PPCRV resumes count after initial data error, Poe still on top

(UPDATE 2) While the Commission on Elections opted to begin canvassing on Tuesday, the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) has revealed partial, unofficial poll results.

However, after some transmissions, with over 8 million votes counted for Grace Poe, PPCRV decided to stop releasing the unofficial results due to inconsistencies.

The citizen arm’s Media and Communications Head Ana Singson says the number of votes are too high for the number of precincts that have been counted so far.

PPCRV spokesman Ana Singson says they suspect there is something wrong with the script file. They are now asking for an explanation from Smartmatic. The issue was resolved by fixing the formatting error, pushing PPCRV to resume showing unofficial, partial results.

As of 10 pm, transmitted vote data came from 23,000 out of 78,166 clustered precincts.

Initial, partial, unofficial data as of 10:00 pm showed Grace Poe on top of the initial PPCRV tally followed by Loren Legarda.
Poe 6,836,542
Legarda 6,192,096
Escudero 5,955,121
Cayetano 5,838,150
Binay 5,436,011
Angara 5,363,545
Aquino 5,086,259
Pimentel 4,943,736
Trillanes 4,781,798
Ejercito Estrada 4,597,705
Villar 4,571,607
