Manila, Philippines – Grace Poe continues to lead the 2013 elections results for the senatorial race, based on the latest partial and unofficial count from the Commission on Elections (COMELEC). Poe, 44, is FPJ‘s daughter and former chairperson of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).
According to the record at COMELEC‘s official website 2013electionresults.COMELEC.gov.ph this Monday night, Grace Poe has 9,891,318 votes, with 6.86% of all the votes. This represents 43.57% of the Senator Election Returns, or 34,057 of the 78,166 Election Returns, as of 9:50 p.m. (local time).
Re-electionist Senator Loren Legarda still landed on the second spot, just like in the initial and unofficial COMELEC count released minutes after 7 p.m., when the election officially ended. However, Bam Aquino, who earlier landed as third, is now on the 7th spot, and Chiz Escudero replaced him on the 3rd slot.
Alan Cayetano is now on the fourth, while Nancy Binay is on the fifth spot. Edgardo “Sonny” Angara went down the sixth place from the fifth place earlier, followed by Koko Pimentel, Antonio Trillanes, JV Ejercito Estrada, Cynthia Villar, and Gringo Honasan to complete the Top 12 Senatorial candidates.
As reported earlier, the National Board of Canvassers (NBOC), composed of COMELEC chairman Sixto Brillantes Jr. and its six members suspended the national canvassing of votes set this evening, and will resume at 10 in the morning, tomorrow, Tuesday, May 14. The unofficial counting will continue, though.
Later, the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) admitted the wrong counting of its partial and unofficial count of the senatorial race. PPCRV Communications Head Anna de Villa Singson told reporters that the error was due to double counting of the results. The agency apologized for the incident, but noted that the format has already been corrected.
