Election Results

The results of the elections were greatly affected by the turbulent days in the late days of the month of April and early days of the month of May, leading to EDSA III rebellion by thousands of pro-Estrada followers who mobbed Malacanang Palace during the early hours of May 1, 2001. Some believes that some senatorial candidates urged the people to rise against the government that led to the bloody May 1 Riots in Manila. As a result, the senatorial candidates paid their price by winning only 5 out of 13 possible seats in the Senate. EDSA III (pronounced EDSA Tres), as was touted by some members of the Philippine media, was a very large protest rally that was sparked by the arrest in April 2001 of newly deposed President Joseph Estrada of the Philippines. ...
