MANILA - The Commission on Elections is conditionally canvassing the results of the party-list election subject to the final ruling of the Supreme Court on the fate of 12 disqualified parties.

The Comelec, sitting as the National Board of Canvassers, said it will officially canvass the results of the senatorial elections and the votes of 111 accredited parties in the party-list race.

"The remaining 12 we are not officially canvassing any of their votes as yet. Conditional lang na tinatanggap namin yan until such time there is a position taken by the SC," Comelec Chairman Sixto Brillantes said.

He said the poll body does not have a time frame on when it will declare the winners in the party-list election.
