The National Democratic Front Negros Island called on Negrosanons whose votes it claims to have been stolen, to rise up and organize in order to prevent the return Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and his family to Malacañang.
While the various revolutionary underground organizations must draw more people to the revolution, NDF Negros spokesman Bayani Obrero, in a statement, said that the NPA must also intensify its tactical offensives against the government.
We must prepare for hard battles ahead of us, and gather all our strength and courage, to unite and mobilize greater number of Negrosanons to block the path of Marcos Jr. back to Malacañang, Obrero said.
He alleged that the recent elections will go down in history as one of the most fraudulent ever held, with outgoing President Rodrigo Duterte wielding control over the automated electoral system through his appointed top Comelec officials.
Despite of this, the people of Negros Occidental managed to deliver a victory for Robredo, with Duterte’s bet for governor in Negros Oriental, Roel Degamo, losing by sizeable margin, Obrero further said.
Several local candidates who are openly or discreetly supportive of Robredo won in an upset against much more entrenched political families allied with Duterte, he further said.*
