Through a tweet, Ejercito has expressed his feelings about the election results.
“I do not feel any bitterness or even be depressed about the possibility of not making the Top 12 its because of the outpouring of support from the public has been overwhelming,” Ejercito said.
“Deep inside I know I won. But it has never been my nature not to be an obstructionist,” he added.
In an interview on CNN Philippines’ The Source, Ejercito said that he is not conceding just yet.
“The reason why I do not want to concede is because I owe it also to the people who worked very hard for me,” Ejercito said.
