Aquino, who continues to lead in various partial, unofficial tallies based on election returns from the Philippines, won by landslide in votes cast through the OAV with 45,734 votes, the DFA said.

Bangon Pilipinas standard-bearer Bro. Eddie Villanueva, who consistently places fifth in various unofficial election results based on votes cast in the Philippines, was in distant second with 11, 147 votes.

PPCRV ends tally today; special polls in 9 areas slated

MANILA, Philippines – The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) winds up today its tally of election returns (ERs) with over 90 percent of votes transmitted from precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines processed and more than half manually counted.

Media communications director Ana de Villa-Singson said the PPCRV is set to shut down its command center at Pope Pius XII Catholic Center on UN Avenue in Manila and stop encoding ERs at 11 p.m. today.

PPRCV officials and staff will transfer to a smaller room where they will continue receiving data from the PCOS machines.
