Vice President Leni Robredo said she is praying that former senator Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against her be resolved soon so that the Ilocos Norte politiko will not have a chance to lie again.
Robredo was reacting to the upcoming ballot recount in February.
“Ito, iyong ating lang pagdadasal na mabilis ma-resolve [itong kaso]. Ano din ito, habang hindi kasi siya nare-resolve, nagkakaroon ng pagkakataon si Marcos na gumawa ng mga kuwento kahit hindi totoo. Pero kapag na-resolve na ito sa lalong madaling panahon, wala nang space para gumawa ng hindi naman totoong kuwento,” Robredo said.
Ballot retrieval is being conducted in Robredo’s home province Camarines Sur this week.
Marcos filed an electoral protest against the Vice President for alleged cheating in the 2016 elections.
But Robredo said she is confident of her victory against Marcos.
“Wala namang kaba sa atin kasi alam natin, sigurado tayo, na walang nangyaring dayaan noong eleksyon. At iyong inaasahan nating resulta nito ay pareho din noong resulta noong eleksyon,” Robredo said.#
