Congratulations to incumbent Gensan Mayor Ronnel C. Rivera for being re-elected as the Tuna Capital’s Chief Executive judging from the 2019 Local Elections results of General Santos City. This is his 3rd term.
In the Vice-Mayoralty race, emerging winner is Atty. Loreto “Toton” B. Acharon, a political neophyte who proved formidable against his opponents Lorelei Pacquiao, sister-in-law of Senator Manny Pacquiao and Ryan Rivera, elder sibling of the mayor.

For the Top 12 positions for the City Council, leading the pack is AIM candidate Odjok Acharon, followed by PCM’s Lita Nu?ez & Lulu Casabuena. Rounding up the first five are Edmar Yumang & Liklik Tan, both of PCM.
The next candidates making it to the Magic 12 are incumbents Gacal, Lagare, Llido and Blando, Congson (incumbent), Dinopol and Atendido. Among them, the last two are AIM candidates.
Congratulations to all the winners that emerged from the 2019 Gensan Local Elections results!
a win is a win… but an incumbent like rivera should be pissed (and alarmed) that an upstart nobody like omila got 80 thousand votes… a difference of 30 thousand votes is not an affirmation of the mayor’s third term, it signals discontent in the populace and calls for some bold moves (not the usual small town thinking) if they want a fourth term c/o the mayor’s wife. there is a genuine opportunity for the opposition to break the budding political dynasty, if only they can find a better, more credible candidate.
