MANILA, Philippines — The National Board of Canvassers (NBOC) resumed its session on Monday at 8:13 p.m. with just five certificates of canvass (COC) remaining to be transmitted before before the final count.

Earlier, the NBOC convened at around 1:45 p.m., but it quickly suspended the session after no new transmissions were received.


Comelec was waiting for COCs coming from Isabela province here and those from overseas absentee voting (OAV) centers in Japan, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Washington D.C. in the United States.

Results from OAV were delayed due to issues about corrupted SD cards. According to Comelec Director Frances Arabe, they had to ship replacement cards from their warehouse to the affected areas.


Meanwhile, the COC from Isabela was delayed because two vote counting machines and other election paraphernalia in Jones town were burned by armed men.

The Barangay Dicamay Uno in Jones recently conducted its special elections and is expected to transmit its results soon.

If Comelec could finish tallying all votes on Monday, then winners of the party-list and senatorial race may be proclaimed on Tuesday, May 21.
