Comelec: 44% precincts have transmitted results

(Updated 11:23 a.m.) Around 34,725 clustered precincts have transmitted their results as of 9:15 p.m., registering 44.2 percent of total precincts nationwide, the Commission on Elections said late Monday. Commissioner Grace Padaca said that they were "happy" with the number of the transmissions. "But as I am speaking now baka umakyat na naman siya now baka umaakyat na naman 'yan ule. But expect that at some point baka mag-slow down kasi it's the initial search," Padaca said. Also, she denied speculation that the Comelec was reporting the transmission status to quell public fears on a transmission discrepancy. "I've been tweeting kanina pa," Padaca explained. The Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting earlier reported discrepancies in their canvassing results. ( For his part, commissioner Luie Guia said the transmission to the Comelec server so far was "fast." — DVM, GMA News
