BY CARLA GOMEZ
Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3rd District) yesterday said the election protest filed against Rep. Alejandro Mirasol (Neg. Occ., 5th District) before the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal has been withdrawn.
Benitez, who heads the Liberal Party in Negros Occidental, said there is no longer any pending case against Mirasol (LP) before the HRET.
Former Board Member Emilio Yulo III, who lost his bid for the fifth congressional seat of Negros Occidental in the May 13 polls to Mirasol, who is his uncle, had filed the election protest before the HRET.
