‘TAPUSIN NA’ | Robredo camp: Vote immediately on poll protest to stop cheating claims
October 9, 2019 , 12:46 PM

OCTOBER 9, 2019 – Further delays in the ruling on the electoral protest filed by former senator Bongbong Marcos against Vice President Leni Robredo will only allow cheating allegations to prosper, her lawyer said on Wednesday

In an interview with Radyo Singko’s Early All Ready, Atty. Bernadette Sardillo reiterated their call to end the three-year long dispute on the 2016 election results after the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), deferred for the second time voting on the poll protest.

 

 

“Ilang beses na po naming hinihingi sa PET na tapusin na ‘yung kaso… kasi habang tumatagal ang kaso, nabibigyan ng pagkakataon po ang ibang tao na hindi sang-ayon sa kanya na tinatawag siyang mandaraya,” Sardillo said.

The legal counsel also questioned why it is taking time for the magistrates to issue an immediate decision on the poll protest filed by Marcos on June 29, 2016.

Voting was rescheduled on October 15, a month after Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa submitted a report on the ballot recount covering three pilot provinces where the alleged fraud was massive on September 9.

“Hindi po natin maintindihan kung bakit natatagalan ‘yung pagresolba nila sa naging resulta sa bilangan sa tatlong probinsya na pinili ni Ginoong Marcos na base po sa records ni VP Robredo ay panalo po kami sa bilangan,” Sardillo said.

Iloilo, Negros Oriental, and Camarines Sur identified as pilot provinces for the ballot recount were known bailiwicks of Robredo.

“Nakakadagdag sa pag-aalala namin dahil marami ngang balita ang lumalabas kung ano ang magiging resulta ng botohan ng PET at ang nakakalungkot po roon lahat ng balitang lumalabas ay hindi pabor para kay VP Robredo ang nagiging resulta,” Sardillo said.

Initial reports said the PET will vote 8-6 in favor of Marcos and proceed with the ballot recount of 22 provinces and five key cities.

Retiring Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin and Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio are deemed to go seperate ways in rejecting or affirming Rule 65 of the PET, which states that the recount in other areas will only continue if the massive cheating is proven in the three pilot provinces.

“Kami po, nagtitiwala kami na susundin nila ang rules,” Sardillo said.

Marcos’ camp also urged the tribunal to immediately resolve the case due to the changing composition of the magistrates.

“Ang problema lang kapag magpapalit, panibagong pag-aaral na naman iyon ng mga bagong-appointed sapagkat hindi naman nila pamilyar doon sa kaso and the applicable… so mag-aaral muli,” Marcos spokesman Atty. Vic Rodriguez said in a separate interview.
