COMELEC Chairman Benjamin S. Abalos Sr., called Atty. Sixto Brillantes a good sport for admitting a mistake made by his ‘tabulators.’
Brillantes, who is counsel for the Genuine Opposition, called the National Board of Canvassers’ (NBC) attention to several thousand votes that were allegedly shaved off of the votes for Senatorial candidates Noynoy Aquino and Sonia Roco. Upon verification of his claim however, it was found that his tabulators had added up the wrong figures.
Brillantes called his tabulators “over-excited, over-zealous, and over-resourceful,” and offered his apologies to the NBC.
