What a way to win!
The canvassing of votes is finished and the official tally showed Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo winning over Sen. Ferdinand Marco Jr. on the day of her late husband’s 58th birthday.
What was supposedly Jesse’s position had he lived now belongs to the wife and what a fitting recognition and compliment his death left Leni with.
If this is not Divine intervention, I don’t know what is.
Marcos should realize now that the Filipinos had had enough of the Marcos name, that if they overwhelmingly voted for incoming-president Rodrigo Duterte because the latter symbolizes political will and change, then having the worst traditional politician in the mold of the son of the dictator as vice president will not augur well for the country and its people.
What I am saying is that if indeed there will be change beneficial for the country and the people under the Duterte administration, then it is imperative that these advantageous changes will be sustained after the six-year term of Duterte is over by a leader whose dream and motivation is akin to that of Duterte, although the ways things are done may defer while attaining the same goal.
It is for this reason that Robredo miraculously won because the country has to be in good, competent and caring hands of a selfless leader to continue moving forward towards growth and development and not in the hands of a Marcos whose sole motivation for running is as wicked as wanting to be president one day motivated by the ill-thought of advancing further the interest of their family instead that of the country and its people and trying to exalt and dignify once more the leadership of his despot father, not to mention in peddling the lie that the conjugal dictatorship was the best thing that ever happened to the country.
For Marcos not accepting defeat and vehemently accusing Robredo instead of cheating, as if chirping about the undervotes will help him win, Robredo’s victory can only be aptly described as poetic justice.
