Must Review the Electoral Protest Processes
The 3 years delay only shows that there’s a need to revisit the electoral protest processes that seem to have loopholes. The protestant is not at all protected, Marcos said. Nevertheless, he’s just thankful that the fight is far from over as claimed by his opponent.
Big Reason to be Jolly
Marcos admits that defeating Caguioa’s efforts to dismiss his case is already a big victory in itself. He cannot hide his jolly mood in front of the press representatives. He vows to show all the evidences that his defeat was due to massive fraud orchestrated by the sitting VP or her influencers.
Trust the Justices
The former senator urges the public to trust the wisdom of the justices. When it is true that the whole procedure is not advantageous to the electoral process itself, the voters or even to the whole political system, he is still thankful to see his agenda through. The essence of the recent PET decision is for his protest to continue and that is the most important thing, he added.
Bongbong Marcos Thanks his Supporters
Since it’s a knock-out score versus Caguioa who heads the committee for his case, Marcos is thankful to the sacrifices of his supporters who are on vigil at the Supreme Court grounds whenever such event happens. What happens today overcomes the difficulties in the last 3 years. He stresses that the loyalists are the ones who are giving him the fighting spirit to continue his quest. As for Robredo, his lawyers will take care of her camp who steals his place as Vice President.
