Fast poll results transmission is “surprising,” according to an analyst.

MANILA – On Tuesday, a political analyst expressed surprise at the speed with which the results for the 2022 elections were released, compared to past polls, but cautioned that it may be premature to draw conclusions.

“Nagulat ako doon sa mabilis ang labas ng mga resulta kasi sa mga naunang mga eleksyon na automated inaabot ka ng ilang oras talaga, hanggang umaga ‘yan na naglalabasan yung mga posisyon,” political analyst Ramon Casiple said in a P

The Commission on Elections (Comelec) began announcing election results transmissions as early as 8 p.m. on May 9. It ascribed the faster results transmission to improved planning and facility improvements.

According to Casiple, this is why certain sectors couldn’t help but express concerns about the rapid dissemination of election results.

“However, ganito talaga ang sitwasyon kapag unexpected yung results ay nagkakaroon ng mga diskusyon (However, this is the usual scenario when unexpected results occur),” he added.

He underlined the need of remaining vigilant during election results reporting, stressing that the successful presidential candidate will lead the country for the next six years.

“Anim na taon yung president. Makigat yung electorate.” If you want to be president for six years, you should vote. If we make a mistake, the country will be in great problems),” he warned.

He did say, however, that making remarks before the final and official election results are revealed and a new president is proclaimed is prudent.

“Bantayan pa natin ang nangyayari kasi tantya ko hindi pa tapos,” says the narrator. (Let us remain attentive about what happens because I believe it is not yet over.) Let’s see if the shock of losing candidates wears off),” he continued.

With 31,041,871 votes, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. continues to lead the presidential election, followed by Vice President Leni Robredo with 14,793,286 votes.

The failure of nearly 2,000 vote counting machines (VCMs) across the country overshadowed the May 9 elections, causing the Comelec to decide against using them in future elections.

The VCMs, which were purchased from Smartmatic Corp., an automated elections supplier, has been in use since the 2013 midterm elections.
