Bongbong Marcos has a valid point why he includes Camarines Sur considered as Liberal Party Bailiwick where Bicol is also the hometown of Leni Robredo as the priority in the election manual recount. This is because most of the VP candidates come from the province and not just the questionable VP.

Robredo calls Marcos desperate when he submits three provinces to show fraud or irregularities in his protest brief. He included Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. Rodriguez questioned how Robredo got over 1.49 million votes in the three provinces. Marcos got only 200,000 votes. Where are the votes for Escudero and Honasan?
Marcos’ camp is confident to show how Robredo drastically reduced Marcos’ more than one million votes lead. She ended up with only 263,473 votes advantage over Marcos. They are willing to face the consequence that the case might be dismissed if all votes are accounted for in those areas mentioned.
Election Manual Recount
The manual recount is the only solution seen to appease voters who voted for Marcos as their preference for Vice President. It is remembered that despite running against Marcos, Senator Gregorio Honasan endorsed him as his VP candidate. This prompted most Binay supporters to vote for Marcos instead of Hnonasan. Vice President Jejomar Binay was the running mate of Honasan who garnered more than 5 million votes instead of the expected over 10 million votes.
Three-man Panel of Commissioners
Marcos’ plea to assign 3 commissioners for the electoral protest was granted by the Supreme Court. Chairman Vitug leads the panel with Imperio and Guevarra on board. Guevarra was with the defense team of the late Chief Justice Renato Corona during his impeachment trial.
