Pastor Boy Saycon first presented Ka Bert of Iglesia ni Kristo who claimed that the votes of PDu30 were shaved and transferred to Mar Roxas. The biggest reduction affected Bongbong Marcos because around 500,000 of his votes were given to Leni Robredo, he said. Now, he turned over to Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II evidence of corruption involving past administration officials and Liberal Party members in the top posts. This includes PAGCOR anomalies and undeclared election campaign contributions in the SOCE.

Consequences of Incomplete SOCE
Under the rules, the Commission on Elections or Comelec considers incomplete SOCEs as “not filed.” Failing to file the SOCE bars winning candidates from taking office. It is unclear how this applies to winning candidates, who have already taken their oaths of office. Should they step-down from their posts? It is remembered that when LP failed to submit their SOCE on time, Leni Robredo was almost barred from taking her oath of office along with other winning LP candidates – but SC allowed the extension of its filing which many legal experts deemed unlawful. Under the law, candidates who fail to submit their SOCEs on time may face fines, penalties, and perpetual disqualification from holding public office.
LP’s Late Filing Affected Robredo
When LP almost did not file their SOCE, it jeopardized the assumption to office of Vice President-elect Leni Robredo and its other winning candidates. Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez warned that its failure of to submit their reports could have adverse effects on their candidates, especially those who won the elections. Now if these government documents are found to be incomplete then it’s like they did not submit their SOCE which can dismiss them from their posts.
Aguirre Still Need to Study Documents
DOJ Secretary Aguirre during an ambush interview said that he still need to study the documents. He cannot say who are involved in the said corruption or anomalies. This triggers the media to guess how significant Saycon’s revelation is to what is happening at present. VP Robredo continues to attack PDu30’s administration. The first impeachment is filed against the president by a Magdalo Party List representative. There is really a connivance in trying to oust Du30 from the presidency.
Get Rid of Robredo?
On the other hand, Saycon is also with the Binay Camp who campaigns for the Binay-Bongbong Marcos tandem during the 2016 elections. He is also one of the key players of Bihomadu or the Binay, Honasan, Marcos and Du30 alliance. Could this be a way to get rid of Vice President Leni Robredo?
