THE scheming, shameless Marcoses are at it again!
While the whole nation is reeling under the weight of crisis after crisis in the economic and political field, the Marcoses are in a mad bid to regain power.
Despite the fact that the Supreme Court (SC), sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), has already finished recounting the ballots of 5,415 precicnts of the three pilot provinces (Iloilo, Negros Oriental and Camarines Sur), the Supreme Court en banc still has not made any action.
This inaction of the SC makes us wary. The Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses in Malacañang (Carmma) is a witness to how the Marcoses subverted our democratic institutions to maintain their stranglehold on the government, entrenched themselves in Malacañang, while emptying our nation’s coffers. We are also witness to how the present administration has not jailed Imelda Marcos in spite of her November 2018 conviction in seven counts of graft for using her Cabinet position to maintain Swiss bank accounts during the Marcos dictatorship.
We are very aware of the Marcoses’ intent, a complete return to the highest seat of power, and their complete rehabilitation. They want the Marcos electoral protest to be their gold-lined path towards a comeback. But Carmma, together with the people, has been and will keep on raising our voices. We must not allow this to happen. (By Campaign Against the Return of the Marcoses in Malacañang)
