A week after protesters led by actress, Vivian Velez gathered in front of Leni Robredo’s head office in Quezon City that demand for her impeachment or resignation, it looks like the COMELEC got busy. For this week alone, Bongbong Marcos received no less than four (4) Notices from the COMELEC with regards to the electoral protest filed against Robredo.

[VIDEO]: Giit ng actress na si Vivian Velez, sinisira ni Leni Robredo ang imahe ng bansa. Dpaty syang iimpeach kahit di sya kinikilalang tunay na Bise Presidente.

Small but Dedicated Group

Four people showed handwritten “Leni Resign”, “Leni Resign ASAP Pls” and “Oust Leni Now” signs, while another protester held a larger “Impeach Leni Resign” tarpaulin. The protesters doubled in number within less than an hour. Actress Vivian Velez arrived with four other people. The number of people who participated in the rally is rounded to 10 based on photographs but each person was a representative of their own pro-Marcos group.

Not Acceptable as VP but must be Impeached

Vivian Velez explains that even if their groups do not acknowledge Leni Robredo as Vice president, she has to be impeached because she has destroyed the image of the country. Velez refers to the video sent by Robredo to a side event of a UN conference saying wrong things about the president’s drug war.

Four Notices Received by Bongbong Marcos

1. Notice regarding the decryption of SD cards and other election data in San Antonio, Northern Samar;

2. Notice with respect to the election closure activities conducted at the COMELEC warehouse in Sta. Rosa, Laguna:

1) Release of VCM external batteries on 21 March 2017;
2) Stripping of unused CCS kits on 21 March 2017;
3) Stripping of used CCS kits on 27 March 2017;
4) Back-up of VCM SD cards and used CCS kits on 27 March 2017.

3. Notice informing the Supreme Court that all requests for election-related data in Siruma, Camarines Sur be addressed to the RTC concerned since the latter now has possession of the requested files.

4. Endorsement letter addressed to the PET regarding the inventory, retrieval, and delivery of election-related data in Toledo City, Cebu.
