Marcos camp belies Robredo’s ‘victory’ claim
The camp of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Thursday belied the claim of Vice President Leni Robredo that her lead against the ertswhile lawmaker even widened during the revision and recount of votes.
In a statement, Marcos counsel Vic Rodriguez disclosed that Robredo’s claim was just a self-serving statement aimed at deceiving the people.
“There are no official findings yet by the PET (Presidential Electoral Tribunal) as to the figures recovered by either party. What they have at the moment are all self-serving assumptions meant to mislead the Filipino people who have long been waiting for the result of the election protest filed by Sen. Bongbong Marcos the early resolution of which Mrs. Robredo have time and again suppressed by her delaying tactics.”
“What she should answer squarely now are the findings made by the Commission on Audit (COA) making her accountable for public funds used on her Angat Buhay program which were found to have poor planning and are lacking in documents,” Rodriguez said.
