A human rights group has called on the public to express their rejection of Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Sara Duterte as they lead the number of unofficial transmitted votes from yesterday’s elections, saying they represent the “the worst brand of traditional politics and governance.”
Day: May 10, 2022
Anti-election fraud group Kontra Daya reported systematic red-tagging against the opposition and progressive candidates on election day, May 9.
A day after the May 9 elections, supporters of Leni Robredo, members of election watchdogs and progressive groups hold a symbolic protest in front of the Commission on Elections office in Manila against what they called as the ‘dirtiest’ election in recent years.
But the combination of a campaign of historical distortion, vote buying, a Duterte-appointed COMELEC, red-tagging and relentless attacks on critics and opposition has created an election result that would bring a Marcos back to
Malacanang 50 years after the declaration of martial law.
