MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The electoral protest filed by Bongbong Marcos against Leni Robredo in connection with the 2016 Vice Presidential elections has remained in limbo for several years now.
Today, the Supreme Court of the Philippines, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) has finally declared Robredo the whiner in the contest.
Despite the matter considered sub judice, where parties in a case pending in court are prohibited from publicly discussing related issues, the Robredo camp has been vocal in criticizing Marcos for his persistent attempts to assert his legal rights.
As a matter of fact, the Robredo camp just this week called Marcos a “spoiled brat” for once again pushing a Supreme Court (SC) justice to inhibit from the electoral protest he filed against Robredo.
In an en banc resolution, the PET admonished Robredo to stop whining and let the case proceed accordingly.
