MANILA, Philippines - The Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Friday granted ABS-CBN's petition for the 21st copy of election returns in the May 10, 2010 polls.

A copy of election returns will allow ABS-CBN to counter-check voting figures as it conducts its own unofficial parallel sampling count with STI.

Comelec Commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal said the decision shows the poll body is really serious in holding elections on Monday.
