Nacionalista Party senatorial candidate Susan “Toots” Ople on Wednesday conceded defeat two days after the nation conducted its first automated national elections.
At the same time, Ople commended the apparent winners in the senatorial race and called on the incoming administration to prioritize the needs and concerns of Filipino workers here and abroad.
