Filipino "Game of Thrones" is over!

The Filipino "Game of Thrones" is over!


With 16,601,997 votes, Rodrigo Duterte will not only become the first Mindanaoan president in history but also has the highest mandate to a president since 1981 when former President Ferdinand Marcos was "reelected" to the presidency with 18,309,360 votes over war hero Alejo Santos. Duterte’s closest rival, Mar Roxas garnered himself the second highest votes (9,978,175) by a losing presidential candidate in history after Fernando Poe Jr. (11,782,232). FPJ's daughter, Grace Poe, also featured with the fifth highest vote (9,100,991) garnered by a losing presidential candidate in history.

Here’s the final, official tally of votes for President, based on all 167 certificates of canvass (COCs), are:

Duterte - 16,601,997
Roxas - 9,978,175
Poe - 9,100,991
Binay - 5,416,140
Defensor Santiago - 1,455,532
Seneres 25,779

The 2016 election is also the fifth closest election result between the two leading vice-presidential candidates (1961, 1965, 2004, 2010 and 2016) and the third successive presidential election that the losing vice presidential candidate accused the winner of cheating. Leni Roberdo will become the country's second female vice-president after Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Here’s the final, official tally of votes for Vice-President, based on all 167 COCs, are:

Robredo - 14,418,817
Marcos - 14,155,344
Cayetano - 5,903,379
Escudero - 4,931,962
Trillanes - 868,501
Honasan - 788,881

As for the automated election? It's a work-in-progress.. the more we use the system the better that we get to improve and fix the flaws. 

President-elect Rodrigo Duterte, 16th President of the Philippines
