The Manila Times - SC junks Robredo plea to dismiss Marcos poll protest

18 July 2019

By The Manila Times

THE Supreme Court on Thursday junked an urgent motion filed by Vice President Maria Leonor“Leni” Robredo, which sought the dismissal of former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos’ election protest.

The high tribunal, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), issued the resolution dated July 2 but was only released on Thursday.

The PET seeks to “immediately resolve” all pending cases filed by Marcos in connection with alleged irregularities during the May 2016 polls where Robredo defeated Marcos. JOMAR CANLAS
