Suspended lawyer and former senatorial aspirant Larry Gadon did not secure a spot in the Senate in the May 9 elections, contrary to a claim made by a YouTube video.
On June 25, YouTube user Philippines Trending News falsely claimed that Gadon made it to the Senate’s “Magic 12.”
The video comes more than a month after the Commission on Elections proclaimed the 12 winning senators in Pasay City led by actor Robin Padilla with 26,612,434 votes, reelectionist Loren Legarda with 24,264,969 votes and media personality Raffy Tulfo at 23,396,954 votes.
Gadon, who ran under the banner of Kilusang Bagong Lipunan, ranked 20th with 9,691,607 votes. It was his third failed senatorial bid in a row after losing the 2016 and 2019 senatorial races.
