VIDEO]: FORMER SENATOR Ferdinand _Bongbong_ R. Marcos Jr., chair of the Senate Committee on Local Government,

Former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel Jr. despite the son’s alleged commitment to the Du30 administration questions the possible violations of the proposed parliamentary system of the Bangsamoro government and the implementation of Shariah laws. Pimentel said the system of government should be presidential, consistent with the 1987 Constitution. It is noted that former Senator Pimentel is an anti-Marcos. Koko Pimentel is also an indirect rival of Bongbong Marcos in the Vice Presidency because, in the constitution, the Senate President is next in line to the VP Post.




Different Faces of the Resistance at the Hearing

[VIDEO]: Senate hearing on the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law

The co-sponsor of the said law, Senator Risa Hontiveros said this previously in her speech; Bangsamoro is our commitment to peace. A peace that is built on and strengthened by democratic ideals, empowerment, progress, and justice. A peace that has long been awaited by a nation that is trying to heal from its fractured history. She also stresses this; With the Bangsamoro Basic Law, a bill I proudly co-sponsor, we renew our commitment to democracy. The persistent strife and poverty in the region took its damaging toll on our democratization project. So, this lady senator from the opposition is into the passing the law in line with the Presidents wishes. Isn’t she the one who accuses Du30 with term extensions through federalism, and entering into a compromise agreement with the Marcoses?




EMGVCI’s Stand

Banking on the Bangsamoro Basic Law does not make sense because of the A. O. R. is not within the area of ARMM. The property in question for the oil and gas exploration has a T. C. T. privately owned by Maulana. It also has M. O. A from the previous owner, Petronas Oil, OFyzia.  He bought the rights for 10 million USD and has a PNOC-approved permit from all the Barangays, Mayors, and provincial officers. It’s a  Maguindanao A. O. R. NOT a Tausog. However, we don’t want to deal with the oligarch’s big companies and consortium. Our group is a 100 percent Filipino including the engineers from Aramco Petronas Texas oil. We have all-Filipino technicians who are best in the world. They work for Maulanan Oil,  Mindanao, Philippines; said the chairman of the Filipino Consortium.

Will the Pilot Provinces April 2 Recount Determine VP Race Winner?

Pilot





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

acting workshop

Cesar Chavez fo DZRH Manila asks; Is the pilot provinces recount this April 2 enough to determine the winner of the 2016 Vice Presidential election? Bongbong Marcos answered; It depends on the number. April 2 marks the beginning of the recount but since there are 50 tables to be opened, it would take around 3 months if 100 precincts per day are met a day for the procedure.

[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos answers the questions of Cesar Chavez regarding April 2, 2018, recount during the DZRH Manila interview.

Value of the Pilot Provinces

Considering that all things go smoothly, the 3 pilot provinces which are; Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental, the amount of the discrepancy is crucial in determining if the recount should continue. In short, it won’t stop there. Declaration of winners by then won’t happen yet.




Sufficiency of the Initial Recounts

Bongbong Marcos said that his electoral protest includes recount for 34,000 clustered precincts. The PET, however, rules that only 3 pilot provinces can serve as a determining factor if there is a basis for his electoral fraud accusation against his rival’s political party that can officiate such manipulation.




Father’s Legacy to Continue

The son of the late President Ferdinand Marcos aims to continue his protest to realize his father’s plan for the country. Quality education, agriculture, infrastructure, business opportunities, and better public services must be the priorities to augment the lives of the poor.




Relation to Senator Sotto’s Expose

The expose of Senator Tito Sotto might be in line with Bongbong Marcos’ protest but that touches the general integrity of both the local and national elections. Whereas, in his electoral protest, despite the massive indication of electoral sabotage, it remains exclusive to the VP post and nothing to do with other positions that may be affected by the results of the recount.

Robredo Drags Du30 to LP Mess a Week Before Facing Bongbong Marcos in a Recount

Recount





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

acting workshop

A week prior to the recount, this is a hot topic in social media. Nothing can beat the thickness of Vice President Leni Robredo’s face. This is after she said that all the winners of the 2016 elections including President Rodrigo Du30 are affected with Majority Leader Senator Tito Sotto expose. Previously, the Supreme Court already set aside the first course of action on Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest that questions the integrity of the automated poll system of Smartmatic to pave the way for the recount on March 19, 2018. However, Senator Nancy Binay’s resolution on the issue enables the Senate to investigate then the Congress follows suit.

How Different is Fraud?

Robredo said that Sotto’s claims appear to be different from the grounds of her rival, former Senator Bongbong Marcos, in his electoral protest against her victory in the May 2016 polls. Both point out that they have evidence of digital manipulation that only the ruling party at that time is capable of orchestrating. Although, she did not elaborate on the subject.




Favorable to Marcos

Marcos congratulates Senator Sotto for bringing the “election anomalies” to the public. Robredo, on the other hand, proposes an independent body to look into Sotto’s allegations.




The Senate & the Congress VS. the Supreme Court

The co-equal branches of the government seem to be on a power struggle at the moment. Firstly, Senator Tito Sotto III claims in his privilege speech to receive information that the 2016 polls were tainted with irregularities. The early transmissions of votes and alleged proof of “foreign access” in the election servers are among the issues raised. Then, the House Minority Leader Danilo Suarez also laid out the analysis of the cheating reports that coincide with Marcos’ protest. Lastly, the Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno faces an impeachment case. Robredo takes this as a quick way to get rid of her.




One Week Before the Recount

A week prior to the recount set on March 19, 2018. Marcos continues to attend to social invitations from groups that consider him as the legitimate Vice President. Meanwhile, Vice President Robredo tries very hard to bring down with her the President who is in alliance with the Marcoses. The people can only guess the next development.
