Wag kasi matulog! Robredo camp tells Bongbong: You’d know she won if you’re awake


The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo has a piece of advice for former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos: stop taking naps.

“Natulog lang ako lamang na? Wag kang matutulog,” said said her chief counsel, lawyer Romulo Macalintal, on Tuesday (February 13).

Macalintal maintains there was nothing irregular during the counting of the 2016 polls when Marcos got overtaken by Robredo.

“Kung hindi sya natulong, malalaman nya na dumadating na ang boto sa mga balwarte ni Robredo,” Macalintal said.

Recently, Marcos questioned the square features introduced in the ballot images and placed next to Robredo’s name.

However, Macalintal said this feature has already been explained by the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

“The squares enclosing the votes are a new feature of the 2016 elections. These squares capture those markings that meet the minimum 25 percent threshold set by Comelec,” he explained.

“This was discussed by Comelec during a briefing attended by different political parties before the election. Hindi sila umattend tapos sasabihin nila kalokohan po yun,” Macalintal pointed out.
