Just after Mocha Uson, the president’s avid supporter call on the people to join the “Palit Bise” Rally at the Luneta Park last April 2, 2017, many PRRD-BBM or the president’s and Bongbong Marcos’ supporters were hesitant speculating that they wanted Senator Allan Peter Cayetano to take over the Vice Presidency instead of the alleged real winner of the 2016 VP race, Bongbong Marcos. It turn out, this is not the case.

[VIDEO]: Many supporters of the PRRD-BBM tandem did not join the April 2 pro-administration rally because they are not clear of their choice for VP replacement.
Jimmy Bondoc Clarifies the Purpose of the Rally
One of the organizers of the recent pro-administration rally Jimmy Bondoc clarifies that they want to call not just the resignation or impeachment of Leni Robredo who bad-mouths the government only. Their call extends to presidential appointees also who are giving the president a bad name. If they cannot perform according to the high standard of the president, they should resign, according to Bondoc.
No Mention of Du-Cay or PRRD-BBM but Trillanes
There was no mention of the group’s preference at all as to who is the likable replacement of Leni Robredo, Cayetano or Marcos. Just one critic who puts his criticisms against Senator Antonio Trillanes IV who is dubbed as the barking dog of the senate into a rap. He is known to humiliate political enemies to discredit them using hearsays or false testimonies. The president is one of his victims.
BBM does not Benefit from VP Impeachment
Bongbong Marcos is not the direct beneficiary once Leni Robredo is impeached. Senator Koko Pimentel is next in line followed by House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez. Neither of them had the support of the majority. People are pushing for the immediate recount as requested by Bongbong Marcos through his electoral protest against Leni Robredo.
Binay, Honasan, Marcos Supporters are Missing from Rally
The “Palit Bise” rally could be massive if the supporters of Binay, Honasan, and Marcos made it there. Since the organizers were not clear from the beginning of their choice of replacement, then people are divided. They can only assume that they want to drag Cayetano as the president’s running mate – but this seems to be not the case because – by law, Cayetano cannot just be appointed by the president because first, his obvious choice is Marcos then secondly, his not within the line of succession. Nevertheless, the “Palit Bise” rally was a success in its own rights.
