Former Mayor Lito Atienza of Manila has sought a recounting of the votes in the city in his bid to buttress his allegations of “irregularities” in what he called “protested precincts.”

In the 13-page protest he filed before the Commission on Elections, Atienza prayed that the elections results be rechecked as the “protested precincts are not reflective of the actual votes.”

In an interview, election lawyer Romulo Macalintal told The Manila Times that “the only remedy with this failure to correctly count the votes is through manual counting.”

Macalintal also said that once they have established solid evidence of the alleged irregularities, Atienza would be filing appropriate charges against Smartmatic-Total Information Management.
