Based on the Commission on Elections-GMA7 Mirror, with 95.87% of the precincts reporting, Congresswoman Leni Robredo maintained her 200, 000 votes lead against Bongbong Marcos. As of 8:55 am of Friday, May 13, Robredo has 13,992,734 votes while Marcos has 13,775,423 votes.

The vice presidential race between Senator Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. and Congresswoman Leni Robredo is tight.

According to the data the Volunteers at the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) has gathered, in which an interactive map can also be viewed  on its website, Robredo and Marcos’ votes were traced.

Marcos won in Luzon, where solid votes came from his family’s loyal supporter in the Northern provinces. He also had Metro Manila in the overall number of votes.

Robredo took Southern Luzon. That includes the Bicol region where she hails from. However, the votes she got in the southern part were not enough to surpass Marcos’ number of votes in the entire Luzon.

In Visayas, Robredo gained a lead of over 2 million votes over Marcos. She took Western and Central Visayas, including Cebu, and Negros Island Regio while Marcos took the Eastern Visayas.

Mindanao also went to Robredo. While she topped the voting results there, Marcos ranked only third on the island in number of votes.

Aside from the aforementioned, Robredo also won the voting in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao and Caraga region. Marcos was only third in Mindanao but he took the Soccsksargen region.

Meanwhile, at the height of cheating accusations by the Marcos camp, the camp of Robredo has requested earlier to respect the democratic process of the national elections and wait until the canvassing is complete.
