37 city ballot boxes
up for transfer today

Thirty-seven contested ballot boxes involved in the election protest filed by former Bacolod Rep. Monico Puentevella against Mayor Evelio Leonardia are scheduled to be transported to Commission on Election warehouse in Manila, today, a press release from City Hall said.

The 37 ballot boxes are the required 20 percent of the 186 contested ballot boxes to be sent to Manila for recount.

Leonardia garnered 93,519 votes, while Puentevella got 86,258 votes during the May 2010 elections.

The contested ballot boxes to be transported are from Cluster precinct numbers 3, 5, 23, 31, 36, 37, 55, 58, 63, 64, 76, 78, 80, 95, 107, 108, 119, 131, 132, 138, 142, 143, 160, 211, 229, 246, 247, 248, 251, 254, 256, 261, 264, 284, 286, 303, 304, and 307.

The contested ballot boxes will be escorted during transport by Philippine National Police Scouts, COMELEC, watchers and representatives of both Puentevella and Leonardia.

The press release said all expenses will be shouldered by Puentevella, except for the watchers and representatives of Leonardia, which will be shouldered by the mayor.*
