Why would Caguioa Issue the BBM Electoral Protest Report with Unknown Results?

BBM



By: Elena Grace Flores
The Supreme Court announces that Associate Justice Benjamin Caguioa submits his report on the result of the pilot recount.This is Bongbong Marcos’ poll protest against Leni Robredo. However, no on can tell the actual status of the recount in Marcos’ pilot provinces. The presumptive VP claims her victory earlier. Since it’s only now that the report is final, then it’s really a mind-conditioning effort on her part. BBM slams her for such misleading claim.

The Disgust of BBM Over Robredo’s Action

BBM hits the camp of Vice President Leni Robredo for claiming early victory in the electoral protest he filed after the 2016 vice presidential race. “We are appalled once more by the brazenness of Mrs. Robredo and her Liberal Party in claiming victory in my still ongoing election protest just as the tribunal announced that no action has been taken by the court on the Caguioa report,” Marcos said in a statement.



Caguioa’s Secret Results

Marcos issues the statement after Caguioa submits to the Supreme Court. It sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET). His report covers the result of the pilot recount from three pilot provinces that Marcos cited in his electoral protest. However, both parties cannot divulge any information about it.


No Action Yet from PET

“Clearly, there has been a concerted effort to intimidate and coerce the Tribunal with their underhanded mind conditioning tactics,” Marcos said. Lawyer Brian Keith Hosaka, the high court’s public information chief, clarifies that the Tribunal “has not taken any action yet on the said report.”


The Next Step is Due

Marcos said he has also yet to receive any formal notice or decision from the PET regarding the issue. “We assure the Tribunal of our commitment to abide by the subjudice rule as what we have always done,” the former senator said. Atty. Romulo Macalintal, legal counsel for Robredo, also said that the report would determine the next step of the protest.

  1. If the protest proceeds to the next cause of action, meaning, the first that has been finished was with probable cause, signs of manipulation of the election are so clear, thus, will go to the next probe, the one in ARMM.

  2. I think and anticipate that the results outcome would be favorable to bbm on one side but more favorable to leni on the other. It’s like this. PET will declare a substantial evidence to declare there’s cheating on the three pilot provinces chosen by bbm. On that note the PET would then decide that they will now commence the recount of the other 24 provinces. You see 24 provinces would take eternity to finish. No need to elaborate.
