Lawyers of Vice President Leni Robredo filed a motion asking the Supreme Court (SC) to reconsider its ruling that junked her appeal to dismiss the election protest filed against her by former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
Robredo's camp, in the appeal filed February 27, argued that the alleged irregularities were not specified for all the areas included in Marcos' election protest, contrary to the SC ruling.
In its January 24, 2017 decision, the SC said: "Marcos' protest questioning the results in various provinces consisting of 662 municipalities and their component cities and the 2,537 clustered from 5 highly urbanized cities, contained narration of ultimate facts on the alleged irregularities and anomalies in said areas and clustered precincts."
But according to Robredo's lawyers, the affidavits submitted only pertain to 57 of the 662 municipalities and component cities.
"There are 662 municipalities in total from the 22 provinces included in the protest. Marcos was able to attach affidavits [for] 57 municipalities but the affidavits are pro forma and some were even denied by the people who allegedly made them," said lawyer Beng Sardillo.
