    Another partial proclamation of the senatorial winners was announced by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Friday night.

    Proclaimed were Liberal Party’s Paulo Benigno “Bam” Aquino 4th, and reelectionists Sen. A­quilino “Koko” Pimentel 3rd and Sen. Antonio Trillanes 4th.

    The poll body, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers (NBoC), declared that the newly-elected senators will serve until 2019.

    However, Pimentel didn’t show up because of sickness while Trillanes was out of town.

    Based on the latest tally from 113 COCs as of 6:18 p.m., Grace Poe was still in the top spot with 17,895,281 votes. Loren Legarda had 16,468,744, Alan Peter Cayetano, 15,453,195; Francis “Chiz” Escudero, 15,438,853, Nancy Binay, 14,725,283 and Sonny Angara, 14,079,635.

    They are followed by Liberal Party’s Aquino with 13,446,762 votes; Sen. Pimentel, 12,860,609; Sen. Trillanes, 12,371,458.
