Election lawyer Romulo Macalintal challenged the camp of Bongbong Marcos to give up their electoral protest if their claim of "massive fraud" is not proven and claimed that he is willing to give up his license and quit as Robredo's lead counsel if Marcos wins.

He said Marcos' lawyer, Vic Rodriguez should give up his license to the Supreme Court if the allegation is proven false.

Data from at least 13 of 26 SD cards used in the elections allegedly show that cheating occured in the elections.


"I believe this is the best and most suitable way to put an end to this controversy and for the entire electorate and the Filipino people to find out who is telling the truth—Marcos or Robredo—regarding the alleged data found on these 13 SD cards," Rodriguez said.


"They should apologize to the Filipino people once it is shown and proved that their statement, like a vagrant, had no visible means of legal or factual support as they are baseless and clearly self-serving," he added.



These SD cards were among the 127 pieces found to have data during the stripping of 1,356 backup VCMs, units which Robredo's camp had pointed out are not even part of the protest Marcos lodged before the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET).


Macalintal said that their team is open to the investigations if that is the only way to prove the VP's innocence.


Macalintal said that it was "highly ridiculous, if not outright frivolous" for the Marcos camp to feel "as if they had already won the election" with the said development because the exact contents have yet to be determined.
