Supreme Court Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin recently appeals to the public. He says that he understands public perception that Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest versus Leni Robredo seems to be dragging along. He reminds the people He reminds the people that the complaint is not just a simple protest. It has 3 courses of actions – which only one was dismissed.

Supreme Court CJ’s Promise

The Supreme Court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) will release a report “soon” on the initial recount. This is for the 3 provinces in the election protest filed by Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr against Leni Robredo, according to the Chief Justice.

Already Fast Given the Nature

Bersamin said this pace was already considered as “fast.” The process is slow in the public’s perception but you can consider our pace already fast. Even if there is a perception of delay, we are also doing our share from within.

Safeguarding the Credibility of the Processes

“I know the impatience of the public about this case of the Vice President being protested but we should also be careful of what we do here because the credibility of our processes as well as the political system here is at stake, so we are doing things slowly – but we are doing it with sufficient speed,” said Bersamin.

Breaking his Silence

The Supreme Court Chief Justice’s announcement serves as his report to the public on his short tenure. Bersamin is due to mandatorily retire on October 18 this year. He is certainly breaking his silence but his anticipated update on BBM’s protest would definitely make or break his legacy since the case garners great public interest.

  1. another CJ will take over,another delay !

  2. I hope the truth must prevail for the betterment of our country…in God we trust!

    1. It is written: Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. (Leviticus 19:11 kjv)

  3. Proverbs 17:13 Evil will never leave the house of one who pays back evil for good.
    Fear God! Judgement will come to those who are cheaters and liars. If you dont repent your are destined to hell. Hell is real!

  4. Before CJ Bersamin retires in October this year, the PET results of the Protest of BBM should be announced to the Public. Toooo long na rin ang pag-aantay ng mga tao.

  5. That protest is over due 3 years imagine that this is a very important thing to know by the public in manual count during election period it takes only 3 month long why then 3 years is already denying a True justice.

  6. hopefully, sc lucas bersamin will do his country and the people right. it is public knowledge that bbm won the vp race back in may2016.

  7. whoever assumes the CJ post after CJ Bersamin retires, he/she. must uphold the Law without delay and must based his judgement in accordance with the evidence presented and not the person involved. BBM electoral protest is long overdue and people were tired waiting for the result. Evidence presented in the Senate were overwhelming and beyond reasonable doubt that there was indeed an electoral fraud to favor Lugaw Robredo. Not all people are stupid to believed their hokus-pokus and alibis to justify that Robredo legally and fairly won the election.
