Marcos spox on CARMMA’s petition: Their right ‘regardless of dim chances of success’

Billy Begas

The camp of presumptive president Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Wednesday said it is understandable for the Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses and Martial Law (CARMMA) to exhaust all their remedies under the law “regardless of the dim chances of success.”

Atty. Vic Rodriguez, spokesperson and chief of staff of Marcos, issued the statement after CARMMA with several others filed a petition before the Supreme Court seeking to disqualify Marcos in the recent presidential race and declare Vice President Leni Robredo the winner.

“We live in a democracy and they enjoy rights under the Constitution, including an appeal or to seek for a restraining order,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez said “We are confident, though, that the processes will uphold the overwhelming mandate that president-elect Bongbong Marcos has earned in the elections and we continue to call for unity and for all of us to move forward and proceed the national activity of building this nation.”

Based on the unofficial tally, Marcos got more than 31 million votes while Robredo has more than 14 million votes.
