De Claro led the Procession towards the conclave-like room where Council Members would stay. He, likewise closed the doors, while the remaining members returned to the chapel to have a vigil.

Dr. Anthony Bermudez, O.P. led the election process. And the result was eight of  the Council Members voted Prof. Nestor Limqueco, O.P. While the remaining two were in favor of Atty. Marwil Llasos, O.P.
