Robredo's camp fires back to BBM's claim as the real VP: He must be dreaming

The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo mocked the statement of former Senator Ferdinand Bongbong Marcos Jr. that he won the vice presidential race in 2016.

Atty. Romulo Macalintal, Robredo's counsel said it's presumptuous for Marcos to claim he won the race or he was dreaming.

"If he won as vice president, why is it that it was Robredo who was proclaimed by Congress as winner? said Macalintal.

Earlier yesterday, Marcos turned down running for th Senate 2019, giving emphasize that he still believes he won as vice president and he wants to finish the electoral protest he filed against Leni.

On the other hand, Macalintal believes Marcos is claiming to be the real winner to preempt the results of the vote recount.

“It is our strong position based on past recount of ballots in previous automated polls that no one has ever won in a recount of automated ballots,” he added.

The legal counsel also said the results of the recount will just tally with the results generated by the vote counting machines from the automated election system.

“We hope that Mr. Marcos is not using this protest for political media mileage,” he concluded.
