MANILA (3rd UPDATE)—Administration-backed candidates kept their lead in the Senate race, partial results from Monday's midterm elections showed.

Candidates from administration party PDP-Laban and regional party Hugpong ng Pagbabago had 9 bets in the top 12, while the opposition Otso Diretso came up empty, based on 92.76 percent of election returns of clustered precincts as of 4:50 a.m. Tuesday.

Philippine midterm elections deliver a resounding vote of confidence for Duterte
By Regine Cabato May 14 at 6:31 AM

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/philippine-midterm-elections-deliver-a-resounding-vote-of-confidence-for-duterte/2019/05/14/9286d7a6-75fd-11e9-ac17-284a66782c41_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.5500a503b6e3

< Edited >

Early unofficial results showed a landslide defeat for the opposition. Liberal candidates who ran on platforms of justice and inclusion lost to former police chief Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, who oversaw the drug war, and Imee Marcos, the daughter of deposed president Ferdinand Marcos. The two were among the senatorial candidates who received the most votes, and they will almost certainly be among 12 senators elected Monday.

< Edited >

Another poll-topper is Bong Go, a former special assistant to the president who rose to viral fame as a meme after his selfies with world leaders.

< Edited >

The early results trickled out after a roughly seven-hour lag in tallying the votes by the Philippine Commission on Elections. While the elections were generally perceived to have proceeded without major issue, there were reports of vote-buying, faulty counting machines and at least 20 cases of election-related violence.

Opposition bets fail to get in Magic 12
Based on partial, unofficial results as of 5:45 am on Tuesday, May 14, with 98.87% of precincts reporting, outgoing Senator Bam Aquino of Otso Diretso ranks just outside the winners' circle at 14th place

MANILA, Philippines (Updated) – Not a single opposition candidate is becoming a senator, after the 12 spots in the Senate were dominated by President Rodrigo Duterte's allies.

< Edited >

None of the opposition candidates of the Liberal Party-led Otso Diretso ticket made it to the Magic 12, including its two veteran bets who have breached the winners' circle in preelection surveys – reelectionist Senator Bam Aquino and former interior chief Mar Roxas.

It's extra tough for Roxas, who has to experience his third straight electoral loss on his 62nd birthday.

Estrada 'at a loss' after crushing defeat in Manila, San Juan
Posted at May 14 2019 01:38 PM

For the first time in nearly half a century, the Estradas lost control of San Juan, with the family patriarch also beaten for the mayoralty in Manila, signaling what could be the end of one of the Philippines’ most powerful political dynasties.

The former president, who expanded his dynasty from Manila to San Juan, ended up losing both.

End of an era for Estrada-Ejercito political clan?
Posted at May 14 2019 05:28 AM

The clan's patriarch, former president Joseph "Erap" Estrada, has failed in his bid for a last term as Manila City mayor.

He was defeated by former Manila City vice mayor Isko Moreno by a wide margin, based on the latest unofficial tally by the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

< snipped >

Along Erap's downfall, came the failed bids of granddaughter Janella Ejercito Estrada in San Juan City's mayorship and nephew ER Ejercito in Laguna's gubernatorial post.

Janella, daughter of senatorial candidate Jinggoy Estrada, was defeated by Francis Zamora, whose family used to be allied with the Estrada-Ejercito clan.

All candidates allied with Pantaleon Alvarez, who was ousted as House speaker reportedly at the instigation of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, swept  the local polls in the province.

Leyte mayor-elect won by only 1 vote
Updated May 15, 2019 3:29:19 PM

Veloso of the United Nationalist Alliance won the mayoralty race with 8,829 votes against outgoing Mayor Susan Ang's 8,828 votes. Ang is with the ruling PDP-Laban party.

Veloso, a two-term municipal councilor, is the nephew of Leyte 3rd District Representative Ching Veloso, who won a reelection.

They are part of the Veloso-Cari-Loreto-Petilla political clan which has ruled Leyte for nearly a century with a history that dates back to the American colonial period.

No Duterte signature fist bump for Poe, Binay during group photo
May 22, 2019 - 3:10pm

Manila, Philippines — Incumbent and returning Sens. Grace Poe and Nancy Binay on Wednesday dared to be different during the group photo with fellow winning senatorial bets after the proclamation.

Poe and Binay, who ran independently for the 2019 midterm elections, did not follow the ten other senators-elect who gestured President Rodrigo Duterte’s signature fist bump.

Would've been hypocritical of them to do so given that they are not politically aligned.

The election is over folks. Time to get back to work and leave the minutiae behind :-)

https://www.msn.com/en-ph/news/national/mar-tops-senate-campaign-spending-with-p179-m/ar-AACPJfv?ocid=ob-fb-enph-370

MANILA, Philippines — Liberal Party senatorial candidate Mar Roxas was possibly the biggest spender among those who ran in the May 2019 senatorial race.

Based on the Statement of Contribution and Expenditures (SOCE) he submitted to the Commission on Elections (Comelec), Roxas spent a total of P179,193,153.04.

Roxas declared that he shelled out P12 million of his personal funds and received a total of P167,050,000 in contributions for his campaign.

Reelected Sen. Cynthia Villar spent the most out of her own pocket – P135,529,061.69 – for her campaign in the May 13 midterm elections, making her the biggest spender of her own money.

President Duterte’s former personal aide Christopher Go spent the biggest campaign fund of P161,418,299.31 that mostly came from contributions of supporters.
