1. Franklin Drilon (18,607,391 votes)
2. Joel Villanueva (18,459,222 votes)
3. Vicente Sotto III (17,200,371 votes)
4. Panfilo Lacson (16,926,152 votes)
5. Richard Gordon (16719, 322 votes)
6. Juan Miguel Zubiri (16,119,165 votes)
7. Manny Pacquiao (16,050,546 votes)
8. Francis Pangilinan ( 15,955,949 votes)
9. Risa Hontiveros (15,915,213 votes)
10. Sherwin Gatchalian (14,953,768 votes)
11. Ralph Recto (14,271,868 votes)
12. Leila de Lima ( 14,144,070 votes)

Independent candidate Francis Tolentino, who is currently on the 13th place of the race, earlier asked the Supreme Court to prevent Comelec from proclaiming the winners in the 10th to 12th senatorial slots. However, the poll body proceeded with the proclamation since the difference between the number of votes amassed by the 12th and 13th senatorial candidates is 1,332,972. The Comelec is yet to receive 1,211 votes.

Tolentino believes that the results of the elections were affected after Smartmatic made some changes on the script of the transparency server of the poll body on election day.

In allocating party-list seats, the Comelec based the formula prescribed in the Banat case in which “All party-list organizations that garnered 2 percent of the total number of votes cast for the party-list system are guaranteed one seat each. Additional seats are then allocated proportionally.”

The party lists winners for the 2016 National Elections are as follows:

1. Ako Bicol ( 3 seats)

3. 1Pacman (2 seats)
4. Act Teachers (2 seats)
