MANILA, May 14 (PNA) –- The counting of the 2013 election result is moving in a slower pace compared to the first 12-hour count in 2010 polls.
As of 1:30 p.m., 67.8 percent of the first 12 hour- transmitted votes have been counted, lower compared to the 80 percent count on the 2010 elections.
Anna Singson of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) said in an interview that it will take a while before all the transmitted votes will be counted.
She also mentioned that after the first 12 hours of transmission of results in 2010, transmission also moved slowly.
It was after 1 to 2 weeks that they finished counting up to 92 percent of the transmitted results.
Even though the first 12 hours of the 2013 election count is lower than the previous election, the amount of transmission is continuous, she mentioned.
She also added that they are still waiting for un-transmitted votes and votes that were about to be transmitted.
Singson also assured the public that they will continue to relay transmissions and broadcast until the very last day. (Paula Navarra/Lily O Ramos/Media Ng Bayan)
