Vice President Leni Robredo showed gratitude to her supporters who held a prayer vigil on streets on Tuesday regarding Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s electoral protest.
Marcos filed his complaint in 2016, after he lost in the vice-presidential poll against Robredo.
Robredo’s supporters gathered on Padre Faura Street in front of the Supreme Court and in several places around the country to exclaim their concerns about Marcos’ complaint.
Despite that, the VP reminded her supporters to remain faithful and that truth always prevails.
Robredo posted a video message on her personal Facebook account to remind her defenders to continue fighting for the truth.
“Thank you very much. We will continue fighting. As I have been saying from the start: In the end, it’s always the right and truth that come out the victor.”
PET’s decision on Marcos’ poll protest
The Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) on Tuesday said the Supreme Court has not yet taken any action and does not yet have the decision on the said case.
“The said case remains pending and is still being deliberated by the members of the tribunal,” the court’s Public Information Office chief Brian Keith Hosaka confirmed.
PET moved the deliberation this coming October 15.
Marcos lost in the 2016 vice-presidential elections by around 280,000 votes against Robredo. Although, he believes a “massive cheating” happened.
He asked to recount the votes from the three provinces he picked: Iloilo, Negros Oriental, and Camarines Sur.
Robredo, who left for Australia on Tuesday night, also mentioned on Facebook that she was updated with what’s happening in the Philippines.
“Since this morning, I have been checking Facebook. What you are posting, I can see it on Instagram. I saw on Twitter how many went to the Supreme Court office to show your support.”
“My utmost gratitude goes to you,” she added.
