Imelda Papin files poll protest vs Fuentebella
SINGER Imelda Papin on Monday filed an electoral protest against former Speaker Arnulfo “Noli” Fuentebella who won as Camarines Sur fourth district representative on May 9 by a slim margin of 740 votes.
Papin filed her protest before the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal and asked for a manual recount, including the manual revision and even the count of the rejected ballots.
Papin asked the tribunal for a recount to annul and set aside Fuentebella’s proclamation and declare her as the duly elected representative of Camarines Sur.
Papin also asked the tribunal to secure the ballot boxes, the list of voters and voting records, the books of voters, and other documents and paraphernalia, as well as the automated election equipment and records, such as data storage devices.
She also asked the tribunal to direct the ballot boxes containing the ballots and keys, copies of election returns, list of voters with voting records and other documents or paraphernalia to be brought to the tribunal.
