2022 senatorial candidates concede

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — A few 2022 senatorial candidates concede defeat. They expressed their acceptance of defeat in the senatorial race based on the election results with diverse messages to their supporters. 

Antonio Trillanes IV

Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has conceded defeat in the Senate run for 2022 but says that “democracy is alive in the country as people choose their preferred leader.”

“Hindi man pabor sa amin ang resulta, pero ramdam namin na buhay na buhay ang diwa ng Demokrasya sa ating bansa. Pinili ng mga Pilipino ang mga gusto nilang maging leader ng ating bansa,” he said. 

(Although the outcome is not in our favor, we believe that the spirit of democracy is alive and well in our country. Filipinos have selected the leaders they want to govern our country.)



Trillanes is ranked 21st among the senatorial in the Commission on Elections’ partial and unofficial tally. 

Leila de Lima

De Lima conceded defeat in the 2022 senate elections on Tuesday but claimed she has no regrets.

Senator Leila de Lima has accepted that she will not be returning to the Senate.

“Mahirap pong maghanap ng mga sasabihin sa ganitong mga pagkakataon. Mahirap isulat. Mahirap tapusin. Dahil kahit anong pilit kong intindihin ang balitang natanggap ko mula sa aking detention quarters kaninang umaga, napakabigat pa rin sa dibdib na tanggapin,” de Lima said.




(On such occasions, it’s difficult to come up with something to say. It’s hard to write. Hard to finish. Because no matter how hard I tried to comprehend the news from my detention quarters this morning, it weighed too heavily on my chest to accept.)

“Pero kailangan nating umusad at magpatuloy. Dahil walang mangyayari kung magmumukmok lang at iiwan ang nasimulan. Paunti-unti, kailangang mag-ipon ng lakas para makabangon mula sa panghihina at pagkadismaya, at buhatin ang sarili mula sa bigat na nadarama,” she added.

(However, we must continue and go forward. Because if we just sulk around and abandon what we’ve started, nothing will happen. We must slowly regain our power in order to heal and rise again.)

De Lima was ranked 23rd in the fight for the so-called Magic 12 based on partial and unofficial canvassing data released on Wednesday, which included 98.35% of election returns transmitted.

Richard Gordon
