Leni Robredo proclaimed winner in Camarines Sur
PILI, Camarines Sur—With 71,330 votes lead and two towns not included in the total canvass, Leni Robredo was proclaimed winner at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday as 3rd District Representative of Camarines Sur, beating opponent Nelly Favis-Villafuerte, who got 31,364 votes.
Lawyer Aireen Pasa, Robredo’s counsel, asked the provincial board of canvassers (PBOC) to go on with the proclamation even without the tallies from the towns of Calabanga and Bombon with total voters of 41,382 and 9,381, respectively.
The two towns left out of the group canvass report generated from the PCOS machine will not suffice to make difference in the overall winning of Leni.
A throng of supporters and the whole slate of elected officials of Naga City, who all won under Liberal Party slate, accompanied Robredo and erupted into cheers and applause after her proclamation.
In Camarines Norte, incumbent Governor Edgar Tallado lord it over with 103,379 votes against challenger Rep. Renato Unico Jr., who got 86,681 votes.
Tallado was also proclaimed Wednesday by the PBOC in Camarines Norte.
