Vice President Leni Robredo said Tuesday the truth has prevailed after the Supreme Court unanimously dismissed the electoral protest filed by Former Senator Bongbong Marcos against her.

“Ngayong araw, nanaig ang katotohanan. Naitaguyod ang tunay na pasya noong 2016,” Robredo said in a press conference.

“Naniwala kami na sa dulo, katotohanan ang mananaig. Naniwala kami sa proseso, naniwala kami sa integridad ng PET justices. We are happy and grateful that this trust was affirmed.”

“Tagumpay natin itong lahat,” she added.

In the 2016 vice presidential contest, Robredo beat Marcos by a lead of 263,473 votes.

However, Robredo’s lead increased by 15,000 after Marcos called for a manual recount in three provinces — Iloilo, Negros Oriental, and Camarines Sur.
