Row in Philippines over leaked tally
AP , MANILA

Opposition leaders slammed national election officials yesterday for prematurely disclosing incumbent Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's victory in the May 10 presidential vote, saying the move was illegal and contrary to their own count showing her rival won.

Two top election officials on Monday disclosed that Arroyo beat opposition front-runner and popular actor Fernando Poe by a narrow margin, based on a secret count of official election returns.

Under the constitution, only Congress counts votes for president and vice president.

"It's very irresponsible," Poe's lawyer, Harriet Demetriou, told radio station DZRH, adding that in her personal tally, the actor won.
