No irregularity in vote ratio of presidential polls: UP stat experts


There are no irregularities in the consistent voting pattern in the partial and unofficial results of the 2022 presidential race, this according to the statistics experts from the University of the Philippines (UP).

The UP School of Statistics said the supposed "68:32" vote ratio favoring presidential aspirant and former senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. could not be used as sufficient proof of electoral fraud.

"Kung walang malinaw na konteksto, ang ganitong
 pattern sa porsyento ng boto ay hindi maaaring gamiting ebidensya ng pandaraya (If there is no clear context, such vote pattern could not be considered as evidence of cheating)," it said in a Facebook post.

Allegations from the losing camp says that election cheating emerged after the quick count of partial and unofficial tally of votes showed that Marcos had a wide lead over his closest rival, Vice President Maria Leonor "Leni" Robredo.

There have been claims about the alleged "68:32 magic," which pertains to a consistent pattern of 68 percent of votes for Marcos and the remaining 32 percent of votes for Robredo.

The UP School of Statistics said the steady pattern in the unofficial outcome of the presidential race is not indicative of vote rigging.

"Hindi masasabi ng '68:32 ratio' trend kung mayroong pandaraya sa eleksyon (The '68:32 ratio' trend could not tell whether there is election cheating," it said. "Ang mga trend sa transmission ng boto tulad ng sa '68:32 ratio' ay hindi ebidensya ng pandaraya sa eleksyon (The trend on vote transmission, such as the '68:32 ratio' is not enough evidence that there is cheating in elections)."

The university's statistics experts added that it is "wrong" to presume that the votes have been manipulated just because Marcos retains a huge lead in the presidential derby.

"Ang hindi paggalaw ng '68:32 ratio' base sa cumulative totals ay hindi maituturing na irregularity. Mali ang mga kumakalat na analysis base sa cumulative o pinagsama-samang bilang ng boto sa bawat update (The consistent '68:32' ratio based on the cumulative totals is not tantamount to irregularity. The analysis on the cumulative total of votes in every update is wrong)," it said.
