Robredo camp hits Bongbong Marcos: 'Minsan, dapat sinusunog ang epal'

Who really won as Vice President?

Sitting Vice President Leni Robredo insisted that she is the duly elected and proclaimed the winner of the 2016 elections for the second-highest leader of the country, contrary to the claims of former Senator Bongbong Marcos.

“Tapos na ‘yung eleksyon, pinroclaim tayo ng Kongreso… Nagkaroon ng recount, panalo ulit tayo. 
Ilang panalo pa ang kailangan para maniwala siya na hindi siya nanalo?” Robredo said.

Meanwhile, on a Twitter post, Robredo’s spokesman Barry Gutierrez also commented: “Paminsan-minsan, dapat sinusunog ang umeepal.”

The Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) in the ongoing electoral protest had deferred the ruling on Marcos' electoral protest against Robredo.

Reportedly, both parties were asked to comment on the issues surrounding the protest before it.

In an article by Philstar, Brian Keith Hosaka, Supreme Court spokesperson, said "the Tribunal has decided to release to the parties the report on the revision and appreciation of ballots in the three pilot provinces, and for them to comment thereon."

Robredo earlier welcomed the declaration of PET that it will release to both camps the report on the recount on the three pilot provinces.

Though she felt relieved that the tribunal will make the documents public, she was also frustrated because it means the case is not over yet.

"We stand by our position that there is no other acceptable decision but to dismiss the protest in accordance with Rule 65 of the PET in accordance with the results of the recount," Robredo said.
