Philippines protests erupt as son of late dictator wins presidency Updated: 2022-05-12 05:58:29 KST

Thousands of angry young voters gathered in front of the Philippines' elections commission building on Tuesday to protest the recent election that saw Ferdinand Marcos Jr. elected as the country's next president.
The son of a former dictator, his victory was marred by thousands of reports of election-related anomalies since Monday's vote.
Malfunctioning voting machines were one of the biggest complaints, with an election watchdog, saying the issue had severely impaired the electoral process.
Despite this, Marcos garnered around 31-million votes according to preliminary tallies, more than twice as many as his closest rival.
Officials say the margin was so large it could not have been swayed by fraud.
