Atty. Romulo Macalintal cries "no evidence" on irregularities as the recount of votes in the 2016 vice presidential elections continued.

Macalintal said the Marcos camp also has not presented any evidence to prove the massive irregularities they said they had found.

In an interview at the start of the recount on Monday, Marcos told reporters that all the ballots in four precincts in Bato, Camarines Sur, were soaked in water when they were opened.

Camarines Sur is one of three provinces covered by the recount. The other two are Iloilo and Negros Oriental.

Marcos said it was impossible for the ballots to have been wet for the last two years. He added that out of 42 precincts in Bato, 38 have missing audit logs.

He said the audit log would show the time when the precinct opened, the time the vote was cast, and the time the precinct closed. It would also show if there was batch voting and if someone voted beyond the voting hours, he added.

On Wednesday, Marcos’ spokesman Atty. Vic Rodriguez also quoted sources claiming that there were ballots pre-shaded for Robredo.

But Macalintal maintained that wet ballots, unused ballots, and missing audit logs are not evidence of irregularity in an election.

Meanwhile, Netizens are not so happy about Macalintal and Leni. Read some of their reactions below:

What can you say to Robredo's lawyer Atty. Macalintal guys? Naniniwala ba kayo sa kanya? Kayo na po maghusga mga ka-DDS.
