Tolentino were proclaimed winners by the Batasang Pambansa as well as the official election canvasser, the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) thus granting President Marcos another six-year term as President of the Philippines. The electoral exercise was marred by alleged poll fraud from both sides of the political fence as well as violence. Marcos and Tolentino won by over a million votes according to the COMELEC. According to NAMFREL, an accredited poll watchdog, had Marcos winning only by a thin margin of 800,000 votes and Laurel winning over Tolentino. The opposition headed by Sen.

Events after the elections

Historians believe that Marcos won the election although he had votes padded to make it look like he beat Aquino by a landslide victory. The COMELEC final tally showed that Marcos won by twice the margin in the NAMFREL tally (roughly 1.6 million), and also had Tolentino winning over Laurel. However, the NAMFREL tally had Laurel winning. This election would have had Marcos as president and Laurel as vice-president. This allegedly fraudulent outcome would eventually lead to the EDSA Revolution which ousted President Ferdinand Marcos and installed Corazon Aquino as president.
