No cheating occurred in 2016 elections, Macalintal maintains

/ 04:01 PM November 29, 2017


Election law expert Atty. Romulo Macalintal, counsel for Vice President Leni Robredo, maintained that the Vice President won over former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos fair and square.

“Walang pandaraya nakita na ginawa ng makina [Smartmatic] since 2010,” Macalintal said on Tuesday at Kapihan sa Manila Bay.

[There was no evidence of cheating from the machine since 2010.]


Macalintal insisted that despite of the request of Marcos’ camp to do a recount for Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental, the results would be the same.

“Kahit bilangin mo pa ang mga balotang ‘yan, the same results would be generated sapagkat ‘yan ang nangyare,” he said.

[Even if you do a ballot recount, the same results would be generated because that’s what happened]

Marcos accused Robredo of cheating after winning the vice presidential seat with a gap of more than 200,000 votes. /je
