With actor Robin Padilla entrenched at the top spot, the winning candidates in the May 9 polls are expected to be proclaimed by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).

But the winning party-list groups will have to wait longer after the Comelec en banc decided to postpone their proclamation until after May 24 when the special elections in Lanao del Sur would have been finished.

The Parish Pastoral Council on Responsible Voting (PPCRV) continued to find a great majority of encoded election returns matching with transmitted copies, with the latest figures showing 53,644 found to be consistent with 54,412 copies.

A Cebu Pacific pilot has found himself in hot water after his social media post about Vice President Leni Robredo asking for priority landing in a flight he commanded was branded as a malicious fabrication by the Robredo camp.

These are among the top stories this Wednesday morning, May 18, 2022.
