Marcos camp to contest Robredo ‘win’

25

The camp of Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Friday said they will continue to fight and file within 15 days a protest before the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) to contest the official outcome of the canvassing of votes showing Rep. Leni Robredo as winner of the vice presidential race.

The PET has jurisdiction over disputes involving the presidential and vice presidential election results.

The National Board of Canvassers late on Friday released the official results of the vote counts for President and Vice President, giving Robredo an edge of 263,473 votes over her closest rival, Marcos.

Marcos’ political adviser Jonathan dela Cruz said among their demands is an audit of the Smartmatic system, a request that had been denied by the Commission on Elections.

Marcos’ camp will also pinpoint areas where massive cheating was committed, he added.
A third complaint will present witnesses, including defeated Liberal Party candidates, who the group claims, are also victims of similar fraud.

Meanwhile, political analyst and professor Antonio Contreras from the De la Salle University, said in a Facebook post : “There is no glory in winning a highly questionable election. The ghosts of fraud will haunt you. And you will go down the annals of history as a product of that fraud. And worse is when you eventually lose in a protest. You will end up as a blighted footnote.”

Using as basis the statistical graph on the margin of votes between Marcos and Robredo formulated by a statistics expert from Ateneo de Manila earlier this month, Contreras noted that the movement of the votes on the graph appeared to have been manipulated.

“I will continue to support the process of exorcising the electoral process of the fraud that I, together with millions of Filipinos, believe happened,” he added.

    Macoy can contest the past election as long as he wants, since he has deep pockets and can afford to hire hundreds of pro-Marcos lawyers!! But, the election results is not going to change!!! Marcos you lost the election!!!! Robredo wins the Vice Presidency!!!
    Macoy, why don’t you just go back to Ilocos Norte and go to your mommy Imeldific. You can cry over Mommy Imeldita!! She will make you feel good! She can devise an evil plan to hire some hit men, goons, to assassinate Vice President elect Leni Robredo and you become the next Vice President, just like what your parents did. They hired a hit-man, Ronaldo Galman to shoot Senator Benigno Aquino!!

    ang nakakakaba ay, bakit nangyari yung kinalikot ang computer nang walang permission kunu ng Comelec? at isang foreigner pa ang gumawa. nang mabuking, :cosmetic lang” daw. matatanggap ba nating mga pilipino yon? ako hinde. walang personalan. kahit ipagpalagay na nating ang involved ay si chiz at si robredo. kung nagli-lead constantly si robredo ng 1 million tapos ay biglang mauunahan ni chiz, dahil sa isang patagong pinindot na computer, habang natutulog sa pansitan si Comelec, matatanggap mo ba? dapat magpaliwanag ang Comelec sa nangyaring iyon. hindi dapat i-news blackout iyon. sino yung foreignor na iyon? ano ang kanyang background? papaano siya napasama sa operations dito? sino’ng nag-nominate? sino nag-approve? bakit ganoong kalakas ang loob niyang makialam sa politika sa pilipinas? bakit patago ang kilos niya? hwag tayong mag-away-away na magkakababayan. maging matalino tayo at masusi nating siyasatin ang pakikialam ng banyaga sa bayan natin.

  3. Eto na lang pag isipan nyong mabuti eh, majority ng mga Pilipino ayaw na sa mga aquino. Hindi naman siguro tanga at bobotante ang karamihan dahil alam nilang manok ng aquino si leni. Kaya nga natalo si mar dahil maraming ayaw na sa mga dilaw. So bakit mo iboboto si leni kung alam mong manok ito ni aquino na kinasusuklaman na ng karamihan? Tandaan po natin na kahit pa lumipas ang maraming taon at maging matalino ang mga Pilipino sa kanilang pag boto kung ang magdidikta lamang ng mga uupong presidente at bise ay ang mga buwayang nakaupo sa gobyerno at ang kanilang magic gamit ang makinang naka program na kung sino ang mananalo, wala pong mangyayari sa ating mga Pilipino at sa ating bansa. Magiging kawawa po ang karamihan at hinding hindi na natin mararanasan ang buhay na masagana.

