Erap, Binay lead in local absentee voting


At the continuation of the canvassing of votes for president and vice president in a joint session of Congress — the Senate and the House of Representatives – that convenes as the National Board of Canvassers (NBoC), former President Joseph Estrada and his runningmate Makati Mayor Jejomar Binay ruled the elections in the local absentee voting.

Local absentee voters include government employees, including members of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP) who were allowed to vote in areas where they were temporarily assigned to perform election duties even if they were not registered to vote.

Estrada obtained 8,770 votes, while Binay received 12,995 votes.

Lakas-Kampi-CMD presidential bet Gilbert Teodoro Jr., a former Defense Secretary, was second to Estrada with 6,199 votes, while Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino was a poor third, obtaining 2,744 votes among the local absentee voters.

In the vice presidential race, Binay was followed by Sen. Manuel Roxas II with 4,583 votes and Bayani Fernando with 821 votes.
