The release of these unofficial results came after several hours of delays, caused by glitches on the data packets coming into the transparency servers.
Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Marlon Casquejo clarified earlier that transmitting votes from polling areas did not stop, but the problem prevented media outfits from receiving information.
