Bongbong Marcos urges the Supreme Court once again to treat the recount on his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo as important as an election. He awaits since September the date that the PET has to set. Marcos also clarifies in an interview that his previous estimate on the manual count which is up to 2 to 3 months starts only from the SC’s official date if it is undertaken promptly.
[VIDEO]: Bongbong Marcos explains the 3 courses of actions in the electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo and the 2 to 3 months time frame for the recount.
Estimate Clarification on Recount
In an interview, Marcos reiterates that his 2 to 3 months estimate is applicable only from the official recount date that the Supreme Court still has to decide on. He expects it on 50 tables, that should be done within two months. The Presidential Electoral Tribunal or PET already has a team to locate and retrieve ballot boxes from the contested areas. However, the actual retrieval can’t be done by COMELEC yet due to 2 other protests. One of which is the Cebu mayoral race.
Cebu Recount Justify the Discrepancy Trend
Robredo’s victory only has a slim margin of 263,473 votes over Marcos. The Protestant’s camp wants the PET to recount first the ballot boxes in Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental. Once a discrepancy is noted in these pilot areas, a decision to continue or not can be drawn for the conclusion. In fact, anomalies are already seen in the Cebu manual count for Michael Rama’s electoral protest against the incumbent mayor. They are confident more than ever that in the 3 pilot provinces alone, Marcos can already have around one million votes lead.
Reaction from Robredo’s Camp
Atty Bernadette Sardillo argues that 3 months is too short to get this done and over with. That span of time is almost over already since the High Court pronounces that it is in the Tribunal’s best interest to give Marcos’ electoral protest a speedy treatment. However, it asks patience because this is one case that is unique among the previous protests.
SC on Holiday Mood Already
Inquiries on the recount are now only through social media. Since Christmas is fast approaching, government officials tend to stay away from their regular mandate. By now, they are probably switching to the planning of holiday events. The Marcos camp can’t do anything much but wait for what the New Year can bring on their case.
By accident VP Leni Robredo emerges into power after the mysterious death of her husband. However, the obvious digital fraud during the 2016 election made her the balancing factor of the Marcos stigma. Her slim victory of only a little over 200,000 votes did not help either. In fact, it becomes the gauge that the alleged Martial Law atrocities have no more effect on her rival, Bongbong Marcos. Surveys in her favor become unbelievable. So, even if the recount favors her, she is likened to the unfortunate ordeal of Angeline Fernando. She fell into the railway tracks of the MRT’s Ayala station on November 14. Her right arm was cut off, although it was sewn back successfully, it can’t be as normal as before.
Bongbong Marcos earlier commented in an interview that the contradicting survey results which are just a week apart can only trigger confusions. This is seen as a destabilization propaganda by many. Some kind of mind-conditioning effort to compare the President’s performance with the Vice President which is a no match thing.
MRT Victim’s Positive Development
In a positive light, surgeons successfully reattached the severed arm of Fernando. Transportation Undersecretary Cesar Chavez said that 24-year-old Fernando’s operation is successful. She is under observation at the Makati Medical Center.
Emergency Medical Bill
Kabayan Representative Ron Salo, who files House Bill 4955 that seeks to create a national emergency medical services system, said he would move to rename the proposed law’s short title. “The Dr. Charlie Jandic Emergency Medical Services System Act of 2017” is to be the full title. This is once the House committee on health tackles the measure. Jandic, an intern at the Chinese General Hospital, assists Fernando all throughout her ordeal.
The President’s Hand on Marcos’ Protest
It is evident during the ASEAN that Robredo had no official function as the second highest leader of the country. Political analysts see this as a manifestation that the Du30 administration is confident that she won’t survive in the political scene. The President’s fondness over Marcos can’t be denied. However, the ruling on the electoral protest against her can’t happen that quick as Du30 tries to adhere to the law. Just like Jandic’s role in the life-saving procedure. People can just shout for recount to help facilitate that at the soonest possible time. Robredo could end up like an imperfect hand if not dysfunctional if she stays.
Bongbong Marcos said it himself that he is very lucky to be a Marcos. He thinks that the Philippines would have been a better country had it not been for the Edsa event in 1986. He talks confidently about his political strategies and his father’s legacy because he knows his father’s plan for the Philippines. This includes the wealth for humanity and how it can be used for the good of the people. It is highly secured by their patriarch that prevented looters from gaining access to it.

