Guard your votes, Marcos warns


AS the elections draw nearer, Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. called on his supporters to guard their votes, warning that his opponents are hatching all types of tricks to manipulate the result of the May 9 polls.

The Ilocano lawmaker issued the warning on Monday after his camp received more than a dozen reports of irregularities during the conduct of the overseas absentee voting.

“We have 12 to 15 cases from Dubai to Japan and to California where our supporters voted for me and yet the voters’ receipts did not show my name,” he told reporters in a chance interview at Great Eastern Hotel Manila in Quezon City where local politicians gathered to express their support to him.

Marcos said the overseas voting discrepancies were reported to the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

“So far, we were told that the complaining voter will be allowed to vote again, invalidating the questionable vote,” the senator added.

Marcos said he anticipates more attempts to cheat him that is why he has tapped lawyers to guard his votes.

“Our legal team is on top of the preparations in making sure all our votes are counted and guarded. We also have our volunteers who will help us on the ground to closely monitor the elections on Monday,” he added.

“We are now focusing on guarding our votes. Of course, we are still campaigning but we are intent on making sure that all our votes are counted,” the senator said.

The local officials present on Monday were Councilors Bong Suntay (Fourth District), Jun Ferrer (First District) and Tates Gana, common-law wife of Mayor Herbert Bautista, who is running for councilor of the Fifth District.

Meanwhile, Marcos said that he topped the mock elections among members of El Shaddai.
“I don’t have the details yet but I was told that I emerged on top of the consultation. I am thankful to the El Shaddai members for their trust and confidence,” he added.

At the start of Saturday’s prayer rally, members of the religious group were told to fill out a piece of paper and indicate their preferred politicians for national seats from President to senators.

Marcos also won the support of a big labor group, Lakas Manggagawa Labor Center, led by Terry Tuazon.

“From Cory Aquino to the present President, we only had frustrations. We believe in the platform of government of Bongbong which is geared toward granting more benefits to ordinary workers,” Tuazon said.

Cory is Corazon Aquino, late former president of the Philippines and mother of President Benigno Aquino 3rd.
