Supreme Court

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos’ Supreme Court motion to assign 3 hearing officers is mocked by Leni Robredo’s camp. This is for the 3 issues stated in his electoral protest. They call it impractical. It is allegedly premature for SC to hear that plea since there are still lots of priority resolutions that are pending. Most of them would delay the process which is Robredo’s ultimate intention.

[VIDEO]: The camp of former Senator Bongbong Marcos is asking the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, to designate hearing officers to assist in the conduct of the preliminary conference.

From the VP Camp

Vice President Leni Robredo camp said that the request ofBongbong Marcos to have three hearing officers in the preliminary conference on his poll protest is “impractical” and also “premature.”


Veteran election lawyer of the Robredo, Romulo Macalintal explained that the three causes of action presented by the Marcos camp are all interconnected. “These issues are all interconnected. It is improper for three hearing officers to resolve the said issues separately,” Macalintal argued.

Mind Conditioning

Macalintal accuses Marcos of preempting the PET’s action in filing the urgent motion. He insists that the tribunal must rule first if it sustains the 3 causes of action. “Without the preliminary conference, the motion to have three Hearing Officers is practically intended to condition the minds of the people. That has the same effect with the members of the PET. Macalintal thinks that Marcos seems to dictate the tribunal.

Stop the Delay

George Erwin Garcia, Marcos lawyer states that each cause of action presents a specific set of witness and evidence. It is better to have one separate hearing officer for each one them. The Supreme Court should have the discretion to schedule the hearings closely to each other but not at the same time – which can contradict Macalintal’s theory.
