On the PET ruling
VP NOLI: LET THE TRUE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE BE KNOWN
The true voice of the people will be confirmed.
This was the confident reaction of Vice President Noli “Kabayan” De
Castro to the latest resolution of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal
(PET) on the election protest of defeated vice presidential candidate,
former Senator Loren Legarda-Leviste.
Patuloy ko pa ring kinikilala ang kapangyarihan at kakayahan ng Korte
Suprema na pagpasyahan ang electoral protest na ito. Naniniwala
ako na iisa ang aming layunin: na lumabas ang katotohanan sa nakaraang
eleksyon para sa pagka-bise presidente.
The Vice President reaffirmed his faith in the judicial system as he
vowed to uphold the country’s legal and constitutional processes.
The PET, in its resolution, emphasized that even as it finds the
protest sufficient in form and substance, “nothing as yet has been
proved as to the veracity of the allegations.”
