10 May Marcos’ Camp Believes There’s a Cheating Involved in Robredo’s Vote Surges
On Tuesday, 3:20am, Liberal Party (LP) bet Leni Robredo took control on the top spot of the vice presidential race gaining 575 votes over Senator Ferdinand ‘Bong Bong’ Marcos’ 12,860,147 compared to her 12,860,722 votes.
Marcos’ camp immediately asked Commission on Elections (Comelec) to show a breakdown of the partial and unofficial transmitted election results. “We do not know where these votes are coming from,” Marcos’ campaign advisor Representative Jonathan Dela Cruz said.
“While the country is sleeping, we have seen a steep degree of his lead from one million to now trailing by 500 votes,” Dela Cruz added.
“The unofficial count may confuse the public because we have an official count,” Dela Cruz asked Comelec to stop the release of the unofficial count. They have also said that an investigation must be made if the unofficial tally of votes is the same from the official count.
Dela Cruz cannot identify what areas in the provinces the votes coming from. At one point, on 8:46 pm on Monday, Marcos’ lead almost reached 1 million! He got 10,324,427 compared to Robredo’s 9,397,005. But now as of 12:09 pm, May 10, Robredo is already ahead of Marcos by 185,412 votes.
We can remember in the days before the elections that Marcos has warned the voters to guard their votes and be vigilant to any anomalies that might occur.
He also pointed out ABS-CBN’s survey that conditioned the mind of the voters thinking otherwise from the legitimate survey, not from ABS-CBN. However, Robredo’s camp denied Marcos’ claims.
Robredo’s camp said, “Let’s all be reminded that it is not impossible that the majority of our people don’t want an unrepentant Marcos back.”
