The Supreme Court, acting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), deferred voting on the election protest filed by former senator Ferdinand ‘Bongbong’ Marcos Jr. against Vice President Leni Robredo..
Supreme Court Public Information Office chief Brian Keith Hosaka confirmed that PET did not take action on the vice presidential election protest during the session of the tribunal on Tuesday, Oct. 8.
“The said case remains pending and is still being deliberated by members of the tribunal,” Hosaka said in a statement.
Per reports, the high court of the Philippines has rescheduled the deliberations to Oct. 15.
In 2016, Marcos, who lost in the vice presidential elections by more than 260,000 votes, challenged the victory of Robredo and claimed that massive cheating happened during the nationwide polls.
