The Supreme Court (SC) sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) has junked the petition of former Senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr. to have the ballots in three provinces under Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) subjcted to technical examination.

In its ruling, the PET remain unswayed to grant the Marcos motion for reconsideration to change its August 29 resolution not to conduct technical examination of ballots in Lanao del Sur, Basilan, and Maguindanao.

“Thus, the Tribunal’s resolution dated Aug. 29, 2017 to defer action on protestant’s motion for technical examination stands given the reasons stated therein,” the PET ruled.

The Marcos motion for reconsideration was opposed by the camp of Vice President Leni Robredo.

Robredo’s lawyers pointed out the PET already designated three pilot provinces–Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental–as pilot provinces where initial recounting will be made to determine if the Marcos poll protest has merit.
