The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo has again asked the Supreme Court (SC), sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), segregate ballots which have ovals shaded bellow 50 percent but still above 25 percent.

Her camp made the appeal in a motion she submitted Friday (August 3) while the PET has yet to act on her petition to set the threshold of shaded ballots at 25 percent.

In her motion, her camp asked the PET to direct the head revisors to “segregate the ballots containing shades below 50 percent but within the 25 percent in the physical count.”

The PET has already started conducting a manual recount of the ballots from the 2016 vice presidential polls based on the electoral protest of former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. who claimed he should have won and not Robredo.

However, the PET set the threshold of valid ballots at 50 percent which Robredo appealed to set at 25 percent.

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has already filed before the PET its comment on the appeal of Robredo and has backed her position that the threshold should be set at 25 percent.

“Without preempting the Honorable Tribunal, considering the categorical pronouncements and clarifications made by COMELEC in its Comment, Robredo asks that these ballots containing shades below fifty percent (50%) but within twenty five percent (25%) be not considered stray,” Robredo’s motion read.
