Comelec Speaks on Proclamation of Winners of Senatorial, Party-List Elections
COMELEC – The Commission on Elections set the proclamation of the winning senators and party-lists in the May 2022 Elections.
The Commission on Elections is currently in the process of canvassing the votes during the May 2022 Elections held last May 9. Both local and national elections took place and it was an automated poll. Millions of Filipinos were out last May 9 to vote for the candidates they support.
Ten candidates vied for the presidency, nine for the vice-presidency, and 63 for a seat in the Senate. There was also an election of party lists in the national poll.
Under the local elections, polls for councilor, vice mayor, mayor, governor, and district representatives were held. Shortly after most of the voting precincts closed during the election day, local elections had their result while partial and unofficial results for the national elections were posted.
Previously, the Commission on Elections expressed that they await the COCs from other countries as they expect to proclaim the winners of the senatorial and party-list elections this week. Some areas in China are currently under lockdown due to COVID-19.
Meanwhile, Comelec recently gave an update confirming that they are set to proclaim the winning senators this Wednesday and the winning party lists this Thursday. While they have yet to be proclaimed, acting spokesperson John Rex Laudiangco suggests the candidates to wait until they are officially proclaimed before they will celebrate.
Laudiangco stressed that only a little time is needed and the winners will be proclaimed. According to the poll body, the senatorial winners will not be in the ranks and not all 63 winning party-lists will be proclaimed because they still await the special elections set this May 24. The rankings of the winning senators and party-lists may change when the votes from Lanao del Sur are counted.
