FORMER senator John Osmeña declared on Tuesday that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo lost to the late Fernando Poe Jr. by 700,000 votes in the 2004 national election.

Osmeña, citing the reports made by his study group, also refuted claims by Arroyo's camp that she received 1.1 million votes more than Poe in Cebu.

Osmeña said in a press conference in Westin Philippine Plaza Hotel that Arroyo only led by 621,000 votes against Poe in Cebu.
