Former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. announced on Tuesday that he had signed a joint manifestation to withdraw all motions filed with the Supreme Court (SC), sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), to finally pave the way for a ballot recount.

“I’ve done everything possible to speed up this election protest,” Marcos said in a statement. “At this point, the only thing left is for Mrs. Robredo to sign the document. We are waiting.”

Marcos issued the announcement after lawyer Romulo Macalintal, counsel of Vice President Leni Robredo, declared that their camp had accepted Marcos’s challenge for them to sign a joint manifestation withdrawing all motions with regard to Marcos’s electoral protest.


The Robredo camp issued an advisory on the same day announcing that they would wait for Marcos on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at the Shakey’s Pizza on Roxas Boulevard in Malate, Manila.
