Vice-presidential candidate and Camarines Sur Representative Maria Leonor "Leni" Robredo supports rival Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s request to conduct an audit of the transparency servers to finally shed light on the doubts that started when a new script was introduced to the server.
Leni Robredo, who is leading by an estimate of 200,00 votes over Marcos said in an interview that she stays uneasy since there are also cheating allegations against her.
"Sang ayon ako na may system audit para maalis yung lahat ng duda tungkol sa integridad ng proseso ng eleksyon. Yung akin lang yung mga ganung hakbang okay sakin yun. Yung hindi okay sa akin yung nagpaparatang na nandaya na wala namang basehan. Yung mag-o-audit, titingnan. Palagay ko hindi lang siya yung magbe-benefit pati din ako," she told reporters.
However, she said that cheating accusation against her can be considered as mind-conditioning.
"Sa akin lang ano... sana wala silang binabalak na pandaraya na gagawin sa canvassing. Kasi yung winoworry ko ngayon klaro naman yung numero pero parang mina-mind condition nila. Hindi ko alam yung precursor ito to something. Pero sana hindi," she said.
Robredo also expressed her high hopes of an honest election, without the intention of cheating on the part of her rival’s party.
"Sana lang walang balak na pandaraya. Kasi alam naman natin na may history na ganun. Hindi natin makakalimutan yung nangyari nung 1986 na siguro kung hindi nag walk out yung mga tabulators baka nadaya nga tayo. Yung sa akin nagwoworry ako yung numero nila iba sa numero namin, iba sa numero ng Comelec. Nagtatanong lang ako bakit ganun... na ito SD cards ito di ba. Iisa lang naman dapat yung pinanggalingan. Bakit iba yung numero nila."
"Sana hindi ito precursor sa isang plano na hindi maganda."
Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. asked the Commission on Elections to permit his IT team to conduct an audit of the servers used in the May 9 National Elections.
“I am formally requesting this honorable Commission permit my team of IT experts and programmers, within three (3) days from receipt hereof, to conduct an audit of the Transparency Server and the Central Server, under the close supervision of this Commission and its technical personnel," Senator Marcos stated in a letter he sent to the COMELEC.
The senator said that he wants to be assured that the data is not altered in other ways.
