Sotto concedes that Lacson intends to continue ahead with his objectives.
MANILA, Philippines — Senator Panfilo Lacson and his running mate, Senate President Vicente Sotto III, said on Tuesday that they had accepted the election results and will continue with their other plans.
“Godspeed to our new President and Vice President,” Sotto said.
Lacson expressed his desire to spend more time with his family in a tweet.
“I’m returning home.” It’s time to serve my family again after spending too much time tending to the needs of others. In these trying times, finding calm and quiet will probably be my greatest reward,” Lacson wrote in his post.

In partial and unofficial tallies of roughly 97 percent of polling locations, Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Sara Duterte are far ahead.
Marcos currently has 30.9 million votes over Vice President Leni Robredo’s 14.7 million as of 1 p.m.

Duterte currently leads Senator Francis Pangilinan (9.1 million) and Sotto with 31.4 million votes (8.1 million).
With 91,700 votes, Labor leader Leody de Guzman is presently ranked eighth among the ten contenders.
“Hindi ko na ilalaban ‘yung malayong boto ko at hindi ko na ilalaban ‘yan para makaabot pa ako,” he remarked in an interview with a news channel. “But ako naman ay naniniwala na mayroong dapat ipaliwanag ‘yung Comelec (Commission on
