Press Release
August 4, 2011


After the resignation of Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri and the withdrawal of his counter-protest, the Senate Electoral Tribunal (SET) will issue a resolution approving said withdrawal. Since there would no longer be any counter-protest, the protest of Mr. Pimentel would be upheld. After this resolution, it will go to the Comelec, which will proclaim Mr. Pimentel as the winner.

This process may take about two weeks, that's an educated guess. But I will not sign that resolution because I am no longer a member of the SET. My term just finished toward the end of July.

We are sad to see Senator Zubiri go. He is a diligent and hardworking legislator. But the Senate will accept the outcome of all this.
