Today marks WEEK 30 of BBM’s election protest.
216 days have passed since BBM filed his election protest on 29 June 2016.
On 26 January 2017, BBM filed an Ex-Parte Motion to Set[the]Case for Preliminary Conference with the PET. He asked the High Tribunal to schedule a preliminary conference for his election protest since, under Rule 29 of A.M. No. 10-4-29-SC of the 2010 PET Rules, the issues in this case had already been joined and the last pleading in relation to the said joinder was filed and served over 4 months ago - - on 9 September 2016.
As of this date, we are waiting for the PET :
• to issue a Retrieval Order [per undertaking # 7 of 21] and
• to issue a Notice of Preliminary Conference [per undertaking # 8 of 21]
