Robredo zero vote in 18 clustered precincts, Marcos garnered all votes.
Lawyer says, Robredo zero vote in at least 18 clustered precincts together with other three presidential candidates in several provinces, while Marcos garnered all votes.
Robredo’s lawyer Romulo Macalintal said in an interview at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City , that getting a zero vote in clustered barangays is possible to happen not only to Marcos based on his claims, but also to Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo.
Data has shown that Marcos gained the 100 percent of votes cast, garnering a total of 6,828 votes while other candidates gained zero.
Some of the said areas are the Barangay Langil in Basilan (563 votes); Santa Praxedes, Cagayan (63 votes); Macupit Elementary School, Ilocos Norte (364 votes); Pias-Gaang in Pias, Ilocos Norte (105 votes); Apatut-Lubong in Pinili, Ilocos Norte (189); Puzol Elementary School in Pinili, Ilocos Norte (154 votes). Sitio Nagtenga, Ilocos Norte (327 votes); Bannawag, Anganadan in Isabela (327 votes); Bagong Buhay, Palayan City in Nueva Ecija (325 votes); Tagumpay National High School in San Jose, Rizal (576 votes); Pantao in Talipao, Sulu (204 votes) and New Era Elementary school in Tandang Sora, Quezon City (657 votes).
“In areas that are clannish or where political leaders really have a strong grip, they usually give zero votes,” Robredo’s Lawyer said. “Even the Supreme Court recognizes the fact that it happens and zero votes are acceptable.” he added.
It is known last week that Marcos receives reports from some provinces that the transmitted votes to the Comelec server, giving all votes to Robredo and zero to the other candidates which raised his suspicions of election rigging. He said that the recorded incidents occurred in Lanao del Sur, Cotabato City and other provinces in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and he consider such reports to be statistically impossible.
