No shots fired in CAR on election day – PNP

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet — The May 13 midterm elections in the Cordillera has been generally peaceful and orderly with no shots ever fired on election day, the Police Regional Office-Cordillera reported.

NEW BAGUIO LEADERS -- The City Board of Canvassers proclaimed the top three political leaders in Baguio who emerged victorious in the May 13 midterm elections.  Rep. Mark Go (3rd from left) retained his post while retired police general Benjamin Magalong (4th from left) has been elected city mayor, with incumbent Councilor Faustino Olowan (5th from left) winning the vice mayoral race. The newly minted chief executive vowed to bring Baguio to greater heights during his watch. -- Neil Ongchangco

Some of the winning mayoral candidates in Abra only needed less than 2,000 votes to be proclaimed as chief executives during the May 13 midterm elections.

The janitor has bowed, the general won the game, and the gentle giant was able to win the hearts of the Baguio electorate.

Fongwan, Diclas make political comeback
Former Benguet governor Nestor Fongwan has been elected as the incoming congressman for the lone district of the province amassing 130,026 votes while his running mates, former Buguias mayor Melchor Diclas and incumbent board member Johnny Waguis, won as governor and vice governor, respectively.


While falling far short of votes to win a seat in the Senate, lawyer Joan O. Nalliw, the lone bet from the Cordillera who bravely joined the race for a national elective position, was not disappointed by the region’s voters, especially those from her home province, during the recent midterm elections.

STILL GRACIOUS IN DEFEAT -- Despite his failed bid to return as Baguio’s congressman, outgoing City Mayor Mauricio Domogan attended the City Hall flag raising ceremony early as he religiously does since serving the city from 1987 to present. Domogan has created a transition team to ensure that the incoming administration will further improve government services. -- Bong Cayabyab
MOUNTAIN PROVINCE LEADERS --The winning provincial candidates in Mountain Province led by governor-elect Bonifacio Lacwasan, Jr. (4th from l) were proclaimed on May 15. – Novy Afidchao
CLEARING TIME -- A concerned citizen takes down campaign materials at the Baguio City Public Market. The Commission on Elections is calling on all candidates to take down their campaign materials posted in different places to ensure cleanliness of their areas. -- Redjie Cawis
PWD VOTES -- Tomas Domingo Jr. (from right) leads his parents Melchora and Tomas Sr., along with Criscencia Lindog, who are visually impaired, to their respective voting precincts in La Trinidad, Benguet to cast their votes, as the recent national and elections allowed every Filipino to exercise their right to vote.  -- Ofelia Empian
VICTORIOUS -- Educator Vladimir Cayabas, who belongs to the Kankana-ey entho-linguistic group, casted his votes during the May 13 midterm elections. He is the only new face to win a seat at the city council after vying for the position in three attempts. -- Harley Palangchao
CORDILLERA SALAD -- Mallgoers witnessed the culinary demonstration of Cordilleran cuisine and enjoyed 100 bowls of garden salad with peanut brittle drizzled with lime fish sauce vinaigrette created by 60 chef students and four chef partners all from SKD Academy and Sinner or Saints Cafe on May 17. --Contributed photo
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP-BOUND -- Cordillera’s golfing pride, Luigi Paolo Wong, 18, will be part of the Philippine Junior Golf Team that will compete against best junior golfers worldwide in the World Junior Golf Team Championship in Tokyo, Japan next month.
