Supporters of winning Los Baños mayoralty candidate Caesar Perez have trooped to the municipal hall to witness the proclamation of Perez.
Perez and the rest of the winning Los Baños candidates are yet to be proclaimed by the Municipal Board of Canvassers (MBOC). The MBOC is still waiting for the go signal from the regional COMELEC office to proclaim the winning candidates. Earlier, the MBOC wrote a letter to the regional COMELEC office requesting for the lowering of canvassing threshold which will pave the way for the proclamation. The request stemmed from a defective CF card from one precinct in Brgy. Bayog. Although the 788 remaining votes from this precinct will no longer affect results for mayor, vice mayor, and top 7 councilors, these votes are crucial for councilors ranked 8th and 9th.
The MBOC are expecting that winners will still be proclaimed by today.
