The Supreme Court (SC), which is now serving as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), has rejected Vice President Leni Robredo's motion to strike-out former Senator Bongbong Marcos' electoral protest in a resolution dated January 24.

The decision to the resolution released by the SC on Thursday, February 16 says, "Marcos' poll protest is sufficient in form and substance but he needs to prove the allegations in due time."

The PET also clarified that "while the Tribunal finds the protest sufficient in form and substance," the allegations are not yet proven, and Marcos' camp will have to present evidence to back up the claim.

The resolution also detailed that the protest is only sufficient in form which is just enough for the Tribunal to proceed and give the protestant the opportunity to prove his case.

PET also said no to Marcos' plea to reject Robredo's response to the protest, which was allegedly filed late.

PET reasoned that since the original deadline had fallen on a weekend, having the response on the next working day just about made it on time.
