Bongbong Marcos accuses PET of being biased vs him

(Eagle News) — Former Senator Bongbong Marcos on Wednesday accused the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, of being “biased against” him in the electoral case he filed against Vice President Leni Robredo.

Marcos said he was contemplating as such to ask that Associate Justice Alfredo Benjamin Caguioa be changed as chair of the tribunal as he said it was “obvious” he  was siding with the vice president, whose camp he has accused of cheating in the 2016 elections.

Caguioa is an appointee of former President Benigno Aquino III, Robredo’s party-mate.

According to Marcos, recent decisions of the PET were “unfair and unjust.”

For instance, he said the tribunal ordered Marcos to pay P2,974,075 that represents the cost of decryption and printing of ballot images from pilot provinces, while Robredo was given soft copies of reports from the SD cards from Iloilo, Camarines Sur and Negros Oriental without her paying for anything.

“We should definitely do something para maging pantay at matapos na ito,” Marcos said.

Marcos lost to Robredo by 263,473 votes.
