Claim: Robredo missing from a ballot in New Zealand
This post of an image appears to show a ballot from the Wellington New Zealand Philippine Embassy where Vice President Leni Robredo’s name is missing.
This is False.
The Philippine Embassy in New Zealand has released an official statement stating that the embassy is committed to fair elections, and is coordinating with the Comelec for verification (https://www.facebook.com/…/a.14883774…/2148228192020225/).
Philippine Ambassador to New Zealand Gary Domingo said that they are calling on the claimant to provide the ballot to the embassy (https://twitter.com/AmbaGary/status/1518151375078965248) and that the news is fake.
Meanwhile, Lawyers for Leni (https://www.facebook.com/LawyersForLeni) has stated that the post is false and is asking the public to not spread the falsity.
Why we fact-checked this: Falsity on all sides must be called out and corrected. Political decisions have to be made on factual information, regardless of whether or not it supports our leanings.
