This election shows how people throughout the country don't like LP (dilaws) anymore and proof that their followers (dilawans) are insignificant in numbers.
Liberal Party poised to get only 14 out of 244 House seats in 2019 polls
The once-ruling Liberal Party is set to face yet another uphill battle at the House of Representatives as it is poised to clinch only 14 out of the 244 seats for district representatives after the 2019 midterm elections.
Partial and unofficial results in the Commission on Elections' transparency server showed that in Metro Manila, only four Liberal Party members are leading and set to represent their respective legislative districts.
These are reelectionist congressmen Jose Christopher "Kit" Belmonte of the sixth district of Quezon City and Edgar Erice of the second district of Caloocan City.
Economics professor Stella Luz Quimbo is set to replace her husband, Miro Quimbo, to represent the second district of Marikina City, while Romulo "Kid" Peña Jr. defeated former Vice President Jejomar Binay at the congressional race in the first district of Makati City.
In the provinces, 10 Liberal Party members scored congressional seats, including Francis Gerald "Blue" Abaya of the first district of Cavite, Boy Umali of the second district of Oriental Mindoro, Josephine Sato of the lone district of Occidental Mindoro, Jocelyn Limkaichong of the first district of Negros Oriental, and Cheryl Deloso-Montalla of the second district of Zambales.
Rounding up the list are Gabriel Bordado of the second district of Camarines Sur, Raul del Mar of the first district of Cebu, Edgar Chatto of the first district of Bohol, Edcel Lagman of the first district of Albay, and Emmanuel "Tawi" Billones of the first district of Capiz.
Meanwhile, only two of the 81 gubernatorial posts nationwide were won by Liberal Party members.
These are Kaka Bag-ao of Dinagat Islands and Marilou Cayco of Batanes. Bag-ao is the incumbent representative of the lone district of Dinagat Islands at the House of Representatives.
In addition, only seven Liberal Party mayoralty candidates won in the 2019 local elections, two of which are in Metro Manila.
