Isko Moreno Condemns Cheating In Elections survey

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – “How can we expect honest elections in 2022, when there is already cheating in the pre-elections survey?” This was the big question posed today by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

Moreno was reacting to an Octa Research elections survey that showed Presidential daughter Sara Duterte topping the polls for the people’s choice to succeed Rodrigo Duterte.

The same survey, as reported by The Manila Bulletin, also showed Bongbong Marcos coming in second, and Moreno, third.

But wait.

Marcos got 13 % in the poll and Moreno got 14%, so why is Marcos second and Moreno third?

Moreno condemned the cheating, calling it Leni math.

Rodrigo Duterte Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize!

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – For standing between two of the most powerful feuding nations of the world, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

The announcement came in Stockholm just hours after Duterte announced that he was withdrawing his earlier decision to end the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) with the United States in his country. The VFA allows American military forces to come and go and use Philippine facilities for bilateral training or military exercises.

Duterte has also maintained cordial relations with China, despite the ongoing territorial dispute over areas of the West Philippine Sea and his country’s victory in a United Nation’s arbitration court.

“By standing between the U.S. and China, Duterte has diffused the conflict between the two powerful countries and has practically averted the possibility of war,” a Nobel Prize statement said.. “We commend Duterte’s peace efforts which we hope will be recognized by the Nobel Peace Price committee,” it added.

RAISSA ROBLES DIDN’T GET IMMIGRATION MEMO

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raissa Robles said she didn’t get the memo from the Philippine Bureau of Immigration regarding entry protocols for travelers arriving in the country.

In a post on her social media account, Robles questioned why the courtesy call on President Rodrigo Duterte by Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz was done “virtually.”

Current travel policy in the country requires all incoming travelers to quarantine for 7 to 10 days, depending on vaccination status, as a precaution against the spread of Covid-19, especially the new, more transmissible Delta variant.

Netizens quickly criticized Robles for not doing her “investigation” before sending her post critical of Malacañang.
