Hi Cita, I agree with your comments 100 per cent. Based on the reports gathered, The Tribunal ruled in July 2008 "that there was solid evidence of fraud...." This being so, Zubiri never had any right at all to stay in office after this discovery. If a person has integrity and decency, the best thing he could have done was to give up his seat to the rightful winner, Koko Pimentel. What Koko did when he found out about the alleged fraud, he a filed a protest. The protest was granted, and the result of the recount shows that Koko Pimentel has established an insurmountable lead of about 300,000 over Zubiri, who had usurped and stole the senate seat (if I may borrow your own words) from Day 1 up to the present. Zubiri had spent the budget that could otherwise have been allotted to Koko Pimentel. But that is not that important. What is more important is for Zubiri to relinquish his seat ASAP so that the person whose constituents gave Koko their full trust and confidence to represent them in the halls of Senate, should be allowed to take over his seat gracefully so he could discharge his functions based on the will of the people. In the exercise of fairness and justice, this pending issue must be resolved at once so that Koko Pimentel, the rightful winner, could assume his post and serve the people of the Philippines in his capacity as senator-elect.
