The loyalists of Bongbong Marcos ask Vice President Leni Robredo’s supporters why they can’t simply follow the procedures on how to shade the egg-like circle in the ballots during the 2016 election. It is very strange that only her alleged voters are affected by the 50% ruling of the Supreme Court. The arguments go around social media as Marcos mesmerizes on his NASA experience. His dream to be an astronaut remains as this happens.
Why Only Robredo’s Supporters?
Supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo submit to the Supreme Court on a petition with 10,000 signatures in support of her plea to lower the threshold percentage in the manual recount of votes in the poll protest case lodged by former Senator Bongbong Marcos. The ruling is effective to both camps. However, it is only her supporters who seem to be guilty of the under shading. What is common to them? Marcos loyalists asked.
Election Recount Petition
The current threshold is at 50 percent. Robredo urges the high court that sits as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), to lower this to 25 percent. She argues that the current threshold “disenfranchises” voters.
The signatories to the letter-appeal are from Robredo’s home province of Camarines Sur. They reiterate her position that the 25 percent shading threshold was used by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) in the May 9, 2016, synchronized local and national elections. However, it’s the Supreme Court that has the power to decide for the final ruling.
Out of this World
One does not have to be an astronaut to figure out that Robredo’s plea is out of this world. She is simply guilty of election fraud. Worse, this is through digital means. That is why most of her votes are only up to 25%. The marking can never be as solid as the official pentel pen used during the election.
