There is no abnormality in presidential vote ratios, according to statisticians.

MANILA – On Wednesday, statisticians from the University of the Philippines (UP) identified no abnormalities in the consistent voting trend in the partial and unofficial presidential election results for 2022.

According to the University of the Philippines School of Statistics, the alleged “68:32” vote ratio in favor of presidential candidate and former senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. could not be used as proof of electoral fraud.

“If there is no apparent context, such vote patterns cannot be deemed evidence of cheating,” it added in a Facebook post.

After a quick count of an incomplete and unofficial total of votes showed Marcos had a large advantage over his nearest competitor, Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo, allegations of election fraud surfaced.

There have been reports regarding the claimed “68:32 magic,” which refers to a constant pattern of Marcos receiving 68 percent of the vote and Robredo receiving 32 percent.

According to the UP School of Statistics, the consistent pattern in the unofficial presidential election outcome is not suggestive of vote tampering.

“Hindi masasabi ng’68:32 ratio’ trend kung mayroong pandaraya sa eleksyon,” it stated. “Ang mga trend sa transmission ng boto tulad ng ’68:32 ratio’ ay hindi ebidensya ng pandaraya sa eleksyon”

The university’s statisticians said that it is “wrong” to assume that the votes were rigged just because Marcos has a large lead in the presidential race.

“Ang hindi paggalaw ng ’68:32 ratio’ ay hindi maituturing na irregularity sa cumulative totals. (The steady ’68:32′ ratio based on cumulative totals is not irregular.) The analysis of the total number of votes cast in each update is incorrect), “it claimed.

According to the results of the partial and unofficial tally revealed by poll watchdog Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting at 7:17 p.m. Wednesday, Marcos received 31,091,373 votes (PPCRV).

With 14,815,251 votes, Robredo came in second.

Myla Villanueva, national chairwoman of the PPCRV, stated there have been no abnormalities in the partial and unofficial vote count thus far.

The Commission on Elections also stated that allegations of presidential election fraud are “difficult to verify.”
