Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 14) — While several senatorial candidates have already accepted their defeat in the 2019 elections, Makabayan candidate Neri Colmenares said he won't concede. 

"I will never concede defeat to a rotten electoral exercise that has basically deceived, bribed, intimidated and manipulated our people into electing the worst kinds of leaders imaginable," Colmenares said on Twitter.

As of 8:22 p.m., Colmenares ranked 24th among the senatorial candidates in the unofficial, partial tally of the Commission of Elections, with 4.57 million votes.
