Favorite among Bicolanos?
Marcos’ camp just could not believe that Robredo obtained 643,865 votes to Marcos’ 40,195 votes. There are also other Bicolano candidates like Senator Francis Escudero, Alan Peter Cayetano, Senator Antonio Trillanes, and Senator Gregorio Honasan, whose mother is from Sorsogon who only got 7,005 votes, to begin with.
Lawyer Victor Rodriguez explained that the three pilot provinces are chosen because they clearly show major discrepancies in the votes cast on the ballots. Those were then transmitted by the Vote Counting Machines (VCMs) and reported in the Certificates of Canvass (COCs).
Improbable 80% Vote for Robredo
Rodriguez stressed that even if Camarines Sur is the hometown of Robredo, it is highly improbable that she got in excess of 80 percent votes when all of the other vice presidential candidates are either from the Bicol Region or had family ties in the region.
Questionable Iloilo and Negros Oriental
In Iloilo, it is a surprise that Robredo obtained 573,729 votes against Marcos’ 94,411 votes. His running mate, the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, was from the province. They were warmly received by the Hiligaynons during their sorties there. Negros Oriental was also chosen because Robredo’s 248,102 votes against Marcos’ 99,208 votes are questionable. Consider the fact that Marcos’ supporter there are the biggest political families in the area.
