Robredo asks PET to junk Marcos poll protest

/ 04:47 AM November 25, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo has asked anew the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), to finally put to rest the poll protest of her defeated rival Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. for his continued failure to back his allegations of election fraud.

In a pleading filed on Monday, Robredo’s lawyers reiterated that Rule 65 of the PET warranted the junking of Marcos’ petition after the manual recount and revision of ballots in his chosen pilot provinces showed that he did not lose votes to Robredo as he had claimed.

They pointed out that Robredo even gained more than 15,000 additional votes after the ballot recount.
