The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo has laughed off the allegations of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. that there is proof massive poll fraud in Camarines Sur and Negros Oriental during the 2016 elections.
“This is a laughing matter. It made me laugh,” said Robredo’s legal counsel, lawyer Romulo Macalintal, on Tuesday (January 30).
“If laughter is the best medicine, then we can consider this as the best medicine for us today,” the lawyer said.
Marcos claimed on Monday (January 29) that poll fraud have been discovered based on some of the soft copies of the ballots images which were secured from the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) from some of the clustered precincts in several towns in Camarines Sur and Negros Oriental.
However, Macalintal believes what Marcos may have presented could have been “fabricated or manufactured”.
Because of this, Macalintal urged the PET and the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to look into Marcos’ allegations.
