Leni deplores Marcos camp’s penchant for lies, disinformation
Vice President Leni Robredo on Sunday deplored the camp of former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s penchant to spread lies and disinformation concerning the electoral protest before the Presidential Electoral Tribunal.
“Iyong bago na naman na kasinungalingan na sinasabi, parang sinasabi niya pa na may daya pa iyong recount,” Robredo said.
“So ang nakakalungkot lang, kasi tapos na iyong prosesong hiningi niya, pinagbigyan siya, pero ayaw niya pa din tanggapin,” she added.
The opposition leader pointed out that the additional votes she received from the recount were those not counted by the vote counting machines.
“Paminsan kasi iyong machine, may kaunti lang na mark iyong balota, na-i-spoil na iyong ballot. So noong minanual siya, nakikita mo iyong buong balota, at nakikita mo talaga kung hindi naman spoiled iyong ballot, may na-mark lang, so kino-consider siya,” she said.
Earlier, the camp of Marcos expressed deep concern that a “highly placed” official in PET has been favoring Robredo ever since the protest was filed.
Lawyer Vic Rodriguez pointed this out considering that Robredo has been celebrating even before the PET released the results of the recount of ballots in the pilot provinces of Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental.
“It only confirmed our suspicion that Mrs. Robredo’s premature celebration and claim of another fake victory in the Tribunal was a product of advance information she’s been receiving all along through a highly placed deep throat,” he said. #
