Sen. Marcos earlier Asked to Stop the Unofficial Tally of Votes.
Stopping the Unofficial Tally. Following the call of Vice Presidential runner Sen. Bongbong Marcos’ camp to stop the partial and unofficial counting of votes, Election expert Atty. Romula Macalintal said the quick count of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) is for the public and not for the candidates.
Macalintal said that the camp of Marcos cannot stop the quick count of the PPCRV because of the transparency server created by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) is for the people entitled to vote.
Earlier Marcos himself called to stop the partial and unofficial counting of votes to which his camp claimed as alarming and suspicious.
This is after Liberal Party’s bet Rep. Leni Robredo took the lead from Marcos at around 3: 00 am on Tuesday.
PPCRV continues its partial and unofficial counting of votes.
For Robredo, there is no reason for the PPCRV to suspend its quick count.
“Dapat malaman ni Mr. Marcos na yung PPCRV tally, para sa taong bayan yun at hindi sa kandidato lang. Hindi puwede mapigilan yan dahil lang siya ay nalalamangan.” Macalintal firmed.
Amid the speculations coming from Marcos’ camp about the election fraud, Macalintal said that he must wait for the official tally and the proclamation of the congress before crying for fraud and file and election protest at the Presidential Electoral Tribunal.
As of posting Robredo still on the lead with more than 200, 000 vote advantage over Marcos with 13, 719, 659 votes through the partial and unofficial results representing 95. 45% of the Election Returns.
