The Makati Business Club (MBC) is in favor of dismissing former senator Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo.
The MBC, in a statement, said it welcomed the Supreme Court’s (SC) ruling to release the results of the test recount in three pilot provinces in Marcos’ electoral protest.
The SC also directed both camps to comment on the results.
“We hope this is a step toward dismissing the protest, and reducing the political and judicial uncertainty that came with it,” the MBC said in its statement.
The MBC pointed out that the “uncertainty” brought about by the electoral protest “manifests in risk premiums for those who would invest in Philippine jobs and industries.”
