PET has limited the number of witnesses each camp can present, but Magalona said that even PET will not allow the three officials to testify, their affidavits and actual evidence are enough for Marcos to win against the sitting Vice President Leni Robredo.
Marcos filed an electoral protest against Robredo, citing massive election frauds.
Three provinces are set to be recounted based on Marcos’ request. They are Camarines Sur, Negros Oriental, and Negros Occidental. Marcos believe that he could win by recounting just the mentioned three provinces. /Olive Lozano/
