With 89.27% of Election Returns counted, GMA.TV has released the results of the voting for the Representative for the First District of South Cotabato.
From the looks of it, incumbent GenSan City Mayor Pedro “JUN” Acharon, Jr. could be the clear winner.
Consider this GenSan Election results….
Partial Unofficial Tally as of 2010-05-12/ 7:14:08am/ 89.27% of ERs
Acharon, Pedro Jr. B – 157,550
Angangan, Aldwin B. – 934
Gacal, Franklin Jr. M. – 6,130
Garcia, Rogelio B. – 13,551
Melliza, Ramon B. – 49,470
Plaza, Abelardo S. – 708
Even if one adds up the votes of Acharon’s five rivals, it is not even 50% of what he got at 156,624!
Mayor Jun Acharon‘s good track record in pushing forward GenSan’s economy to what it is now certainly left a mark on the people’s minds.
These results only mean that people would want him to continue doing what he did to ensure that the quality of life of the constituents of GenSan and with the rest of the 1st District of South Cotabato (Tampakan, Tupi, Polomolok) would continue to improve even more.
Let us hope that the new Congressman in Jun Acharon still manages to live up to that challenge as all eyes will be on him once he enters the august halls of the Sangguniang Bayan in Quezon City.
And of course, Bariles will be there to record that momentous event.
FLASH: Congressman-elect Pedro B. Acharon, Jr. was proclaimed winner by the COMELEC at 3am last night at the Regional Headquarters in Koronadal City! – May 20, 2010
