As of writing, 70 percent of the votes cast have been counted and it’s clear that Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte will win the Presidency by a landslide. But the nation has stayed up all night as the Vice-Presidential race proves to be a nail-biter with less than .2 percent of the ballots separating Leni Robredo and Bongbong Marcos.
Voters and supporters have then taken to Twitter and various social media outlets to show their support, gathering under the hashtag #LabanLeni. This morning, the Liberal Party bet took over the lead from Bongbong who was gathering traction early on with his “Solid North” backing.
Some tweets are hopeful and serious.
Woke up to a very beautiful, and hopeful morning. #LabanLeni
COMELEC is decided on completing the count within the day and soon enough we shall see if we will have our second female vice-president after Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo or if Duterte will have Marcos with him in Malacañang.
