NTF-ELCAC: ‘Respect the will of the Filipino people’

MANILA, Philippines- Sa pagdagsa ng iba’t ibang grupo sa harap ng Commission on Elections (Comelec) main office sa Intramuros, Manila nitong Martes upang mag-protesta sa umano’y malawakang electoral fraud sa Halalan 2022, hinikayat sila ng National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) na respetuhin ang desisyon ng mga Pilipino upang maiwasang maging parte ng problema.

“The people have spoken. Respect that voice. Otherwise, you will lose whatever is left of your self-respect and dignity by crying over something that has been decided already by the masses. Cope with your defeat. Respect the will of the Filipino people,” pahayag ni NTF-ELCAC Acting Spokesperson for Legal Affairs Flosemer Chris Gonzales.

“If you cannot bear to accept the election results and be part of nation-building, do not be a part of the problem. This is a time for unity and solidarity,” patuloy pa niya.

“Do not waste your time and your future in the company of a bunch of misguided and disgruntled mob who cannot be decent and gracious enough to accept the will of the Filipino people.”

Inilarawan ni Gonzales ang protesta bilang “act of desperation”, at sinabing ang mga grupo ay “supporters of a presidential candidate and several senatorial candidates allied with the said presidential aspirant who lost ng bonggang bongga during the May 9, 2022 elections.”

Hindi naman niya pinangalanan ang presidential candidate at senatorial candidates.

Ani Gonzales, tungkulin ng pamahalaan na paalalahanan ang mga nagpo-protesta “to stay within the bounds of the law.”

“Do not force the government to use the full force of the law against you. Do not also allow yourselves to be used and exploited by anti-government elements to advance their selfish agenda,” babala niya.

Ang protesta ay kasunod ng paglalabas ng partial and unofficial count base sa transparency server ng Comelec kung saan namamayagpag si former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. at kanyang running mate na si Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte sa presidential at vice presidential race. RNT/SA
