- The Commission on Elections (Comelec) released the partial and official results of Senate race
- Bam Aquino is part of the “magic 12” as of 9 p.m today
- Meanwhile, Bong Revilla is currently at the 14th spot
“Otso Diretso” Senatorial bet Bam Aquino is at the 12th spot now in the partial and official results released by the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
KAMI learned that the initial ranking was identified after the said constitutional commission transmitted the official results from the 34th certificate of canvass (COC).
There are 167 COCs to be transmitted in total and as of 9 p.m. today, Bam is the lone opposition candidate who made it to the Top 12.
This result is evidently lower and different from what is shown in the unofficial count of the transparency server and many media outlets since only 34 COCs are just tallied.
In the partial, official tally, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. is not part of the “Magic 12,” as he is at the 14th place as of the moment.
Meanwhile, there were no recorded changes in the top spots where Cynthia Villar, Grace Poe, and Bong Go are currently situated.
KAMI will be giving an update once all the 167 COCs are transmitted already and if the official results match the unofficial results being shown in several sites.
Here are the partial and official results from Comelec, as reported by Inquirer.net:
1. Cynthia Villar: 4,092,454
2. Grace Poe: 3,650,288
3. Christopher “Bong” Go: 3,293, 341
4. Pia Cayetano: 3,251,819
5. Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa: 3,128,061
6. Sonny Angara: 3,022,955
7. Imee Marcos: 2,850,643
8. Francis Tolentino: 2,584,833
9. Lito Lapid: 2,520,316
10. Aquilino Pimentel III: 2,439,571
11. Nancy Binay: 2,366,035
12. Bam Aquino: 2,335,724
13. JV Ejercito: 2,292,264
14. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.: 1,997,438
In a previous article by KAMI, some “Otso Diretso” candidates already conceded their defeat in the 2019 polls.
Bam Aquino is an incumbent Senator in the Philippines who is also the cousin of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III. He is the author of “Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act.”
