MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just hours after the Philippines’ Commission Elections (Comelec) announced it was ready to publicly release the transmission log in the 2022 Presidential elections, defeated candidate Atty. Leni Robredo asked the poll body to desist from doing so.
The Comelec was responding to requests for the release of the transmission log in connection with 20 Million votes that came in after the polls closed on May 9, 2022.
Bongbong Marcos defeated Robredo in a landslide vote.
Asked by The Adobo Chronicles, Robredo said that her own lawyers and computer experts had already said they did not find any incidence of election cheating.
“Besides the release of the transmission log could only prove that I lost the election by an overwhelming vote of the Filipino people. That would be adding insult to injury,” she said.
The former VP added that she would prefer a cloud of doubt to hover over the election results so that she could at least hold on to her dignity as a candidate.
