Statement of Atty. Vic Rodriguez Chief of Staff and Spokesperson of presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos

10 February 2022

On the Comelec 1st Division’s dismissal of BBM’s disqualification cases:

“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.

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.

While we call on this seemingly misguided segment of our society to stop spreading lies against presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos, we nonetheless extend 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.”
