Mga mandaraya! Marcos camp on COMELEC granting 25% shading: We are not at all surprised

Atty. Vic Rodriguez, Spokesperson of the former Senator Bongbong Marcos, said in a statement that their camp is not at all surprised with the Commission on Election's (COMELEC) stand on the 25% shading released recently.

According to the disappointed lawyer, "The conspiracy is so clear and the co-conspirator is not expected to admit it".

He stated that the very purpose of putting in question how the COMELEC comitted fraud during the national elections.

"The purpose of the election protest is primarily to question how the COMELEC, then under the tutelage of the disgraced and impeached Andres Bautista, have misconducted the election, undertaken a false canvassing and manipulated the transmission of results in favor of Mrs. Robredo", he said

Thus, the Marcos lawyer said, COMELEC admitting that it is the 'only' Supreme Court sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), of which has the has sole and exclusive jurisdiction to try and decide cases involving the qualification, election and returns for the position of Vice President, the powerful commission had "effectively divested itself of any legal standing to rule on any matter pending before the PET".

Later, Atty. Rodriguez called the electoral commission's position on the threshold percentage "not only illegal", but also, "meant to justify the cheating done to favor Mrs. Robredo and sway the public opinion to generate support on her continuing attempt to cheat even more", he said.

Initially, it was only the 50% shading that should be allowed causing the Robredo camp have a hard time fighting for the 25% shading. Many call it unlawful as it seem suspicious.

Marcos's fight for justice with the vice presidency has been going on for a long time already. There were rumors that Robredo camp is doing everything they could to win.

Months ago, news surfaced that some of the ballot boxes got wet, making it impossible to be read.

Full statement of the Bongbong Marcos's spokesperson is below:

We are not at all surprised with the COMELEC position. The conspiracy is so clear and the co-conspirator is not expected to admit it.

The purpose of the election protest is primarily to question how the COMELEC, then under the tutelage of the disgraced and impeached Andres Bautista, have misconducted the election, undertaken a false canvassing and manipulated the transmission of results in favor of Mrs. Robredo.

By COMELEC's own admission that it is only the Supreme Court, sitting as the Electoral Tribunal, that has sole and exclusive jurisdiction to try and decide cases involving the qualification, election and returns for the position of Vice President, it had effectively divested itself of any legal standing to rule on any matter pending before the PET.

As it was made suspiciously four months after the May 2016 elections and as an after thought in support of Robredo's belated assertions, COMELEC's position on the threshold percentage is not only patently illegal but at best meant to justify the cheating done to favor Mrs. Robredo and sway the public opinion to generate support on her continuing attempt to cheat even more.
