Philippine Election 2010
Electoral Protest in the Philippines
Here we go again, the loosing vice presidential candidate of Philippine Election 2010, Mar Roxas have officially file an electoral protest against the now newly elected Philippine vice president Jejomar Binay, just like what ex senator Ms. Loren Legarda did against former TV colleagues former Philippine vice president Noli de Castro when she loose the vice presidential race of the 2004 Philippine National Election. Not only Ms. Loren Legarda file an electoral protest but also the late Philippine actor FPJ (Fernando Poe Jr.) who could not accept that he lost the Presidential race which cause him his untimely death because some have convince him that he was just cheated by his opponent former Philippine president Ms. Gloria Arroyo, even though this is not yet lawfully verified up until now.
Not only bigger names in politics do make electoral protests when they could not accept that they have loose the race, but also ordinary candidates on local positions. So why do they could not accept that they are a looser and resort into an electoral protest of being cheated and do a repetitive “people power” just like what the supporters of FPJ did?
If they do not trust the Philippines’ electoral system, why they still run for a government seat in the Philippines?
The worse to this electoral protest is the indoctrination that the newly elected government official is a fraud one and most Pilipinos believe it, though it is only a defamation to support the electoral protest of the loosing candidate. Just like what happened to former Philippine president Ms. Gloria Arroyo, who was defamed and maligned so much to prove she is a fraud and FPJ is the real elected one, whereas the presented evidences were just too very lame and doctored.
When this dirty tactics in Philippine politics will end?