    • Madali lang ito let’s do the math okay? Pres at VP counting simple math by approximate counting lang po close to what the polls flashed in the tv and close to what I recall, heto ganito ang daya. Kunin ang calculator o di kaya naman abacus para ikaw ay maliwanagan na.
      For President
      Duterte 16M
      Roxas 9M
      Poe 8M
      Binay 5M
      Santiago 1M
      Seneres less than million (di natin isasali ito)
      Sum=39M
      For Vice president
      Marcos 14M
      Leni 14M
      Cayetano 5M
      Escudero 3M (sabihin na nating ganyan)
      Honasan less than a million (mga litong bumoto)
      Trillanes less than a million (pampagulo)
      SUM=36M
      Example
      Ratio 39:36 may 3M na kulang di ba kung ganyan ang datos. May undervoting ba talaga? If yes, nasaan yan? Lohika: pwedeng may undervoting na nangyari. Alangan naman na ang taumbayan leave it blank ang VP post? Impossible ang 3M na pilipino ay naging tanga noong May 9 na leave it blank ang VP post..Kaya obvious na obvious ang pandaraya di ba?
      Maraming posibleng nangyari gaya ng pwede rin bang ang ibang VP votes nilipat kay Leni? Pwede! Kaya lomobo ng 14M. Pano kasi talunan na sila kaya maaring binigay na kapalit ng 500 peso bills, sympre malaki din gastos ng bawat vp candidate eh kaysa wala kang napala sa talo pwede rin ibenta na lang. Nakakatawang nakakainis pero alam naman nating lahat na ang halalang ito ang pinaka may malalang dayaan sa buong mundo!
      PAALALA: Kayo na po ang humusga ang opinyon ko ay bagay lamang sa mga nakakaintindi ng simpleng math ng pandaraya. Mahirap pong intindihin yan sa mga sumusunod lang sa daang mandaraya.. Salamat sa pang unawa at unawain po na ang nangyari ay di kailanman matatanggap ng karamihan dahil naniniwala akong ang karamihan ay bumoto ng tama kay VP BBM.

  4. The COMELEC must allow the investigation to rule out any doubts of manipulation of data. The nation has the right to know the truth, this is more for the camp of Mrs. Robredo, so that in the history, she will be remembered not as a vice president whose win was manipulated because the COMELEC DID NOT ALLOW THE INVESTIGATION.
    Please let you do this, if you have NOTHING TO HIDE, THEN ALLOW THIS AUDIT.
    A.ND THE WHOLE NATION WILL HAVE PEACE.

    It’s very obvious that there was a massive cheating in this election 2016, which was even covered up by COMELEC just to ensure that yellow cult would still hold on to the power and displace the Marcoses. Only stupids would believe that the manipulation of the hash codes was only meant for cosmetic patch-up, which was even secretly done during the transmission of election returns. Anyway, watch out for the whistle blowers coming from the COMELEC and Smartmatic ITs. What a shame!!!

  6. Harold Palejo on

    namnamin mo ang every second ng iniisip mong tagumpay mo leni robredo! hanggang sa mapatunayan ni bongbong marcos sa PET na fraud ka! palagi mong binabanggit ang katotohanan and everything that related to it pero nabulag ka ng ambisyon mo at pagkamanhid mo.. what a shame! until the PET will start and confirms BongBong as a true victor in the VP race… Enjoy ka muna!

