Robredo hopeful for "favorable decision" in BongBong Marcos electoral protest




The deliberations of the Supreme Court(SC) sitting as a Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) is nearing its completion and the Vice President Maria Leonor “leni” Robredo is hoping the High Court will decide in her favor to end the issue who really won the Vice Presidential race between her former Senator BongBong Marcos Jr.
The SC has not given judgment on the protest of Marcos, who sought a recount in three pilot provinces — Camarines, Negros Oriental and Iloilo. The SC has deferred voting on the ruling on the protest to October 8.

"We are hoping for the best," Robredo said, adding that she is looking forward to a speedy resolution of the case.

The Vice president wants the issue be threshed out as early as possible so that it can no longer be used as propaganda or source of “fake news.”
She also likens the electoral protest as a “test of electoral process” and justice system.
"Ang pinaka-issue dito is bigger than both of us, so ganoon siya kahalaga (The main issue here is bigger than both of us, so it is very important)," the Vice President said.

Robredo emphasized that the Supreme Court's decision will definitely have an impact on the credibility of the 2016 national elections.
"Ito iyong electoral process na nagpanalo sa mga nakaupo na mga officials ngayon.
So kapag hindi natin tiniwalaan iyong electoral process, parang sinasabi natin na iyong lahat na nakaupo ngayon, huwad," she said.
(This is the electoral process that brought over sitting officials today. So if we don't believe in the electoral process, it's like saying that those who are sitting now are frauds.)
