STAFF 10:31 AM


Maria Leonor "Leni" Robredo, Vice Presidential front runner reached 14 million in votes in unofficial counts as of Sunday morning, maintaining a margin of 200,000 votes from Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr.

 "Malinaw na po, hindi na kakayaning habulin pa ni Senator Marcos ang lamang ni congresswoman Robredo at hinding-hindi po nagsisinungaling ang mga numero," Boyet Dy, Robredo's head for policy, told supporters and members of the media at the gathering.  "Kahit ibigay pa natin ang lahat ng natitirang boto kay Senator Marcos, batay sa tala na official Comelec mismo ang naglalathala, kabilang na ang [Overseas Absentee Voters] at [Local Absentee Voters], lamang pa rin si congresswoman Leni Robredo ng 24, 341."He said as of 2 p.m. yesterday, the Commission on Elections (Comelec) has accounted for 99.51 percent of Certificates of Canvass.

According to Dy, only nine towns have yet to transmit their COCs namely Rizal, Laguna; Allen, Northern Samar; Catarman, Northern Samar; Lope de Vega, Northern Samar; Binidayan, Lanao del Sur; Masiu, Lanao del Sur; Tamparan, Lanao del Sur; Indanan, Sulu; and Bacungan, Zamboanga del Norte, with a total of 168,988 registered voters.

“Based on the latest Comelec count including the overseas absentee voting and local absentee voting, congresswoman Leni is leading by 257,567,” Dy said.

“It is clear that Senator Marcos can no longer overtake congresswoman Robredo even if he gets all the remaining votes,” he added.

“For now, based on the latest result no one can stop Leni Robredo. She is the next vice president of the country.”
