As world leaders arrive one after the other for the 31st ASEAN Summit in Manila, the supporters of Bongbong Marcos have nowhere to resort to when it comes to getting updates on his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo. Most media channels are tuned into the big event. Nevertheless, it is evident on the former Senator’s website that something vital is cooking. A video compilation of the protest’s series of events from the 2016 elections campaign to the poll fiasco is reviewed. The question is: Do you really believe that there was no massive cheating during the last national poll?

Clark Airport Arrivals
Laos Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, Indonesian President Joko Widodo, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, Vietnam Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and dialogue partners Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull have all arrived at the Clark airport in Pampanga.
Arrivals at NAIA include Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, South Korean President Moon Jae-In, and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang. Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev also followed. The presence of United States President Donald Trump already grabs headlines.
Protest Update Prior to the Big Time Arrivals
The Supreme Court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal earlier ruled that the Commission on Elections must pay for the storage fees of election materials kept in foreign posts. In a 6-page decision dated October 10, the PET denied the Comelec’s petition to request that the storage fees be charged to Marcos whose electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo is still ongoing. It awaits the SC’s recount date.
Essence of the Video
Judging from news reports on Marcos’ somewhat impossible defeat as they happen, one can immediately conclude that he probably lost because of some dirtiest ever election fraud techniques. The COMELEC chair’s resignation is not enough to let him get away from all these. Even the impeachment of the SC Chief Justice may have also caused some delays to the proceeding. Two other recounts are ongoing before Marcos’ case is taken up. In spite of the uncertainties, a countdown is ignited coupled with teasers for a bright future as far as the late Former President Ferdinand Marcos’ namesake is concerned.