  7. The Lady Magdalene of the Philippine Politics – Leni Robredo

    Onorabol Leni Robredo will hound in history as a “Political Prostitute.” This is so
    because she allowed herself to be used to service a particular political interest not for the Filipino People but for the Aquino Family whose political colour is yellow. The pain that she herself help to inflict to the Filipino People will go down in history as THE MOST TRAGIC and TREACHEROUS ACT AGAINST THE FILIPINO CONSTITUENTS WHO VOTED SENATOR BONGBONG MARCOS. The RIGGING OF THE 2016 ELECTION that benefits Robredo to grab the vice presidency thru the
    conspiracy between COMELEC and Smartmatic officials engineered by the outgoing
    commander in chief of the Philippines from the REAL WINNER Senator Ferdinand
    “Bongbong” R. Marcos WILL BE REMEMBERED IN HISTORY AS THE ELECTIONS REAL CHEATERS REVEALED because Senator Bongbong Marcos with the help of the surprise heroes of the 2016 Election with the support of the Netizens will exhaust all legal and moral means to BRING THE CULPRITS TO JUSTICE. Miracles happens at a time we don’t expect to come not during the time that the Filipino sleep when Marlon Garcia sent the command to shave Marcos votes to favor Robredo.

    God help for those who seek the truth

    Go go go Sir BBM I will support whatever means…God bless Philippines…

  9. P Makabayan on

    Ituloy mo ang laban! Hindi lang ito para sa iyo, kundi para sa buong Filipino na ginigisa sa sariling mantika. Pagkatapos kaming pagbayarin sa billiones na makina na yan, gagamitin para dayain kami? Ipaakulong ang lahat ng nagsabwatan diya, kasama ang PPCRV kung mapatunayang accessory sila to the crime.

  10. Andy Bautista shall be charge with obstruction of justice for not allowing to conduct on Audit of the system. He is hiding something that’s why he is not allowing to conduct for audit system. He is the cousin of ABNOY he must be punish both of this are hiding something that’s why they are reluctance to allow the request of BBM to conduct audit system. Papayagan ba natin babuyin naman ang ating karapatan, mistula tayong niyuyurakan ang taong ito. Dapat magising tayo at gawin natin ang nararapat para makulong ang mga ito na umurak sa ating karaparatan. Ang kapal nitong mga taong nakakatulog sa mga kawalanghiyang pinagagawa nila. Gising mga kabayan kumilos tayo para sa ating bayan masyado tayong niyurakan ang ating karapatan kaya dapat kumilos na tayo.

  11. Maribel A. Calanda on

    Yes, BBM should file a protest so that he will be forever loved by his supporters. Kahit sabihin pa na aabutin ng syam syam yan bago mapatunayan, at least he is principled enough not to succumb to a cheat or party of cheats. Do not concede BBM! File a protest. Your supporters will contribute for your protest fee.

    good, fight till the end to ferret the truth what ever the out come will be, the important is the truth to come out

    • Don’t ask anymore coz if about Marcos,even how many evidence already there infront of peoples eyes they only believe what they want,even until now they are enjoying all the achievements of his father still they are saying he never contributed anything in his country..so use your six senses they don’t lie to you & you will know the truth & it’s up to you if u believe…

  13. Bonifacio Bangayan Claudio on

    The Yellows will be sitting on the PET as judges, right? If so, to whom will the protesters turn to except to the MASSES?! It is only when the masses “manifest & speak” that grievances will be heard & given due process… Hope to God all will be well…

    • Harold Palejo on

      I think po, half of the Supreme Court justices, including the Chief Justice which of of Yellow appointee will seat as judges in the PET.. so? sadly Yes… baka 50-50 pa rin dun.

  14. When will the Marcoses ever learn rhar they are politically dead when it comes to national election? Our country does not need another Marcos dictator.

    • If i were you i’d rather look at the figures & the incidents appeared in the election,before confidently saying that.if he got only 1million vote or 7million(let’s make it more generous) ok you can say that,but more than 200+k difference & with lot of incidents happened at smartmatic etc etc?that difference is nothing,it only shows how people love them..

  15. I agree. Its a yellow conspiracy.Can we bear a shade of yellow again in the presence of puppet Robredo? Do a system audit to expose their wrongdoings. Smartmatic must be banned in all future elections and avoid their possible interference again in the referendum for the federalism plan of president Duterte

    Aw, shut up! Sore loser!
