Vice President Leni Robredo acts as if she does not know where Bongbong Marcos’ evidence of poll fraud comes from. She even wonders how he got hold of the alleged tampered ballots when they are not in Manila yet for the recount. Sadly, the VP seems to have no idea that the soft copies given by PET to Marcos can be encrypted. Rappler comes to her rescue and explains things like the ovals in the original ballots are deliberately printed in red for them to be invisible to the VCMs. That’s why in some ballots, only the squares are visible because they have not satisfied the 25% shade intensity requirement. Rappler stresses that the Comelec should completely, patiently, and publicly disclose all changes to the voting system to avoid Marcos from crying foul. The yellow media and Robredo clearly show that they do not have a clue on Smartmatic’s mandate to scan the exact replica of the ballots inserted into the VCMs to prevent anyone from cheating especially during election 2016.

Soft Copies of Images are Supposed to be the Exact Replica
Robredo can’ be that dumb that thee soft copies both camps go from PET are what Marcos is talking about. The photographs or images of the scanned ballots inserted into the VCMs for reading must be identical. If they are not so, this feature that Smartmatic is proud about is useless. They must be the exact replica of the naked eye to easily point out alterations if ever.
The spread of Propaganda?
The defensive VP refers to the “shocking” anomalies pointed out by Marcos as propaganda. She said that they are not evidence of cheating but are just new features or improvements in the automated voting system. Marcos can never understand this because of such mandate of Smartmatic. He also has some confirmations that those changes are not transparent. That is clearly a violation of the digital election 2016 machine provider’s agreement with the COMELEC.
PCOS’ Choice Indeed
Marcos earlier explained that many ballots from Camarines Sur contain square boxes beside her name instead of the oval that voters needed to shade. All these mages with squares beside Robredo’s name are counted in her favor. Rappler tries to justify that a market that they fall short of the minimum amount of shade in the oval which the VCM will admit. It does not make sense, however, that the invalid votes still went to Robredo just the same.
PET Investigation Request
Robredo’s lawyer Romulo Macalintal said that the Commission on Elections and the Supreme Court that act as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal must investigate Marcos over his acquisition of the perceived tampered ballot images. Marcos hit them back by urging them to stop disrespecting the PET since it is his sours. He moves on with a challenge that both camps must stop all their motion for a swift recount.
