MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Supreme Court (SC), sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), was supposed to rule on whether to continue with the recount of contested (2016 Vice Presidential election) ballots in Mindanao. Instead, PET announced that Leni Robredo will remain the Philippines fake VP.
The justices on Tuesday directed the release of the report on the recount of contested ballots from Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental, Marcos’ chosen pilot provinces, to Marcos and Robredo, said SC spokesman Brian Hosaka.
The PET also required the parties to comment on the report and to submit their memoranda on the “various issues relating to the jurisdiction and other matters relating to the third cause of action” within 20 days from receipt of notice.
In effect, the high court paved the way for Robredo to hold on to the position fake VP as claimed by Marcos’ supporters.
This also means that Robredo can continue to “wait for something to happen to the President,’ which she says is her only role as VP.
