RECOUNT: ROBREDO LOST 5,000 VOTES IN CAMSUR DUE TO PET RULING OF 50% SHADED THRESHOLD





The ongoing recounts of the probe in the Vice-Presidential Election in 2016, revisors revealed that there is an actual lost of 5,000 votes for Robredo in 210 precincts in Camarines Sur as a result of the PET ruling that only ballots which were shaded 50 percent should be counted as valid votes.



There are 1,400 ballot boxes in 5,418 clustered precincts in the three provinces Camarines Sur, Iloilo, and Negros Oriental identified by former Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong”Marcos Jr. in his election protest against Robredo.
But there were allegations that Robredo filed a petition that PET should apply 25 percent in the recount. PET denied the motion and still stand that the revisors should used 50 percent as per issued in the  “amendment in Resolution No. 9164, Rule 15, Section 6 of Resolution No. 8804 states that any shading less than 50 per cent shall not be considered a valid vote. The wording is in fact the same as Section 43(1) of the 20 I 0 PET Rules. Comelec Resolution No. 9164, however, removed the 50 per cent threshold but did not impose a new threshold.”
