MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED/CORRECTED) -- Malacañang doubts that the latest case filed against the Commission on Elections (Comelec) at the Office of the Ombudsman for non-review of the source code will render questions on the elected officials in the May 13 polls.

Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda believes the case will not affect the legitimacy of the recently concluded midterm elections.

"The business of governance has moved on. We have 12 legitimately elected senators and those who have won the elections, with the exception of a few that are still being questioned in either the Comelec or in other tribunals, have already taken their oaths," he said.

Lacierda also believes that the people have already accepted the results of the elections.
