Marañon proclaimed

The overwhelming lead of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday enabled the Provincial Board of Canvassers to declare him the winner of the gubernatorial race of Negros Occidental over Genaro Alvarez Jr. even without the returns from Victorias City and Hinoba-an town.

A teary-eyed Marañon was proclaimed governor for a second term at the Social Hall of the provincial Capitol in Bacolod City at 5:46 p.m. amid cheers and applause from jubilant supporters, political allies, family and friends.

The governor had a lead of 160,595 votes from 29 towns and cities, that was more than enough to cover for whatever would be the turnout from Victorias City that has 52,074 voters and Hinoba-an that has 25,724 voters, Provincial Elections Supervisor Wil Arceño said.moremoremore
