De La Salle University's Professor of Political Science Antonio Contreras on Friday questioned why Vice President Leni Robredo and her camp is accusing President Rodrigo Duterte and Bongbong Marcos of "stealing the presidency".


He said that there is no other way for the position to be stolen from her besides impeachment, which she would not be subjected to, and an electoral protest.

Contreras said that Marcos has already presented thousands of evidence at the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, or PET.


Marcos claimed that he was cheated during the 2016 election.



"Evidence suggests statistically improbable zero-votes for all other candidates except for the Liberal Party tandem of Roxas and Robredo in many areas in the country, particularly in the ARMM. There was also a suspiciously high level of under-votes for vice president, leading one to suspect a more sinister electronic tampering of results." Contreras wrote.


He said that the protest is being investigated on in court.


Contreras said that if Leni had nothing to do with the alleged cheating, then she shouldn't be worried.


"Thus, it is totally irresponsible for Mrs. Robredo to accuse President Duterte, or his allies, working with Bongbong Marcos, to steal the vice presidency. Raising this amounts to a frontal attack on the PET, as it would impugn the integrity of its members, and the whole process." he said.


"Mrs. Robredo has to be reminded that being unseated through an electoral protest is not stealing. On the contrary, it makes her the thief of a post that is not supposed to be hers." he added.


He said that Leni should subject herself to a recount, that way the truth would be discovered.
