Statement of Atty. Vic Rodriguez, spokesperson of former Senator Bongbong Marcos

7 March 2018

“The May 9, 2016 election was the most pervasive electoral fraud in the history of the Philippines.”

- Bongbong Marcos Jr.

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos is happy that he is no longer a voice in the wilderness. He noted that other patriotic leaders and stakeholders have seen the extent of the conspiracy, interference and manipulation of the election results by Smartmatic and have begun to speak out.

We congratulate Senator Tito Sotto for bringing the election anomalies to the attention of the public.

Informed observers have wondered why — despite all the evidence of massive cheating committed by Smartmatic, the COMELEC still awarded them the contract to do the same thing all over again in the forthcoming 2019 elections. We have never understood COMELEC’s insistence in again awarding Smartmatic despite the multitude transgressions attributed to it.

All the issues raised by Senator Sotto need to be investigated and all the questions he asked need to be answered by both Smartmatic and the COMELEC.
