Bongbong Marcos Asks Election Tribunal to Expedite Poll Protest
« on: January 28, 2017, 11:13:45 AM »

Pressing on his quest for truth, the camp of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr. today asked the Supreme Court, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), to expedite his election protest by setting his case for preliminary conference.

“Today, former Senator Bongbong Marcos presses on in his quest for truth with the filing of this motion to set the case for preliminary conference,” lawyer Victor Rodriguez, spokesman of Marcos said in an interview shortly after the filing at the PET.

In a 4-page Ex-Parte Motion filed by lawyer George Erwin Garcia, Marcos said it is about time the PET issues the notice for preliminary conference since the last pleading joining the issues in his case had been filed and served as early as 9 September 2016.

Under Rule 29 of the 2010 Rules of the PET, the preliminary conference should have been set after the filing of the last pleading.

“Protestant (Marcos) ……respectfully moves to set the above-entitled case for preliminary conference pursuant to (2010 PET Rules), considering that the last pleading joining the issues in this election protest case had been filed and served as early as 9 September 2016,” the pleading stated.

He explained that the setting of the preliminary conference is important because it will set in motion the issues to be resolved, the list of witnesses and the evidence to be presented as well as the schedule of hearings and the revision of the ballots, in his protest.

“This is important because the preliminary conference will set into motion Sen. Marcos' election protest so it can finally move forward," he pointed out.

Rodriguez noted that Marcos’ motion is without prejudice to the resolution of the Tribunal on the resolution on the two incidents still to be resolved by the court.

He stated that there remain two major pending motions that require resolution by the PET. He said these are the Motion to Strike Out the Answer of former Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo for being filed out of time which was filed on 9 September 2016 and Marcos’ Manifestation with Motion to Admit Attached Verification filed on 20 September 2016.

“There remain two pending incidents which we are likewise awaiting resolution but more than these motions, we want the case to finally move forward so we can finally present our evidence of massive election fraud in the vice presidential race in the last elections,” Rodriguez said.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
