VP Leni Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal cannot believe it when Bongbong Marcos said; “I don’t see any reason why I would change my mind. Why would I run for senator, I already won as vice president.” Marcos vows to “finish” his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo. Macalintal disputes this because according to him, nobody wins yet after a recount. They will just tally what the machines generate, he said. Perhaps, Marcos is dreaming, he added.

Marcos is certain that he would stand by his decision even if the President endorses him, or if he would be included in the slate of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban). That won’t stop him from pursuing the protest.” There seems to be some kind of understanding between Du30 and Marcos. It is remembered that President Du30 wants him to concentrate on his protest. The Filipino leader also told Marcos to trust him on this.
Election Protest Recount in February
The manual recounts are the actual counting of the ballots in comparison to the tallies from the server. This is contrary to Macalintal’s description that it is just a mere digital tabulation. Perhaps, he was caught by surprise when Marcos shows extreme confidence that he is the real winner of the VP race in 2016.
No for Senator 2019
To the dismay of the Robredo camp, Marcos does not follow the footsteps of his late running-mate, former Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, and Senator Loren Legarda. They both ran for their Senate seats, thus abandoning their respective electoral protests.
The Quest for the Real VP
Marcos, on the other hand, is more concerned about knowing the real results of the VP elections in 2016. He is also determined more than ever find out the real winner. He is not quitting and ready enough to pursue the case especially now that he has the support of most Filipinos – that is very obvious via the social media.
