Marcos supporters gathered to “occupy Luneta”

Marcos supporters gathered to “occupy Luneta”

Supporters of Vice-president Candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. gathered in Luneta Park to express their support over cheating allegations in the elections.

In an Inquirer report, a Facebook post asked Marcos supporters to gather and “occupy Luneta” to prove that their bet has more voters than Liberal Part vice-presidential candidate Leni Robredo.

Recently, Marcos accused the Aquino administration of rigging the elections in favor of Robredo after she took over him in the polls a day after the official and partial canvassing.

The gathering of more than 100 people, mostly clad in red shirt, was led by a staunch Marcos loyalist Oliver Lozano.

“Yes. If you’re smart, you would have seen that [Marcos’] numbers were far [from Robredo’s],” Gie Guerrero said when asked if she believed Marcos’ claims of fraud.

“And then when we slept, just for one hour, suddenly the numbers already changed [in favor of Robredo]. That’s not fair,” added the 62-year-old resident of Parañaque City.

In the latest tallying, Robredo is still the presumed vice-president of the country after the votes from Mindanao and the overseas Filipino voters were received.
