Aga Muhlach in close race with political rival

The rivalry between Congressional candidates in the 4th District of Camarines Sur Aga Muhlach of the Liberal Party running and Wimpy Fuentebella of Nationalist People's Coalition Party's rivalry still sizzles two days after the elections.

While Muhlach waits for the proclamation that he is the new Congressman of the 4th District in CamSur, his challenger Wimpy Fuentebella is saying he leads over Muhlach by about 2,000 votes.

Muhlach claims that there are up to 30,000 votes still to be counted, but Fuentebella contradicted him, saying he doesn't know the basis of Muhlach for saying that since "the four precincts cover only 1.46 percent of the total number of voters."

Muhlach declared that harassments are going on in their municipalities. "They are blocking are people and preventing our watchers to watch the proceedings."

Muhlach also raised concern over alleged 6,000 votes rejected as invalid.

Fuentebella, on the other hand, said Muhlach violated the anti-epal campaign over the weekend.

Both candidates hope to be declared the winner within the day.

If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
