Robredo camp to ‘nervous’ supporters: Fraud claims just accusations
The camp of Liberal Party candidate Camarines Sur Rep. Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo parried doubts of her supporters who are nervous about the final result of the vice presidential race, saying the electoral fraud allegations will remain speculations from the team of her closest rival Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
Robredo’s spokesperson Georgina Hernandez on Friday asked the supporters to trust election experts, including the foreign observers who concluded that no cheating happened in the May 9 national elections.

“May duda o wala, hindi magbabago ‘yung numero sa eleksyon. Sana lahat tayo maniwala at magtiwala sa democratic exercise na pinagdadaanan ng bansa ngayon,” Hernandez said.
(Whether there are doubts or none, the numbers in the elections won’t change. May we all believe and trust in the democratic exercise the country is undergoing.)
Robredo continues to lead the race with 225,266 votes ahead of Marcos.
Hernandez also reiterated what Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon said that change in the hash codes did not affect the result of the unofficial vote count provided real-time by the poll body and Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV).
“Kahit may ganitong pagbabago, mismong si Commissioner Guanzon na ang nagsabi na hindi maapektuhan ‘yung resulta ng boto,” she said.
(Although there were changes, Commissioner Guanzon said that the result of the unofficial vote count won’t be affected.)
She said Robredo’s team will keep on explaining to the people that the issues on the transparency servers will not have an effect on the final result. RAM
