MANILA, Philippines — A tight race looms for the last three slots in the so-called Magic 12 of the senatorial elections, as shown by the latest Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) tally on its transparency server.

In a PPCRV update on Tuesday morning, re-electionist Sen. Nancy Binay was at 10th place with 13,785,323 votes, while Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, or a total of 13,784,052, trailed her by a mere 1,271 votes.

At 12th place was former Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. with 13,729,911 votes — or 54,141 shy of Pimentel, while Sen. JV Ejercito is at the 13th spot with 13,541,625. He trailed Revilla by 188,286 votes.

Sen. Bam Aquino, meanwhile, occupied the 14th slot, with 13,431,959 votes.

Thes figures came from the second update after the Commission on Elections (Comelec) failed to transmit the tally of votes to the transparency server, mainly because of glitches.

Earlier, it was reported that Sen. Nancy Villar was leading the race, followed by Sen. Grace Poe, former special presidential assistant Christopher “Bong” Go, Taguig Rep. Pia Cayetano, former Bureau of Corrections chief Ronald dela Rosa, Sen. Sonny Angara, former Sen. Lito Lapid, Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos, and former presidential political assistant Francis Tolentino.
