Robredo Petitions Supreme Court For Partial Credit of 25% Shaded Ballots

DA627C7D-6744-4C77-8A91-DCD5B0495D16.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) –  In a desperate effort to regain lost votes as a result of the ongoing recount of the 2016 Vice Presidential Elections, Leni Robredo has petitioned the Supreme Court, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), for partial credit of 25% shaded ballots.

Earlier, PET denied Robredo’s petition to consider partly-shaded votes, including those that are shaded just 25%, as votes in her favor.

In a new petition filed before PET, Robredo asked for a compromise: that ballots cast for her that were shaded just 25% be credited as a 1/4 vote (0.25).

”The number would still be significant,” Robredo spokesperson Georgina Hernandez told The Adobo Chornicles. “It means that 4 ballots that were each shaded just 25% would equal to one full vote for the Vice President.”

The math may be correct, but the logic is, well, illogical!
