It also trashes Robredo’s plea that congress should facilitate COC hearings and clarifies that the SC only has the jurisdiction in any COC questions for the VP and President posts. At the moment, the Marcos camp awaits for the preliminary conference confirmation to be able to set the timeline and agenda for hearings

The position that is under contest is the vice-presidency of the country. Its possessor, once legal is next in line to the presidency. This particular issue of the vice-presidential contest is only at the back of alleged discussions on plots of destabilization against the PresidentDeuterate. The more people want to know who really is the real VP.
The Legitimacy of the Vice Presidency, Marcos or Robredo?
The result of the electoral protest enables the nation to know if the truth is Bongbong Marcos’ claim, or that of Robredo’s. At the end, whoever is the true winner, the nation finally gains a real and legitimate vice-president. Not merely one who is a political prostitute that a political party uses.

Marcos’ lawyer, Atty. Vic Rodriguez is confident that if Robredo’s Camp does not delay the process, once the preliminary conference dates and topics are final, they can proceed to the manual recount of the votes in disputed areas. That can take at least 180 days.