A Wealth Keeper than a Dictator
The Marcos name remained one of his strongest assets of Bongbong Marcos. He has nothing to apologize for as far as the presidential stint of his father is concerned. His family’s remarkable political resurrection has nothing to do with wanting money or power. They have a mission to reinstate the conditions planned by the late President for his beloved country. He was not a dictator as what detractors insist upon. He just wanted the best for his people.
Detractors were Rewriting History
Since the late Marcos was toppled in 1986. So much lies were thrown by the media to the world. However, the truth always prevails. The three-decade wait is already very long for justice to finally materialize. The family is indeed set to make a difference. Not just in the country but also to the world. History will correct itself as the mysteries unfold.
He Knows his Father’s Plan
The son of the greatest President of the country does not only possess his remarkable qualities. He has gained wisdom over the course of time. His political moves based on the sentiments of the public are very democratic. It doesn’t matter how long it takes. For as long as it’s the right time. He announced that he knows his father’s plan for a progressive Philipines and it is bound to happen under his leadership.
Crucial to Go Back to Power
President Du30′ support, the wealth for humanity, and his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo are correlated with each other. These are all complimenting his return to power. When one is destined to lead, no one can block – even the Liberal Party. His alliance would back him up until the end. It is crucial that Ferdinand Marcos goes back to power for the Will and Testament’s manifestation.
Liberal Party solons and supporters are very disturbed after the President discloses that the late President Ferdinand Marcos’ trustee offers to help the economy. They allegedly plan to turn over some of the wealth including gold bars in their keepsake for the welfare of the people. Biased media again launches a propaganda reviving their ancient accusation that the Marcoses amassed the country’s funds. Regardless of the many court cases they survived, the LP continues to turn around a positive news to negative. They even link the World Bank wealth with Bongbong Marcos’ presidential bid in 2022.

In the recent interview with Erwin Tulfo, Marcos expresses confidence with the Supreme Court’s preparation for the upcoming recount. Almost everything is set including the venue for the manual recount. Once the PET orders the retrieval of the ballot boxes from the priority provinces named by Marcos, the process can start immediately. This is amidst the scandals currently happening.
From Bautista to Hidden Wealth
It was a big fuzz when the estranged wife of COMELEC Chair squeals regarding his alleged ill-gotten wealth. During Marcos’ inactivity, the announcement of the said hidden wealth disclosure by a Marcos spokesperson emerges through the speech of the President himself. These things just don’t happen accidentally. The Philippine leader is a strategic thinker. He is definitely preparing the Filipinos for a big change sooner rather than later as intended initially during the 2016 election.
One biased media wrote: Du3o attempts to justify one of the largest plunderings of state coffers in modern times. He claims that Marcos, who died in Honolulu in 1989 kept the wealth because he was protecting the economy. This reasoning is currently under attack by the yellow faction.
The President is known for his lawful actions despite his unpopular strategies to solve the country’s problems like the drug war. It is not a secret that he wants Marcos to succeed him as the President. However, there’s no shortcut for it. He has to prove in his electoral protest against VP Leni Robredo that he is indeed the legitimate Vice President. Once that is done, the original plan can take place – which is to turn over the presidency to Bongbong Marcos.
The most sought-after election lawyer of Bongbong Marcos, Atty. George Erwin Garcia, who originally points out the large estimate of 3.9 million undervotes has a valid point of making this a big deal from the start. It is not normal under election standard to have such large number of boycott voters. Even the 3.2 M latest count of undervotes is still very questionable.

Target of the Recount
Bongbong Marcos lists three pilot provinces for recount or revision that would allegedly show the merits of his election protest. He questions the victory of Vice President Leni Robredo during the election. The recount is about to begin but the Supreme Court has not ruled on the date yet. Marcos’ camp headed by Atty. Garcia targets on the authenticity of the undervotes when the ballot boxes are opened.
Atty. Victor Rodriguez, a spokesperson of Marcos, said that Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental are the pilot places for the recount. It is because they can show that the major discrepancies. This is the differences from the cast ballots and Vote Counting Machines transmissions. The tally can then be the basis of the Certificates of Canvass. These places had an enormous number of undervotes.
To this date, it is evident in the courses of actions of Marcos’ lawyers particularly Atty. Garcia and Atty. Rodriguez that their strategies are well-thought of. From the designation of 3 legal officers that could administer the electoral proceeding in a speedy manner to actual media announcements that are factual. These are in contrast with the actions displayed by the opposing camp.
These lawyers are just like Bongbong Marcos himself. They do not open their mouth just to have something to say about the opponent. This is why they go quiet when there’s no development from the Supreme Court yet. This means to say that it is not certain yet when the recount would start.
