Supreme Court Action Needed Prior to the Elections
The Marcos loyalists were in read holding protest banners and chanting; justice for Bongbong Marcos, the real Vice President. This comes as many people became aware of the Comelec’s mishandling of the election processes. Such irregularities allow entities to cheat during the polls in connivance with Smartmatic or the election agency itself.
Pending Resolutions of the VP Electoral Protest
The camp of Marcos patiently awaits the decision of the Supreme Court after the recount in the 3 pilot provinces. These are; Negros Oriental, Iloilo, and Robredo’s bailiwick, Camarines Sur. They must decide if the evidence has probable cause to be able to continue to the rest of the questionable precincts. The former Senator also asks for technical examination in the ARMM region where Comelec itself found that 80% of the voters were fake during the 2016 elections.
Mind Conditioning of the Opposition Not Working
Surveys, news through mainstream media, and Facebook public sentiments control are all in place. However, it is very obvious that the people are coming up with alternatives to express their disappointments over the PET or the slow handling of the Supreme Court with regards to Marcos’ protest. Voters are now very vigilant with the slightest Comelec mismanagement.
The Comelec’s Incompetence in Handling the Election
Social media reports from common voters overseas populate social media pages. There are even videos and images that support questionable processes imposed by the Comelec at the overseas precincts. The UK, Italy, and Hongkong overseas Filipinos workers are seen to be very active on these activities recently.
Initial Street Protest for Marcos’ Return
It is a popular discussion over Facebook groups if and when Marcos would urge his supporters to do a people power-like saga in front of the Supreme Court. Notwithstanding his sister, Imee Marcos’ popularity during the senatorial race overseas and the ever popular president’s support, this is not impossible.
