Bongbong Marcos joins supporters in prayer vigil-turned-protest against ballot recount delay


Former senator Bongbong Marcos on February 8 questioned the need for a psychological test for revisors in connection to his electoral protest againt Vice President Leni Robredo.

The Ilocos Norte politiko joined his supporters at the Supreme Court (SC) for a supposed prayer vigil for the beginning of the ballot recount.

“Bigla nagkaroon ng psychological test para sa revisor. Wala naman yan sa batas. Noong 2016 pwede ng gawin yon,” Marcos said.

Marcos lamented that the ballot recount was delayed for about a month.

The SC, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), set the start of the ballot recount on March 19.

“Kaya sila andito to hold a vigil but the recount was moved to next month again. This prayer vigil turned into a protest to show displeasure,” Marcos said.

“It is almost two years but not one ballot box has been opened. I hope the recount will really push through next month,” he added.#
