Robredo’s camp urges PET to junk Bongbong’s electoral protest: Si Leni lang ang VP!
The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo believes that the Supreme Court (SC), sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), should dismiss the electoral protest of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. against her.
Lawyer Romulo Macalintal, Robredo’s legal counsel, pointed this out as the PET has already concluded the recount of the three pilot provinces of Iloilo, Negros Occidental, and Camarines Sur in connection with the electoral protest.
“Sa kaso ni Vice President Leni Robredo, meron kaming ebidensya, nadagdagan pa nga iyong boto namin, 15,000 votes,” Macalintal said about the results of the recount of the pilot provinces.
“Sabi namin, dapat ma-dismiss na iyan,” he pointed out.
The lawyer expressed concerns about rumors that the electoral protest will still push through despite the results being in favor of Robredo.
“Parang hindi ata tama iyan dahil sa ilalim ng rules, ‘pag wala kang nakita sa tatlong probinsya, idi-dismiss iyan,” he stressed.
The PET has already deferred ruling for the third time on the results of the recounts of the pilot provinces.
“Bakit ang pinakamataas pang korte ang mukhang ayaw, hindi gagamit ng nasabing rules,” he lamented.
