The Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Thursday released the official ranking of the 12 newly elected senators of the country with Grace Poe-Llamanzares on top of the list.
The commission en banc, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers (NBOC), issued the resolution despite still having uncanvassed votes.
“While there are still remaining uncanvassed votes, the same will no longer affect the ranking of the winning candidates for Senator of the Republic of the Philippines,” the NBOC Resolution 0010-13 that was promulgated Wednesday stated.
Poe-Llamanzares garnered 20,337,327 votes followed by re-electionist Sen. Loren Legarda with 18,661,196 votes. Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano acquired 17,580,813; Francis Escudero, 17,502,358.
