MANILA, Philippines (Update) – Incumbent and re-electionist senators were dominating the senatorial elections with only two or three new faces likely to make it in the top 12 winning senators, based on the Commission on Elections’ (Comelec) partial tally released on Monday evening.

Similar to the pre-election senatorial survey results of Pulse Asia and Social Weather Stations, the Comelec’s partial tally had incumbents Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. of Lakas-Kampi and Jinggoy Estrada as the top 2 senators in the 2010 senatorial elections.

The list, announced by Comelec chair Jose Melo, was based on the partial and unofficial tally of 57% of votes cast in 76,300 polling precincts nationwide.
