Senatorial aspirant Neri Colmenares posted on Tuesday that he will “never concede” and will continue to fight against a “rotten electoral exercise.”
Based on 95.47 percent of partial and unofficial election returns as of 9:22 p.m., Colmenares is in 24th spot in the Senate race with 4,578,927 votes
He stated in a tweet, “I will never concede defeat to a rotten electoral exercise that has basically deceived, bribed, intimidated and manipulated our people into electing the worst kinds of leaders imaginable. Tuloy ang laban! #LabanPinas,”
The former Bayan Muna representative and several other party list groups, got hit by fake news about the made-up cancellation of his candidacy on Election Day.
The Commission on Elections, however, stated it has no responsibility over the incident.
