Robredo slams Bongbong over election protest ‘propaganda’


Vice President Leni Robredo slammed former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos for his continued attempt to convince people that her election victory was fraudulent.

“Halos limang taon din na pinapaniwala nila. Sabi ko nga, kung mayroong utang si Mr. Marcos, utang niya ito doon sa mga taong pinapaniwala niya,” she said.

“Iyong kaniyang propaganda na siya ay dinaya, may mga taong napapaniwala niya. Kasalanan niya ito sa kanila,” she added.

The Supreme Court (SC), sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), dismissed Marcos' 2016 election protest against Robredo for lack of merit.

“Papaano iyong mga taong dahil sa fake news na pinapalabas nila, naniwala talaga. Kahit papaano, nakantiyawan iyong mga taong iyon, napahiya, kasalanan niya iyon. Kasalanan iyan ni Mr. Marcos,”Robredo said.

Despite the decision, Marcos’ camp said they want clarification on whether the SC dismissed his electoral protest or only a portion of it.

Marcos’ spokesperson Vic Rodriguez said they are waiting for the official copy of the decision even as the tribunal had already made a pronouncement that the ruling was unanimous in favor of junking the “entire electoral protest" for lack of merit.

“Instead na malugod na tanggapin, nag-a-attempt pa mag-fake news na pinapapaniwala pa iyong tao, na hindi na-dismiss with finality. Panlilinlang lang talaga,” Robredo said.

For the Vice-president, Marcos is already destroying the image of the institutions involved in the case supposedly for the sake of his ambition.

“Nakita natin kung papaano iyong ambisyon ng isang tao. Ambisyon noong isang politiko para lang makuha niya iyong kaniyang inaasam ay sisirain niya talaga iyong mga institusyon.

“Willing siyang sirain iyong mga institusyon, bahiran ng pagduda ang COMELEC, bahiran ng pagduda ang Supreme Court para lang makamtan niya iyong kaniyang kagustuhan na para bang, para sa akin, walang pakialam,” she added. — DVM, GMA News
