Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos is puzzled why Vice President Leni Robredo’s camp is ‘underplaying’ the supposed issue of some wet ballots in Camarines Sur.
The Ilocos Norte politiko said wet ballots cannot be read.
“Pinagtataka namin ina-underplay nila itong mga wet ballots. Ayaw nilang payagan na dapat invalid na dapat ‘yan ‘di ba? ‘Pag nakita mong spoiled by liquifying, by wetting, eh talagang ‘di nababasa,” she said.
The ballot recount for former senator Bongbong Marcos’s electoral protest against Robredo began on Monday.
The defeated vice presidential candidate said it was “laughable” that Robredo’s lawyer, Romulo Macalintal, said the ballot boxes became wet because Camarines Sur was hit by a typhoon.
“We find it ridiculous, almost laughable, that Robredo’s lawyer, Attorney Macalintal, readily explained that the reason why the ballot boxes were wet was because there was a storm in Camarines Sur,” he said.
