Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo, dowager of Interior Jesse Robredo and first-term congresswoman, won the tight VP race. The LP bet got news of her triumph as she and her three daughters, relatives and supporters went to her husband's grave in Naga City to commend his birthday.
With 14,418,817 votes, Robredo won the neck-and-neck race against Sen. Bongbong Marcos by just 263,473 votes after the three-day peddle. Four different senators lost the race.
Kenneth Arzadon, Marcos supporter writes an open letter for Sen. Bongbong Marcos. He stated that the Ilocanos are still proud of him despite that he did not win.
SENATOR BONGBONG MARCOS,
Please stop fighting... Napapagod ka na po... Balik ka na po satin sa Ilocos Norte, madaming nagmamahal sau dun... Patayo ka ng madaming madaming windmills at solar farm mula Badoc hanggang Pagudpud para after 30 years ulit, pag si Sandro na ang Governor namin, habang ang buong Pilipinas lugmok na sa kahirapan, tayo sa Ilocos tinatamasa ang magandang buhay, murang kuryente at mga libreng serbisyo.
Ang mga pinatayo ng Tatay mong FEM na mga infrastractures, mga hospital tulad ng Heart Center, Lung Center, Kidney Institute, daan tulad NLEX, SLEX, higit isang daang mga State Universities, at madaming madami pang mga naimbag nyo sa Pilipinas, (ung iba binenta na) ay mananatiling matibay tanda ng kahusayan ng pamumuno ng inyong buong pamilya. Ang mga nagawa ni President Marcos, at ng inyong buong pamilya ay mananatiling nakatayo habang buhay, pero ang lugaw, isang araw lang panis na.
It's worth the fight BBM. Mahal ka ng sambayanang Pilipino. Mabuhay ka!
WE ARE PROUD OF YOU. #BBMTheRealVP
Rizal Sychitpin on the other hand criticized Robredo and claimed that there were irregularities and cheating reason why she won.
Here's the full post:
The joint official canvass for Pres & VP are finished. Pres Rody Duterte won by landslide with the biggest number of votes in history.
CONGRATULATIONS TO PRESIDENT RODRIGO ROA DUTERTE! THE 16th PRESIDENT OF THE PHILIPPINES!
However, the VP race was filled with irregularities, the illegal changing of hashcodes at 7:30pm on May 9 Election Day, videos of cheating on the precinct level in Maguindanao, Basilan & other places showed pre-shading of ballots for Robredo, Mar & LP candidates, massive vote buying by Mar & Leni, 3.2M undervotes and statistical data showed cheating happened. The VP race is not yet finished, Comelec & Smartmatic must be investigated on the changing of hashcodes, system audit refusal & absolute inaction on election cheating
The VP race has just began, let the true will of the people prevail & not the fabricated result from rigged machines. In my opinion, Sen Bongbong Marcos is the true VP winner.
God Bless The Philippines !
God Bless Pres Rodrigo R.Duterte!
