FULL TEXT | Statement of Bacolod mayor-elect Alfredo Benitez on election protest filed by Mayor Evelio Leonardia


The baseless and frivolous complaint filed by the incumbent mayor is another desperate move of one who refuses to accept the truth.

The conduct of the 2022 elections was generally peaceful, credible and orderly.

No documented and concrete evidence has been shown to prove any irregularities at the voting precincts.

Such electoral protest is therefore an exercise of futility, and will surely be dismissed.

The people of Bacolod have spoken and it is time to move on and buckle down to work.*
