The camp of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. lauded the decision of the Supreme Court (SC) sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) for issuing rules and guidelines in preparation for the revision of ballots in his election protest.

“We hope that this will expedite the process so this issue can be settles once and for all,” said Marcos spokesperson, lawyer Victor Rodriguez, in a statement.

“The Filipino people deserve to know their real Vice President is,” he stressed.

Since it was filed before the PET in June 2016, Rodriguez lamented the election protest has already suffered many delays “because the other party keeps opposing our moves to open the ballots.”

“We cannot wait for the actual process to start because it is the only way we’ll be able to ferret the truth,” he stated.

“We have always maintained that the ballots themselves are the best evidence in any election protest. This is the reason why we have always pushed for the early revision of ballots,” he explained.

In a five-page resolution dated August 8, the PET prescribed the rules including the composition, screening and hiring of members of the Revision Committees, the creation of an Exploratory Mission or Retrieval Team as well as the compensation of those who will eventually take part in the actual revision of ballots.
