A group led by former Akbayan party-list led by former Rep. Loretta Ann Rosales have asked the Supreme Court (SC), sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), on Wednesday (Oct. 7) to dismiss the election protest of former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. against Vice President Leni Robredo.

In a letter addressed to the PET, the group led by Rosales called on “the PET to decide and dismiss the protest with finality and uphold the victory of Vice President Robredo in the 2016 elections.”

“By doing so, the PET will allow the true voice of the Filipino people that was heard in the 2016 to fully resonate,” read their letter.

“We call on the PET to once and for all end Mr. Marcos’ electoral fiction,” they reiterated.

The group cited that the PET rules “clearly state that for Marcos’ protest to prosper and expand to other provinces, he should get substantial recovery from the three provinces that he had identified–Iloilo, Camarines Sur, and Negros Oriental.”

“The dictator’s son failed to do these, based on the results of the recount,” they pointed out as they noted that recount of the three provinces showed that Robredo even received 15,093 more votes.

The group believe that “there’s no more reason for the PET to keep this protest going.”

“As the final arbiter of law, the Supreme Court must ensure that all rules are followed to the letter,” they stressed.

The group added that prolonging the electoral protest also “does not benefit anyone except the Marcos family.”

“We are not blind to the fact that his run as Vice President last 2016 elections was one step towards realizing the attempt at the complete political rehabilitation of the Marcos family,” they said.
