3:10 am
is trailing behind marcus junior. initial results show a lead, so wide pool experts believe it is unlikely. roberto can catch up. jason, you're was up and i wanna, i'm with you in the belief that the elections must respect the full voice and well of the people. my life. it is important that the people continued their belief and respect for democracy. more than 60000000 filipinos voted for the successor to president rodrigo, to 30 in one of ages, oldest democracies. oh, here in one of the biggest polling presence in manila voting day was marked with frustration. about malfunctioning boating machines. people lined up for hours and refused to leave, even as the pulls officially closed. with global mom, brittany, lamb, you're born. we want to be here. the one we want to see over by let's go through the machines and see the receipt. some of them looks big, it's like a some of them,
3:11 am

3:12 am
a victory speech, because these are unofficial results in the sense that the national board of canvasses has yet to announce the vote. but this tally does come from the commission on election. marcus junior has thank to support us in a speech that was streamed live on facebook. social media has been the way he's been running his campaign now, but that's also disappointment. there's because of people saying that they weren't able to vote because of vote counting machines breaking down on the report. say that as many as a 1800 machines malfunction or broke down. and that's only about 2 percent of the total vote. number of vote counting machines, but that still represents double the number of machines that broke down in the 2016 general election and the 2019 mid term polls. and then there was a reports of vote buying like in previous elections, although it's to, it's difficult to say just how wide spread there is. that is now a number of civil society organizations. and students in manila are calling for a protest outside the building of the commission on election to protest against what they say is electro fraud. and there are also people who still remember what
3:13 am
the, what life was like under the senior moccasins rule. and they said that this victory by mark was uni, has only been made possible because fiction has been repackaged as facts. referring to a campaign of misinformation that they say aloud to the marcus junior campaign to win . but marcus, this campaign has denied using misinformation. and then of course there's lenny robledo who's trailing behind in poles. now in the early hours of tuesday morning, she spoke to the media. she addressed the issue of voting irregularities. and but she did say that we cannot allow this issue to divide as because we love this country. and she said the thoughts of the filipino peoples of the, of the philippines, people are slowly becoming known. and florence, do we have any clearer picture at this stage? of what a bong, bong marcos presidency would look like. right, so that's difficult to answer with
3:14 am
a great degree of certainty simply because of how he's run his campaign. i'm at his campaign events. it's, is he, his beaches or even that his appearances have been very or of his features have been very limited on policy. so we don't really know and he's limited his media appearances. it's been difficult to question him. his preferred instead to rely on social media influences and on blogs to augment his message. but still there are some remarks he's made where we're able to clean what sort of administration he's going. he's likely to run. now on foreign policy, he's likely to be pro china. so like his predecessor rodrigo to 30 am in the issue of territorial dispute with china in the south china sea. he is likely to push for a multi lateral approach. and that will be in china's favor because china's already in negotiations with others, how these asian nations claimants, to the south china jar the parts of the south china sea. and that the bar and the pushing for multilateral approach, a bilateral approach would we converse. and then of course, he's also indicated that he supports due today's drugs war on drugs,
