Vice Presidency of the Philippines – Latest

The 2016 election for President and Vice President in the Philippines is a worthy saga on par with the adventures of the classic Beowulf.

In fact it is more exacting in parts as it has given not only the Philippines but the world Duterte, a charismatic man, though not to everyone’s cup of tea, someone who cannot be ignored.

This election had made famous Rodrigo Duterte in the Philippines as its duly elect president and rather infamous with the rest of the world  🙂 because of his bloody war on drugs.

The lesser role of vice president, though Leni Robredo was duly sworn as the winner, is still being contested due to alleged ballots tampering and cheating.

Bongbong Marcos had continually opined that there was a massive anomaly during the election.  His complaint had been finally heard by the Supreme Court and had started a recount in the last couple of days.

This new recount, which is done manually, had apparently not started well as four of the psychologically tested number crunchers have resigned.

Perhaps they have to look into the psychological form of testing as well.  🙂

I told you, it is all exciting.

Will Leni be able to stay?

Watch this space.
