So far, so good…

Partial Unofficial Tally as of May 12, 2010 FROM GMA News Website 7:57 am – 88.55% of ERs

(Click to see Dashboard)

Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino (LP) is leading the presidential race with 13.5M votes, while Jejomar Binay (PMP) and Manuel Roxas (LP) are almost head to head in the vice presidential race. Presidential hopefuls Manuel Villar, Gilberto Teodoro Jr., Richard Gordon, and John Carlos delos Reyes have already conceded the race to Aquino.

A lot of people have been asking what the word concede means. Lifted from http://www.merriam-webster.com, concede is a transitive verb meaning to grant as a right or privilege, to accept as true, valid, or accurate, to acknowledge grudgingly or hesitantly.

In short, all presidential candidates except for Erap Estrada who is second with 8.6M votes (as of 7:57am), have admitted defeat and showed support to Aquino.

Oh Bless our country. Tomorrow will be the day when change will happen…

Hoping for the best.

Got Inked!


Biography from Wikipilipinas

Benigno Simeón Cojuangco Aquino III (born February 8, 1960) is the son of Benigno Aquino Jr., a former senator and Marcos critic and Corazon Aquino, a former Philippine president. A current Senator to the 4th Congress of the Philippines, he served as former Representative of the 2nd District of the province of Tarlac to the 11th, 12th, and 13th Congress of the Philippines (1998-2007).

Noynoy, as he is fondly called, was born in Manila to a clan of politicians. He is the only son of Benigno Aquino Jr. and former President Corazon C. Aquino. He has four other siblings, Kristina Bernadette, Maria Elena, Aurora Corazon and Victoria Eliza.

He completed his elementary, secondary, and college education at the Ateneo de Manila University where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Economics in 1981. After graduation, Noynoy became a member of the Philippine Business for Social Progress in 1983. He also worked humbly as a retail sales supervisor for Nike Shoes and as an assistant for advertising and promotion for Mondragon Philippines, both in 1985 to 1986. He also was the vice president and treasurer for Best Security Agency Corporation from 1986 to 1993 and served as executive assistant for administration (1993-1996) and fields service manager (1996-1998) for Central Azucarera Tarlac.

* He is also known to have no track record in corruption, as well as limited accomplishments in the political arena when he was in Congress & in Senate. Trying to live the legacy of his father & mother, he is now striving for transformational  change as seen in his platform.
