MANILA – Former Senator Bongbong Marcos seeks the dismissal of the counter-protest filed by Vice President Leni Robredo.
Marcos argues that Robredo failed to comply with the order of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) to pay an initial cash deposit of eight million pesos.
Based on PET’s rules, it can dismiss an election protest if the complainant fails to file a protest fee.
Marcos has also asked the tribunal anew to set a preliminary conference for his protest.
Robredo’s camp previously insisted that they will pay the said deposit only when the tribunal sees merit in the election protest of the former senator. — UNTV News & Rescue
