Caloocan Assistant Prosecutor, if I am not mistaken, Atty. Darwin Canete shared his thoughts on Leni camp’s statement expressing continuing manifestation that they interpose no objection to the inclusion of all COCs via her lawyer, Atty. Romulo Macalintal.
In a Facebook post, Atty. Darwin complimented, albeit not in a nice way, Leni Robredo’s strategy, calling it “madugas” or deceitful. Why? Atty. Darwin said Robredo’s move of not challenging the canvassing of COCs because if ever the Supreme Court will decide on their favor regarding petition against BBM, she can readily accept this because her camp can claim that BBM’s 31M votes are stray votes.
Hence, Leni Robredo refused to categorically admit losing to BBM so that her camp’s petition at the SC will not be affected, in case she is the beneficiary of a favorable decision.
Atty. Darwin ended the brief FB to tell Leni Robredo that if they thought they can get away with such rotten style, they are mistaken.
Here are some of the comments of netizens expressing their opinion on Leni Robredo’s “strategy”.
One netizen wrote that Leni camp’s plan is no fool-proof because after BBM-Sara are proclaimed today, Sara will replace BBM if the court favors their petition at the SC asking to declare BBM’s COC void ab initio.
SC was obviously not gonna issue a TRO because they give bbm camp and comelec 15days to reply .. Now kung ma proclaim na mamaya and by some miracle e grant ng SC yung petition. Sara as VP, will replace BBM .. Still a no-no for those Pinklawan idiots
A second netizen also shared the same line of reasoning.
well true. Pag na proclaim na mamya yan moot and academic na sa SC. Wala na sila jurisdiction..sa PET na yan unless they file a quo warranto sa SC
You may now read Atty. Darwin’s orginal FB post below.
Madugas yung diskarte kay Mrs. Robredo. Hindi niya haharangin yung canvassing pero kung sakali pagbigyan ng Supreme Court yung petition laban kay BBM eh puede niyang tanggapin dahil ipalalabas na stray votes yung 31 million. I think that’s why she is not categorically admitting she lost to BBM. Para hindi affected yung SC petition in case siya yung makinabang. Anong akala niyo, di bistado sa ganung style bulok?
