MANILA, 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!
