Even the late Comelec Chair Sixto Brilliantes said that the PET must decide on Marcos’ Annulment of Votes
Annulment of Votes by the PET
This is what the late Comelec Chair, Sixto Brilliantes said on the annulment of votes. The poll agency does not have jurisdiction over the case because there’s no failure of the election. Bongbong Marcos did not file for it. He asks to eliminate the vote counts. The Supreme Court must act on it, he added. This can wipe out Leni Robredo’s lead over Marcos. The new Vice President should take her place.
The Comelec’s Response
THE Commission on Elections informs the Supreme Court that it has the power and jurisdiction for the Annulment of Elections in the Mindanao provinces in cases where there is massive fraud as in the protest filed by former senator Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo.
Instead of making a decision right away, the ponente of the case, Associate Justice Marvic Leonen asks for comments on both sides. Then he promises to do something about the protest after the holidays. This is a perfect case of justice delayed, justice denied.
