Perez is new Los Baños mayor

Caesar Perez, a former three-term mayor of Los Baños, will again serve as the town’s mayor, defeating incumbent Mayor Anthony Genuino by a slim margin.

Perez, vice mayoralty candidate Procopio Alipon, and eight councilors were proclaimed winners on May 14 at 9:49 pm by the Municipal Board of Canvassers (MBOC) after 98.57% of precincts have transmitted their results. The proclamation took place almost12 hours after the transmittal of results from the last two precincts in Brgy. Maahas. There was a delay in the proclamation as the MBOC had to request for a lowering of canvassing threshold due to a defective CF card from one precinct in Brgy. Bayog. At about 8pm, the request was approved; however, the winning candidates could not still be proclaimed because attempts to access the system for the lowering of canvassing threshold using the assigned username and password were unsuccessful.

Perez, the incumbent Laguna vice governor, garnered 17,785 votes while Genuino got 15,392. Total number of registered voters in Los Baños is 53,984.

Perez won in seven barangays (Anos, Batong Malake, Maahas, Mayondon, Putho Tuntungin, San Antonio, and Timugan) while Genuino won in six barangays (Bagong Silang, Bambang, Baybayin, Lalakay, Malinta and Tadlac).

Meanwhile, Alipon defeated Sumangil in a landslide. Alipon garnered 24,549 votes while Sumangil had 14,533.
