These Filipino Activists Starting Coming Out Protesting Against The Election Results
ACTIVISTS – After the 2019 Midterm Election’s partial results have been released, some Filipinos seem disappointed and started protesting.
The nationwide midterm elections have been conducted last Monday (May 13, 2019). Follow this link for live updates on the 2019 election partial and unofficial results.
Recently, many patriots have been surfacing on line and IRL asserting their opinions on what they think could be better for the country.
After noticing the partial results, some activists showed up outside of the Philippine Consulate to protest. The protest by a group of people apparently insinuating that there was a fraud going on in the elections.
This insinuation could’ve been triggered after the recent reports of malfunctioning election instruments in several precincts. Including malfunctioning VCMs, secure digital or SD cards and election marking pens.
In a Twitter post by ABS-CBN, a photo of the protesting group was featured showing them holding up written signs.
These paper signs contained the phrases: “FIght Election Fraud”, “Defend Democracy” and “Oust Duterte”.
Although the ballot counting process is still on-going, some candidates are undeniably ahead of the race. As of now, the partial unofficial update of the senatorial race shows:
- Cynthia Villar leading the senatorial race with 24,690,459 votes
- Grace Poe with 21,582,062

- Bong Revilla Jr. with 14,270,265

Following the results, the results could turn out negatively or positively depending on the supporting voter’s POV. However, if you’re favorite candidate did not make it to the list, there still time to race.
That is all there is to it, at least for now. We’ll post updates as soon as we got them.
