MANILA, Philippines – The administration ticket leads the official canvassing of votes as of Wednesday morning, May 15, after the national board of canvassers (NBOC) finalized the tally for over 1.7 million voters.

The surprise front runner, Grace Poe, makes the NBOC count consistent with the partial, unofficial results obtained through the Rappler Mirror Server so far. The NBOC canvassed 850,011 votes for Poe as of 11:03 am on Wednesday. (Check the results from the Rappler Mirror Server through this link.)

Based on the official count, 9 members of Team PNoy, including Poe, have made it to the winning ticket.

Below is the official tally, so far, for the Magic 12:

  • POE, Grace – 850,911

  • LEGARDA, Loren – 835,114

  • ESCUDERO, Chiz – 768,547

  • CAYETANO, Alan Peter – 764,740

  • BINAY, Nancy – 750,816

  • ANGARA, Edgardo – 698,784

  • PIMENTEL, Koko – 658,102

  • AQUINO, Benigno Bam – 649,222

  • TRILLANES, Antonio IV – 631,426

  • EJERCITO ESTRADA, JV – 620,151

  • VILLAR, Cynthia Hanepbuhay – 613,611

  • HONASAN, Gringo – 600,326

The NBOC has canvassed 14 out of 301 COCs so far. That's only 4.7% of the total, with poll chief Sixto Brillantes Jr saying it is unlikely that the NBOC can proclaim all 12 senators on Wednesday.

Official vs unofficial results

Only the NBOC can finalize the tallies for senatorial and party-list positions.

In a press conference on Monday night, May 13, Brillantes explained that election results published through two of 3 servers – the Comelec central server and the transparency server – remain unofficial. Initial results published by media groups, including Rappler, come from the transparency mirror server. (Watch more in the video below.)

“The official one goes into a ladderized system,” he said.

Comelec spokesman James Jimenez earlier said the public should wait for, and refer to, the official count to determine the 12 new members of the Philippine Senate. – Rappler.com
