We will just accept the Supreme Court’s decision."

With these words, movie actress Susan Roces told her lawyer last Saturday she would no longer pursue the poll protest of her late husband Fernando Poe Jr.

Roces — Jesusa Sonora in real life — filed a 27-page final manifestation yesterday informing the Supreme Court, sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET), that she would not appeal its March 29 ruling dismissing the protest for lack of "party in interest."

The ruling junked Roces’ petition to be Poe’s substitute in his bid for a recount of ballots in last year’s presidential election, which was won by incumbent President Arroyo.

Roces expressed sadness over her virtual withdrawal from the quest to "reveal the truth" about the results of the election, but events and circumstances that preceded the PET verdict had made her decision inevitable, her lawyer Sixto Brillantes said.

[Summary] => Taas-kamay nang sumuko ang maybahay ng yumaong presidential candidate na si Fernando Poe Jr. na ipagpatuloy ang naiwang election protest ng asawa.

Sa 27-pahinang final manifestation na isinumite ni Susan Roces o Jesusa Sonora sa tunay na buhay, tinanggap na nito ang naging desisyon ng Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) kung saan hindi siya pinapayagan na maging kapalit o substitute sa protesta ng kanyang asawang si Da King.

Sinabi ni Roces sa kanyang manifestation na wala siyang interes pa na maghain ng motion for reconsideration sa ginawang pagbasura ng PET sa poll protest ni FPJ dahil sa pagkabigong magkaroon ng isang lehitimong substitute dito.

Inamin din ni Roces na wala nang saysay pa kung siya ay maghahabol ngunit ang kanyang pagtupad sa desisyon ng PET ay hindi nangangahulugan na tapos na ang isyu nang maanomalyang election noong 2004 kung saan sinasabi ng kampo ni FPJ na nagkaroon ng malawakang dayaan sanhi ng kanyang pagkatalo.

But actress Susan Roces, wife of opposition presidential hopeful and actor Fernando Poe Jr., fervently believes that her husband has won over President Arroyo.

A confident Roces visited the House of Representatives yesterday to observe the proceedings in the scheduled canvassing of votes.

"I will do it all over again," Poe told reporters yesterday when asked if it was worth it.

He cast his vote in the town of San Juan, where his close friend, former President Joseph Estrada, began his political career after life in the movies.

To us this simply means that they fully realize that the only way that they can possibly win this coming presidential election is by defeating the incumbent. She is the person all the other presidential candidates want to replace. They all want to be what she already is, President of the Republic of the Philippines. The great number of presidential candidates, for instance, will work in GMA’s favor.
