The spokesman of presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos thanked the Commission on Elections (Comelec) for dropping from the ballot the two other Marcoses who want to vie for the presidency.

“We commend the Comelec for its decision declaring Tiburcio Marcos and Maria Aurora Marcos nuisance candidates,” Atty. Vic Rodriguez said in a statement.

“We give it to the members of this august body for seeing through the schemes and machinations of certain political camps to make a mockery of the electoral process by resorting to gutter politics.”

“This decision signals that democracy is still alive in our country; and as it prevails, no one shall trample on the people’s right to vote for their choice of candidate,” the abogado added, saying the poll body heeded “truth and wisdom” in making such a decision.
