Bongbong Marcos responds to Erwin Tulfo’s question about the update of the electoral protest that the Supreme Court already made necessary preparations for the recount. The PET also orders to retrieve the ballot boxes from the pilot provinces identified by Marcos. He basically expects the recount to start in November. That should produce a result already in December 2017.

Smartmatic Pays Bautista
The signed affidavit of Patricia Bautista, estranged wife of COMELEC Chair, Andres Bautista that says he indeed receives a fee from Smartmatic is already against the law. This fact alone already gives an impression to the public that there was indeed manipulation in the 2016 election results.
First Course of Action Not Relevant to Protest
Since the PET already ruled that the first course of action in Marcos’ electoral protest against Robredo is not relevant anymore to the recount, Bautista’s case can just die down. The focus is already on the wait for the start of the recount. November is fast-approaching so, the people are anxious for it to start. This is with the hope that at the end of the year, the case is resolved. That the real winner for the VP post can already assume by 2018.
Bloody Drug War
Marcos also explains why the President’s drug war is quite bloody. He said that the streets are already tainted with blood even before the start of the drug war. Naturally, it takes a bloody method to stop a bloody crime. It’s a choice between the criminals and the authorities to perish.
The OFWS are important to the economy of the country. There is an indication that the enemies of the administration are using their influence to discredit the President. The series of deaths among teenagers who are mostly children of OFWs follow a pattern that can create hatred among overseas contract workers to the President. The September 21 rally at the Luneta against the administration also follows the same procedure when the detractors of the late President Ferdinand Marcos staged violent events to blame them to the Marcos regime.
