Original Story:

BENIGNO Aquino III was the top choice for president in eight regions all over the country, including the Metro Manila, a regional scan of the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting showed.

In the breakdown of votes, Aquino took Regions 4A, 5, 6, 7, 8, 13 (Calabarzon, Bicol, and the Western, Eastern and Central Visayas, and Caraga), the National Capital Region and the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. His closest rival, Joseph Estrada took Regions 2, 10 and 12 (Cagayan Valley, Northern Mindanao and SOCCSKSARGEN.

Manny Villar got the most votes from Region 1 (Ilocos). Gilberto Teodoro took one province, Camiguin, in Region 10 (Northern Mindanao).

Several regions were split between the two top presidential candidates, such as Central Luzon, Cordillera Autonomous Region, Regions 4B (Mimaropa) and 9 (Zamboanga Peninsula).

In Central Luzon (Region 3), some provinces proved to be Aquino’s bailiwicks, such as Bataan, Bulacan, Zambales, his home province Tarlac, and President Arroyo’s province, Pampanga. Estrada took Nueva Ecija and Aurora provinces.

Vice presidential candidate Jejomar Binay, meanwhile, took majority of the votes in Region 2, 4a, 11 (Davao), 12 and NCR, while his closest rival Mar Roxas took Regions 6, 7 and 13 (Western and Central Visayas, and Caraga).

"All the other regions were split between Roxas and Binay, which reflects how close a race this is between the two," said PPCRV media and communications director Ana de Villa-Singson.

This was based on the 4:34 p.m. partial and unofficial tally of the PPCRV of 88.78 percent of the total clustered precincts.
