The camp of presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos hailed the ruling made by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) First Division to dismiss the disqualification cases against him.

“We again commend the honorable members of the Comelec’s 1st Division for upholding the law by dismissing cases that we have long described as nuisance petitions,” said Marcos spokesperson lawyer Vic Rodriguez in a statement.

“The Petitioners in this case, Ilagan, Akbayan, Etta Rosales and Mangelen, were found guilty of lying and of deliberately misleading the Comelec by intentionally quoting the wrong provisions of the law and squeezed them into their faulty narratives,” the lawyer pointed out.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez called on “this seemingly misguided segment of our society to stop spreading lies against presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos.”

At the same time, he said the Marcos camp is also extending “our hands of unity and continue with our call for them and every Filipino to join us in shaping a better and united future for our people.”

“Tama na ang away, tama na ang bangayan, sama-sama natin harapin ang bukas na may taglay na pag-asa at pagkakaisa,” he stated.
