A total of 537 ballot boxes from the first and second districts of Camarines Sur are expected to arrive today for the start of the vote recount.

Camarines Sur, Iloilo and Negros Oriental are the three contested pilot provinces up for the recount.

Marcos lost to Vice-President Leni Robredo by just 263,473 votes, making the 2016 vice-presidential contest the tightest vice-presidential race in recent history. Reports from Rizza Mostar and Jessa Mylce Mella, ABS-CBN News
