Bongbong Marcos loyalists are again staging an overnight prayer vigil from September 25 to 26 at the same Supreme Court grounds as the last event prior to the Preliminary Conference last July. Marcos supporters are hopeful that they can have a glimpse again with the country’s hope for progress. This signals another significant day in his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. Familiar faces of their leaders are seen on the Marcos Facebook pages. This can be a very well-coordinated move as loyalists believe strongly in the power of prayers.

[VIDEO]: Nagsagawa ng prayer vigil para sa katotohanan ang mga Marcos loyalists at supporters sa harap ng Korte Suprema kagabi at binisita ito ni dating Senador Bongbong Marcos (BBM). Ngayong araw, July 11, 2017, kasi gaganapin ang unang preliminary conference ng protesta ni BBM laban kay Leni Robredo. Matatandaang may 263,473 lang na boto ang lamang ni Robredo kay BBM noong May 9, 2016 election at ang nasabing lamang ay bunga daw ng malawakang pandaraya ng Liberal Party, Smartmatic at COMELEC.
The video during the last prayer vigil shows the responses of Bongbong Marcos’ presence in the vigil. Loyalists are happy already to have a glimpse of him. Let alone have a picture with him. This is a manifestation of the believers of the truth. The heart is merry at the slightest sign of humility. A big thing is coming because a sincere prayer never fails.
Mrs. Bautista is not Over with Divina
The estranged wife of Commission on Elections Chairman Andres Bautista sought the disbarment of University of Santo Tomas (UST) Civil Law Dean Nilo Divina. This is almost at the same period as the prayer vigil. It is allegedly for giving payoffs to the poll chief. Bautista’s wife, Patricia divulges that Divina had issued payslips and checks to her husband for allegedly referring clients to the dean’s law firm, DivinaLaw.
She cites a “commission sheet” dated January 2016 that bears the names of lawyers from Divina’s law firm. It counts among its clients Smartmatic, COMELEC’s contractor in the automated elections in 2016. This is related to the first course of Bongbong Marcos’ election protest against Robredo but the Supreme Court set it aside to give way for the recount.
A Prayer is Enough
Mrs. Bautista claims that her husband had undeclared assets amounting to P1 billion. Tagged in her disbarment complaint were 20 other lawyers from DivinaLaw. Divina denies giving payoffs to Bautista and the battle continues between him and Mrs. Bautista. Meanwhile, as Bongbong Marcos lets go of the dismissed first course of action, he concentrates on the recount.
