Comelec proclaims Mendoza Bulacan governor-elect

Bulacan governor-elect Jon-Jon Mendoza told radio station dzRB that a political neophyte like him neither had the capability nor the machinery to commit electoral fraud as accused of him by his opponent, Roberto Pagdanganan.

Pagdanganan lost to Mendoza by 19,998 votes and sought to stop the proclamation of the governor-elect, accusing him of electoral fraud. The Commission on Elections, however, has proclaimed Mendoza the new Bulacan governor this evening.
