Red During Overnight Vigil
The passionate loyalists wear the official color of the Marcos camp which is red. This signifies their undying flame in seeking for the truth. Bongbong in return did not fail in thanking them for their efforts. He made it a point to grace their vigil.
The Marcos camp was earlier criticized by its opponent for changing the 3 pilot provinces for the recount to Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. They were made to believe that they will go for the disputed MILF region. 362 witnesses are ready for the shortlisting process. It is expected that the election protest proceedings will be tedious and complicated given the numerous issues of alleged fraudulent activities that Robredo vowed to defend.
Precincts for Protest
In Marcos’ motion, he asks the PET to order the decryption and printing of the ballot images from the SD cards used in the 36,465 clustered precincts contested in his protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. Robredo’s lawyers reiterated to challenge him to prove first that the digital election process was fraudulent, as per the first part of his protest.
Marcos dropped by at the vigil and said that the time has come for the people to know the right number of vote counts, who really excel, and finally who is the real winner for the 2016 election Vice Presidential race. It is at the Prelim that the issues are simplified for a speedier process. His supporters are praying for the Supreme Court’s fairness in officiating the recount.
