Presidential Electoral Tribunal or PET of the high court can put an end to the delays to process forward Bongbong Marcos’, electoral protest against Leni Robredo. The frustration of the people over this hanging matter should be attended by the Court’s majestic authority and wisdom. The pro-administration rally in Luneta that calls to get rid of Robredo is the people’s way of showing their getting fed-up over SC’s inactivity.

Delay is a Wrong Strategy
The tribunal’s delayed action is the wrong strategy to follow. To delay the case only puts doubts on the ones responsible for it as their way to remain in the lie that they propagated. The PET has the authority to not allow these falls claims to linger from both sides if there are. SC’s jurisdiction over the matter is needed badly to appease the people.
No Change if Delayed
The delay of the proceedings will not correct the wrong. It will not change the count of the ballots. The lawyers who are into the delaying techniques strategy should be terrified of an unfavorable verdict. It impacts on their legal practice and reputation among others.
VP Legitimacy is Crucial
It is in no doubt that the public and the nation want this issue to be settled immediately. It allows the fully legitimated Vice President to fulfill his service to people and the nation as a whole. Whether it’s Leni Robredo or Bongbong Marcos, people want this contest to end now. May the true and rightful winner be proclaimed in no time.
PET can Settle Dispute
The PET is a momentous one. It can decide to tackle the issue head-on at any time. It can also avoid the responsibility by falling on deaf ears. Avoidance is a disservice to the nation. People want SC to answer their call of duty to the best of their ability with honor that is praiseworthy to the eyes of the Filipinos.
