With more than 90 percent of votes transmitted, adminstration and independent candidates dominate the top 12 slots up for grabs. The only blight on the list is Bong Revilla who was, until now, detained on charges of corruption.
What is left for the Yellowtard-led Opposition to do? Why cry bloody “electoral fraud” of course.
We all know the drill.
The trouble with that option is that the unofficial results so far are consistent with numerous surveys conducted by independent firms led by Social Weather Stations (SWS) and Pulse Asia. The only thing the Yellowtards can count on is the dismal credibility of the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) — the single common denominator underlying electoral fraud over the last several decades.
But the Yellowtards had essentially shot themselves in the foot back in 2016 when they aggressively dismissed charges of cheating back then when their lackey, the disgraced Andy Bautista, ruled over the COMELEC as its chairman.
Tough shit is pretty much the only thing one could say about the plight of the Yellowtards, the broader Opposition and the communists at the fringes who piggyback on the quaint demonisation campaign they have been mounting against the administration of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.
