Cannot Wait for the Recount
Rodriguez cannot hide his excitement upon receiving the resolution from the PET. He commented; “We cannot wait for the actual process to start because it is the only way we’ll be able to ferret the truth. We have always maintained that the ballots themselves are the best evidence in any election protest. This is the reason why we have always pushed for the early revision of ballots.
Suffering from Delays
Rodriguez added; We have suffered many delays because the other party keeps opposing our moves to open the ballots. 1 year and 3 months have already gone by. We hope that this will expedite the process so this issue can be settled once and for all. The Filipino people deserve to know their real Vice President is.”
Vacancies at PET
PET ordered the Office of the Acting Chief Administrative Officer to post the vacancies for the members of the Revision Committees. They now accept applications for the staffing complement. The Acting Clerk of the Tribunal will also screen the applicants for the position of Coordinators of the Revision Committee.
Exploratory Mission of the Supreme Court
The Tribunal created an Exploratory Mission that will locate and examine all ballot boxes in the contested provinces and cities. This is to facilitate their retrieval and transport to the Supreme Court compound for the said revision. As members of the team, the Tribunal designates the following SC employees: Attys. Mercedes Mostajo and Linuel Alindogan of the Office of the Chief Attorney as leaders; Joy Jemima Reyes and Jeffrey Raymond Atienza of the Cash Collection and Disbursement Division as Special Disbursing Officers; and Joery Gayanan. They will each receive a compensation of P5,000 monthly.
