Trillanes receives certificate of proclamation from Comelec
MANILA, Philippines — Reelected Senator Antonio Trillanes IV formally received his certificate of proclamation Monday before the Commission on Elections (Comelec) en banc, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers (NBOC).
Trillanes was previously unable to receive his certificate during the proclamation last Friday because he was out of town.
When asked whether he felt the proclamation was too fast, he said that he went out of town on vacation because he did not expect the proclamation to happen so fast.
“I was unable to take a flight back in time for the proclamation,” Trillanes told reporters in an ambush interview.
Trillanes is ranked ninth out of the out of the 12 winning senators.
