Leni Robredo’s lead counsel Romulo Macalintal is bashed via social media when he said that the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) cannot finish the recount of all election results being questioned in six years time. He added that this is not due to the process only but also because of weak evidence against his client. However, Pastor Boy Saycon from the Binay Camp made sure that they have concrete evidence of the electoral fraud before making noises via the senate.

Macalintal vs Saycon
As of this point, it is a matter of credibility between Saycon and Macalintal. While the latter is known for talking too much just to defend his client, Saycon is noted for being a prominent kingmaker who is kind at heart. He seldom talks but when he does, it’s always based on personal knowledge.
Credible in the Senate
Former Senator Sergio Osmeña III and Senator Vicente Sotto sais that the witnesses of Saycon seem credible. Osmeña even gave hints on the government position of the alleged LP official being implicated by the whistle-blowers as someone who is holding a position in the Cabinet during the Aquino administration.
Netizens are Furious
Pro-Marcos netizens swear that if Robredo is not gone within this year, they will take the matter into their own hands. This threat can be translated only into more anti-Robredo rallies or demonstrations.
Supreme Court Questioned
It is very noticeable that the Supreme Court is very lenient on Robredo. They attend to her every motion for reconsiderations even if it made them look incompetent. The recent straw is when she failed to pay the P8 M deposit for her counter protest. Marcos’ camp says that the protest must be dismissed. The people await SC’s decision on this.
