Otso Diretso supporters on Twitter suspected that the results for the 2019 senatorial elections were rigged by Commission on Elections, saying that the malfunctioning vote counting machines might be contributed to the inaccuracy of the tally.

The top #HalalanDayaan2019 became the number one trending topic on Twitter, showing the sadness of many Otso Diretso supporters who campaigned their bets via social media.

Here are some of the comments of netizens on Twitter who used the said hashtag.

“The devastating part is, there’s no assurance that all votes being counted are accurate. From the malfunction of VCMs, mismatches of ballots and receipts corrupted SD cards and delayed transparency servers. It clearly shows that something is not right. #HalalanDayaan2019” @baldozeer said.

“This is so disappointing. PINAS DI NA TALAGA TAYO NADALA. This is the downfall of my country. I can’t hold back my tears anymore. GOD SAVE MY COUNTRY #HalalanDayaan2019 #Halaan2019” @itsmepatiyok wrote.

“hey were rejected by the majority, but it’s more of rejection to change and progress. We lost brave and courageous candidates who are willing to fight for us and stand against the administration. Let’s educate others and make it happen in 2022!#HalalanDayaan2019” @_lancekeane remarked

“WE ARE NOT SORE LOSERS, WE KNOW WE WERE CHEATED ON SO PLEASE DECLARE FAILURE OF ELECTION BECAUSE THE SYSTEM IS BEING MANIPULATED BY THOSE POWERFUL PEOPLE!!#HalalanDayaan2019” @klenaii_klens posted.

Meanwhile, actress Leah Navarro also joined the netizens who questioned the credibility of the elections.

“Are those counts genuine? How does anyone know? The reason it’s called a ‘transparency server’ is clear, but it’s going offline for hours is very unclear, and suspicious. @COMELEC needs to explain why this could be #HalalanDayaan2019.” she said.

Senator Risa Hontiveros also urged COMELEC to explain about the malfunctioning VCMs.

“I am extremely alarmed and disappointed over reports that some 400 to 600 vote-counting machines were replaced in this year’s midterm elections,” she said.
