Scheduled partial proclamation of party-list winners on May 19 postponed

The National Board of Canvassers (NBOC) will not push through with the scheduled partial proclamation of winning party-list groups on Thursday, May 19, Commission on Elections spokesman Rex Laudiangco said on Tuesday, May 17.

The supervisory group, in its recommendation, told the NBOC that the election results from Lanao del Sur that have yet to be included in the official tally may still affect the outcome of the party-list race.

The NBOC is targeting to count the certificate of canvass from Lanao del Sur after special elections are held in precincts there on May 24.

The Commission on Elections (Comelec), sitting as the National Board of Canvassers (NBOC), approved the recommendation of its supervisory group to proclaim the 12 winning senatorial candidates at 4 pm on Wednesday, May 18.

The supervisory group told the NBOC that the remaining certificate of canvass from Lanao del Sur, which has yet to be tallied due to failure of elections in some precincts there, will not affect the outcome of the senatorial race.

  1. Robin Padilla
  2. Loren Legarda
  3. Raffy Tulfo
  4. Sherwin Gatchalian
  5. Chiz Escudero

Canvassing of votes for senatorial, party-list races almost complete

The Commission on Elections, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers (NBOC), officially tallied 172 out of 173 certificates of canvass (COCs) by the end of Monday, May 16.

The only COC that has yet to be canvassed is from Lanao del Sur, where some precincts are set to hold a special election on May 24, after failure of elections was earlier declared in some towns.

The NBOC halted the session at 5:50 pm on Monday, and will resume proceedings at 11 am on Tuesday, May 17.

Partial proclamation of winning party-list groups scheduled for May 19

The National Board of Canvassers will proclaim some of the winning party-list groups on Thursday, May 19, at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City.

“Not all 63 seats will be proclaimed on Thursday. It will only be limited to those who are sure to have garnered the guaranteed seats,” Comelec spokesman Rex Laudiangco said.

Determining which groups belong to the top 63 seats is rather complicated, as the NBOC follows a computation decided by the Supreme Court in 2009.

Winning party-list groups are allowed to have two representatives each at the proclamation venue.

The National Board of Canvassers (NBOC) will proclaim the 12 winning senatorial candidates at 4 pm on Wednesday, May 18, at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City.

The winners will be proclaimed in alphabetical order, not based on their ranking, as the NBOC is still waiting for the complete electronic transmission of election returns from Lanao del Sur, where one town is set to hold a special election on May 24.

“The oversight committee, together with the supervisory committee as well as the other working committees, already made the computation that these remaining votes yet to be transmitted will not affect the Magic 12. The standing might be affected, but not the winning senators,” Comelec spokesman Rex Laudiangco said. 

Each winning senatorial candidate is allowed to bring five companions to the proclamation ceremonies. The cap is placed to ensure compliance with health protocols.

Where we are so far

It’s the eighth day since the Commission on Elections convened as the National Board of Canvassers (NBOC). At the end of Day 7, 159 out of 173 certificates of canvass have been tallied for the senatorial and party-list races.

Today, the NBOC will formally count the votes from six overseas posts (Mexico, Prague, Abuja, Tehran, Nairobi, Hong Kong), and the 63 barangays from the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
