MANILA, Philippines — The Special Provincial Board of Canvassers for South Cotabato has begun canvassing the municipal and city certificate of canvass from the province here at the Philippine International Convention Center.


South Cotabato, which is divided into two legislative districts, has a total of 628,676 registered voters, according to figures from the Commission on Elections.


The first legislative district is composed of Polomok, Tampakan, Tupi, and General Santos City, while the second district covers Banga, Lake Sebu, Norala, Santo Nino, Surallah, Tantangan, T’boli, and Koronadal City.


South Cotabato Governor Daisy Fuentes had accused provincial Commission on Elections (Comelec) election supervisor Lilia Radam of alleged manipulation of the election results in the province.


Fuentes had revealed that Radam had a blank certificate of canvass (CoC), which was allegedly signed by the members of the Board of Canvassers (BoC) in the province.


Fuentes had claimed that Radam could no longer be contacted.


The governor said the CoC that was brought to Comelec-Manila did not coincide with the CoC coming from the province.
