Former Senator Jinggoy Estrada has accepted his defeat in the Senatorial race. KAMI learned that Estrada has shown his support to his party-mates that made it to the top 12.
Through a lengthy Facebook post, Estrada shared his sentiments about the election results.
“Sa lahat po ng mga bumoto, nagdasal at sumuporta po sa akin, taos puso po akong nagpapasalamat sa inyong lahat,” Estrada said.
“Bagamat hindi po tayo pinalad na makapasok sa magic 12, ayon sa unofficial count ng Comelec at mga VCM’s, tatanawin ko pa rin ng malaking utang na loob sa inyo ang inyong ipinakitang suporta sa akin lalong lalo na ang masang pilipino na kahit kailan hindi po ako iniwanan,” he added.
Estrada was also hopeful that candidates Bong Go, Bato dela Rosa, Francis Tolentino, and Imee Marcos who are poised to be senators would fulfill their campaign promises.
He also mentioned his “bff” former Senator Bong Revilla in the post, who made it at the 10th spot in the partial and unofficial results.
“Sa aking BFF at kakosa na si Sen. Bong Revilla, bagamat matagal tayong nagkasama at ngayon lang tayo maghihiwalay,” he said.
“Ipagdadasal ko ang iyong tagumpay sa Senado at ipagpatuloy mo ang laban para sa katotohanan. I love you my friend!” Estrada said.
Based on the partial and unofficial results of the Senatorial race as of 5:29 a.m. and from 97.87 percent election returns, Estrada landed to the 15th spot with 11,267,199 votes.
Jinggoy Estrada is the son of incumbent Manila Mayor Erap Estrada. He is also the half-brother of reelectionist Senator JV Ejercito. Jinggoy’s daughter, Janella Ejercito, also trailed in the mayoral race of San Juan City.
