BBM is number 7 in official Comelec ballot

4 May 2022

THE camp of presidential frontrunner former Sen. Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos has urged the public especially their supporters to be extra-vigilant after reports surfaced that some quarters were coming up with misleading sample ballots with a different assigned number other than his Comelec -designated number 7.

Atty. Vic Rodriguez said that their opponents were obviously trying to confuse the voters in their effort to have their favored candidate obtain the votes that were actually intended for BBM.

“We denounce in the strongest possible terms the attempt to mislead and deceive the Filipino voting population with the assigning of another number for presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. in sample ballots and tarpaulins, which are being distributed in certain communities and displayed in public places,” said Rodriguez.

“The evil intention behind the deception is clearly to steal from Marcos Jr.'s overwhelming lead in the presidential race — his historic preferential rating shown in all the reputable national surveys confirm that the vast majority of Filipinos prefer him to become the next president of the country,” he added.

Rodriguez pointed out that sample ballots are supposed to guide voters to properly vote but their opponents instead used them a means to deceive and confuse the voting public.

“The sample ballot should have been to guide the public. In this instance however, whoever is behind it, intends to make BBM supporters remember the wrong number. Marcos Jr.’s official number on the ballot is #7,” said Rodriguez.

At the same time, Rodriguez called on all BBM-Sara UniTeam supporters to help in disseminating the message that Marcos' number on the ballot is number 7 (seven) and nothing else!

“We should spread the word: Marcos Jr. is Number 7 on the ballot. Let us protect the next president by ascertaining and protecting our votes,” Rodriguez stressed

FILIPINO VERSION

BBM #7 SA BALOTA WALA NANG IBA!

HINDI dapat malito ang milyon-milyong tagasuporta ni Partido Federal ng Pilipinas (PFP) presidential frontrunner Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos, Jr., dahil ang numero nito sa balota ay 7 (siyete) at wala nang iba.

Ito ang sinabi ni Atty. Vic Rodriguez, spokesman at chief of staff ni Marcos, matapos maglabas ng pahayag para batikusin ang maruming paraan ng mga kalaban upang lituhin ang numero ni BBM sa balota.

“We denounce in the strongest possible terms the attempt to mislead and deceive the Filipino voting population with the assigning of another number for presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. in sample ballots and tarpaulins, which are being distributed in certain communities and displayed in public places,” ani Rodriguez.

“The evil intention behind the deception is clearly to steal from Marcos Jr.’s overwhelming lead in the presidential race — his historic preferential rating shown in all the reputable national surveys confirm that the vast majority of Filipinos prefer him to become the next president of the country,” sabi pa niya.

Inilabas ang pahayag na ito sa gitna ng panlilito at panlilinlang na ginagawa ng katunggali ni Marcos para makahikayat ng boto pabor sa kanila sa mali at panlolokong paraan!

“The sample ballot should have been to guide the public. In this instance however, whoever is behind it, intends to make BBM supporters remember the wrong number. Marcos Jr.’s official number on the ballot is #7,” wika pa ni Rodriguez.

Kasabay nito, nanawagan ang kampo ni Marcos sa lahat ng mga tagasuporta sa loob at labas ng bansa na ipakalat ang mensaheng ang numero ni Marcos sa balota ay numero 7 (siyete) at wala nang iba!

Sa ganitong paraan lamang aniya malalabanan ang maruming taktika ng mga kalaban na mga desperado na dahil apat na araw na lang ay iboboto na ng mayorya ng sambayanang Pilipino si Marcos bilang ika-17 pangulo ng Republika ng Pilipinas.

“We should spread the word: Marcos Jr. is Number 7 on the ballot. Let us protect the next president by ascertaining and protecting our votes,” pagtatapos pa ni Rodriguez.
