Nilaglag daw ang Comelec! Robredo: Calida is Marcos apologist
Vice President Leni Robredo said it was unsurprising Solicitor General Jose Calida backed former senator Bongbong Marcos’ position regarding the 50% shading threshold in connection to the Ilocos Norte politiko’s electoral protest against her.
Robredo said Calida is a Marcos apologist and supporter.
“Ako, alam nating lahat – alam ko, alam ninyo – na si Calida ay ‘di lang Marcos apologist, pero number one na Marcos supporter,” she said.
But Robredo said Calida should have set aside his personal preferences and continued to represent the Commission on Elections.
“Pero sa akin, ‘yung papel niya sa PET case ay ‘di naman bilang party; ‘yung papel ng kanyang opisina ay bilang abogado ng Comelec. At dahil hindi naman hinihingi ang kanyang personal na pakiramdam tungkol sa bagay na ‘yan, sana nire-represent niya ‘yung interes ng kanyang kliyente, na ‘yun ‘yong Comelec,” she explained.
