Senatorial candidate, and the Bayan Muna party-list representative, Neri Colmenares strongly rebukes the results of the midterm elections as he refused to concede defeat.

In a Twitter post on Tuesday night, Colmenares said the “worst kind of leaders” won the “rotten” midterm polls, as he described it.

“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 tweeted

“Tuloy ang laban! #LabanPinas,” he added

Colmenares was placed at the 24th spot in the partial, unofficial tally of the Commission on Elections as of past midnight Wednesday, garnering 4,588,758 votes so far.

He also condemned the false information relayed to voters on Election Day that he had been disqualified from the race.

In a video released on May 13, Colmenares warned his political opponents to stop black propaganda, accusing him of ties with communists’ rebels of the New People's Army.

"Don't load the dice against us anymore. The playing field has been very unequal, and our resources [have been depleted]. We're hoping that the Comelec takes action. This harassment should not continue," Colmenares said, as reported by Philstar
