Just as when COMELEC starts to cooperate with the details of Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Leni Robredo, she once again submitted a motion for reconsideration as a delaying tactic to stay in power longer. This triggers Marcos to response to PET urging SC to set the preliminary conference without delay.

[VIDEO]: Isinumite na ng kampo ni dating Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos ang kaniyang reply sa motion ni Vice President Leni Robredo na pumipigil sa Korte Suprema na magsagawa ng preliminary conference sa electoral protest na isinampa ng dating senador sa Presidential Electoral Tribunal.
Junk Robredo’s Appeal
Bongbong Marcos asks the Supreme Court or SC that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal or PET, to implement its ruling last January to allow his poll protest against Leni Robredo to proceed. Marcos urges the PET to junk Robredo’s appeal. He refers to it as another delaying or dilatory tactic to stay longer in power illegally.
Bongbong Marcos to Robredo: Stop False Claims
Marcos warns Robredo that she cannot keep on claiming that she won the elections honestly and “yet, behind everyone’s back, she keeps on stopping the truth to come out.” Robredo’s lawyer Romulo Macalintal earlier denied they use dilatory tactics but actions speak louder than words.
PET Should Set the Preliminary Conference
The PET previously junked Robredo’s bid to dismiss Marcos’ poll protest for issues that have been resolved by Congress, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers or NBOC. The tribunal ruled that it has jurisdiction over the case and the protest was sufficient in form and substance. It takes into account the narrations of real facts on the alleged irregularities and anomalies in questionable clustered precincts.
Marcos now calls on the PET to order the immediate collection, retrieval, transport and delivery of all ballot boxes from all 36,465 clustered precincts and set the case for preliminary conference to start the recount at the soonest possible time. COMELEC just needs the direction of PET on how and when this could be facilitated.
