Sparks are sure to fly when Marcos Jr., decides not to accept the results of the recent vice-presidential election, and file an election protest instead, alleging the existence of a "fourth server" used to queue messages from the voting machines to the main servers that had not been certified beforehand as immune to tampering.
While previously adopting a gentlemanly pose with respect to his rival, Marcos Jr is now all fired up after he was called a liar.
On the other hand, President-elect Duterte decided not to attend the Philippines National Day celebrations with outgoing President Aquino III, who was warning the country of the dangers of dictatorship. This is unfortunate, but not unexpected. Elections, fairly conducted, can ameliorate rivalries, but when conducted under a lot of questions, can inflame them instead. This was a chance for peace, missed not by Marcos Jr., who tried his best to play by the rules, but by the rulemakers themselves, who paid no heed to his cries of their undemocratic violation. It is a long road to freedom, and only truth and love can find the way.
This is what happens when a sovereign people depends on foreign firms to guarantee their sovereignty.
Self-reliance is the hard way, but also the best way.
