DAVAO CITY, May 16 — The City Board of Canvassers (BOC) proclaimed on Wednesday night the winning candidates of Davao City’s three political districts except for the city councilors of the second district.

BOC chair lawyer Aimee Ampoloquio announced the proclamation of Karlo Nograles as the duly elected Congressman of the First District with the highest vote of 132,225.

First District councilors proclaimed were Mabel Sunga-Acosta with 142,440 votes, Edgar Ibuyan-124,855; Leonardo Avila-124,045; Leah Librado-123,294; Melchor Quitain-114,500; Nilo Abellera Jr.-106,263; Joan Bonguyan-Quilos-104,875; and Bonifacio Militar with 100,514 votes.

Unopposed candidate Isidro Ungab was proclaimed congressman of the Third District with 114,657 votes.

The Third District councilors are Karlo Bello with 94,894 votes, Bernard Al-ag with 92,894; Myrna Dalodo Ortiz-86,255; Rachel Zozobrado-84,525; Joselle Villafuerte-72,340; Antoinette Principe-70,296; Victorio Advincula Jr.-68,217; and Rene Elias Lopez with 60,182 votes.

Second District congresswoman Mylene Garcia was proclaimed with 99,869 votes.

Ampoloquio said the Second District councilors will be proclaimed about two days after they receive the two compact flashcards of two clustered precincts from the Comelec central office.

The PCOS machines of the two clustered precincts numbers 777 and 753 were defective. The said precincts have 2,258 voters. The number would affect the number eight and nine spots of the third district.

Jimmy Dureza who occupies the number eight spot with 83,761 votes and 9th spot is Arnold Apostol with 82,190 votes.

Ampoloquio further explained that they can’t print the certificate of canvass and proclamation (COCP) if all of the eight councilors are not included.

The BOC also waited for winning mayoral candidate Rodrigo Duterte and incoming vice mayor Paolo Duterte so they will be proclaimed but both were not around. (PNA)
