VP Leni Robredo’s lawyer Romulo Macalintal tries to keep his cool upon knowing that SC paves the way of Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against his client. He maintains that it is only a procedural matter and Marcos still has to prove if there’s indeed fraud in the 2016 elections. Enough to his lies, he does not have to urge Marcos what to do next. They for sure know what to do next. Sets of evidence are intact and they are ready for hearings.

[VIDEO]: MANILA – The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo is unfazed by the latest developments in the election protest filed by defeated vice- presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
Macalintal confronts himself knowing that the COC and ballot counts take time. This case is definitely a long process. This is the reason why the president appoints Bongbong Marcos as DILG secretary – to make use of his brilliance while waiting for the electoral protest to finish. It is speculated that Marcos assumes the post after May 10, this year. Robredo expresses her fear in having Marcos in the administration’s cabinet.
SC’s Discovery that Made them Favor Marcos
The protest contains narrations of ultimate facts on the alleged irregularities and anomalies in the contested clustered precincts. However, Marcos needs to prove in due time,” the PET discloses.
Macalintal Previously on the Other Side with Legarda
Macalintal is also the lawyer of Senator Loren Legarda who contests the VP win of her friend, former Vice President Noli de Castro. He says that the cases are different because the older case lacks merit. Obviously, with all the boxes of concrete evidence in the Marcos electoral protest with matching live witnesses and affidavits, it’s only a matter of time that Bongbong Marcos unseats VP Robredo.
SC Gives the Green Light to Marcos’ Electoral Protest
Despite SC’s green light on Marcos’ protest, the president makes preparations for Marcos’ entry into the Cabinet. Current DILG Secretary Ismael Sueno is also not bothered by reports that Marcos replaces him. He serves at the pleasure of the President which is very noble.
