BREAKING: Bongbong Marcos Files Last-Minute Protest In The VP Election Recount

A8AEF626-AB67-4597-A38C-94A85CAB1377.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The much-awaited and delayed manual recount of votes from contested precints in the 2016 Philippine Vice Presidential elections could face yet another delay.

Today, defeated VP candidate Bongbong Marcos filed a protest with the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) asking that the recount scheduled for today be stopped.

The basis of Marcos’ protest was an announcement by the Supreme Court, acting as the PET, that the recount committees will be using the Comelec’s PCOS machines in the manual recount — the same questionable equipment that were suspected of tampering with the electoral count in 2016.

The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo was eerily silent on Marcos’ latest protest.
