The Municipality of Kalayaan, the local government administering Spratly Group of Islands in West Philippine Sea, has a new mayor in person of Choy del Mundo. Del Mundo (142 votes) won the three-way fight against incumbent Mayor Eugenio Bito-Onon (59) and Rodrigo Jaca (28), all independent candidates.
The seat of local government of Kalayaan is in Pag-asa Island.
It is also worth noting that President-elect Rodrigo Duterte got the most votes in the said municipality with 71 votes, followed by Grace Poe with 69, Mar Roxas with 41, Jojo Binay with 17, and Miriam Santiago with 7.
Though the official counting of votes for the presidential and vice presidential positions is yet to start, probably a day or two after the Congress resumes session on May 23, two of Duterte’s major rivals Grace Poe and Mar Roxas have accepted defeat.
