Bongbong Marcos still leads on 3rd day of unofficial, partial electronic results
MANILA, Philippines — Former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. remains the frontrunner in the 2022 presidential race based on the unofficial vote count of electronically transmitted results of poll watchdog Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV).
As of 3:57 p.m, Marcos continued to retain his spot garnering 31,086,149 votes based on the electronically transmitted results received by PPCRV from the Commission of Elections’ transparency server.
The electronically transmitted votes came from 105,944 (98.29 percent of 107,785 total) clustered precincts.
Marcos’ rival and opposition bet Vice President Leni Robredo, meanwhile, is in second place, having twice less than the current frontrunner with 14,812,792 million votes.
Still in third place is Sen. Manny Pacquiao with 3,629,448 million votes, followed by Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso at fourth with 1,897,412 million votes.
Sen. Panfilo Lacson had also yet to break the one million ceiling with 851,854 votes.
The rest of the presidential hopeful counts are listed below:
Businessman Faisal Mangondato – 257,906 votes
Former presidential spokesperson Ernie Abella – 113,214
Labor Leader Leody de Guzman – 92,045
Former Defense Sec. Norberto Gonzales – 89,068
Lawyer-Doctor Jose Montemayor – 59,931
However, it should be noted that the manual voting count of the PPCRV had not yet finished as only a small number of printed election returns had been received by the PPCRV, only 10,000 as of Tuesday night.
This means the PPCRV is still in the process of manually encoding the printed election returns from VCMs to verify if they match with the electronic results from the transparency server.
The PPCRV is set to operate until May 20 in the University of Santo Tomas’ Quadricentennial Pavilion — which serves as the PPCRV’s command center.
