He would, of course, despise the workings of democracy. He was weaned on dictatorship after all. He is a dictator’s scion through and through.
Albeit called unofficial, the data of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) is from COMELEC’s own database. It is not fabricated. It is not rigged like surveys.
The parallel counting conducted by the citizens arm do not cause confusion. On the contrary, the transparency it affords encourages confidence on the election results. It is a vanguard against fraud. It is a weapon against another blatant mockery to democracy like Marcos’ 1986 snap election.
It is appalling that Ferdinand Marcos Jr’s dissenting opinion is anchored on his personal perception, his so-called exit polls and his self-serving ‘internal surveys’. He finds it unbelievable to lose the vice presidential race because his surveys say otherwise. He wants to stop PPCRV’s counting and instead asks the media to believe his own ‘internal quick-count’. He is “certain” that if PPCRV’s audit is stopped, he would emerge as winner. Is this his very own “Plan B”?
Perhaps the dictator’s son should check his bloated ego. Elections are not meant to validate his quest for power. This country is not his birthright.
Never again should we allow democracy to be bastardized.
