MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In the interest of national unity and reconciliation, Bongbong Marcos and Leni Robredo have agreed on an out-of-court settlement of the former Senator’s electoral protest in connection with the 2016 Vice Presidential Elections.
Instead of pursuing the ballot recount, Marcos and Robredo have signed an agreement that they will equally share the six-year term of the position of Vice President.
According to the signed agreement, Robredo will serve three of the six-year term while Marcos will serve the remaining three.
So Robredo will be Vice President until June 30 of 2019 while Marcos will be VP from then until 2022.
The Presidential Electoral Tribunal, acting as the Supreme Court, has unanimously approved the agreeement.
All’s well that ends well.
