Candidates under PDP-Laban in Davao del Norte delivered a landslide victory over the Floirendo-Del Rosario led candidates of Hugpong Ng Pagbabago (HNP).
Proclaimed winners in the province were Edwin I. Jubahib, governor; Rey "Chiong Oy" Uy, vice governor; Congressman Alan Dujali, second district; and Cong. Pantaleon "Bebot" Alvarez for the first district.
In his Facebook page, Congressman Antonio “Tony Boy” Floirendo posted HNP’s defeat in Davao del Norte not surprising as money overflowed a day before election and that voters chose money over principle and their future.
“As they say, voters deserve the government they choose. The people have spoken. So be it,” he posted.
Floirendo appealed to the people of second district of Davao del Norte to be very vigilant, be wary and keep watch of the officials they voted.
“For I do not know for certain how they would be able to recoup the money they spent in this election. Our family have shared with the people of Davao del Norte. For the past half a century, the best we could offer. I pray that our province would continue to prosper under the new leaders majority voted for,” he shared.
He also assured that he will continue to be of service to the people of the said province for the remaining weeks of his term as congressman. He vowed to work hard that all projects lined up for this year would not be hampered.
