MANILA, Philippines — The Commission on Elections on Saturday said the proclamation of winners in the senatorial and part-list races won’t happen on Sunday as previously announced.

“Di po tuloy ‘yong bukas na ni-announce kahapon. We are not ready to proclaim yet. So the schedule will be announced,” Comelec said in a press conference.

There have been calls for the suspension of proclamation for national candidates amid allegations of electoral fraud and irregularities that put into question the credibility of the May 13 polls.

On Friday, Comelec already tabulated 147 out of 167 certificates of canvass.

The Commission on Elections is set to proclaim the winning senators and party-lists today. 

The proclamation comes nine days after the 2019 midterm polls. The National Board of Canvassers ended the canvass late Tuesday.

With only two certificates of canvass left for the National Board of Canvassers to tally, the board suspends its session on Monday and will resume canvassing on Tuesday morning.

Comelec said the COCs from the Philippine embassies in Saudi Arabia and in Washington account for 555,092 votes.

The board has canvassed 165 of 167 COCs and the Comelec expects to hold proclamations of winning candidates on Tuesday.

Canvassing resumes Monday night.

 

The Commission on Elections said earlier Monday that the proclamation of winners in the senatorial and party-list elections will likely happen on Tuesday. 

Party-list proclamations will be in the morning while the country's 12 new senators-elect will be proclaimed in the evening.

May 19, 2019 - 3:22pm

Commission on Elections Director Frances Arabe of the commission's Education and Information Department tells reporters that proclamation of winners can be done "early next week" but cannot say for certain if it will be done in one go.

The Comelec has conducted partial proclamations in past elections.
