Justice Secretary’s Announcement
The “yellows” have intensified its campaign to oust the President, said Aguirre II. “They, the yellows, are intensifying the actions against the President,” Aguirre stresses in his announcement to the media. He said the allegations against the President and his family are part of the opposition’s black propaganda.
Aguirre continued that he created a group composed of lawyers and retired members of the military and police. “Unofficially, I have created a group. This, in my own little way I can help thwart the moves of the opposition to oust the President,” said Aguirre. He refused to give the name of his group but hopes that it will be launched soon.
The Liberal Party said in its response that the party along its allies has always adhered to its core values of integrity and people-centeredness. “These values compel us to speak up on issues such as the drug smuggling and corruption allegations against those close to the President. The murder of minors and innocents by instruments of the state, among others,” the LP added.
The Essence of the Initial Recount for the Protest
The priority recount aims to prove whether or not the rest of Marcos’ protest has merit. Bongbong Marcos said that it is about to start in November. It is expected to be completed in December this year. Can the LP be concerned that if the President is not ousted now prior to the recount, Bongbong Marcos is likely the next President of the Philippines?
