Daza files protest with HRET

Catarman, Northern Samar - Liberal Party stalwart and re-electionist Deputy Speaker Raul Daza (First District, Northern Samar) filed his election protest before the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal (HRET) recently.

Daza, one of the senior LP lawmakers in the Lower House, told reporters in an interview here, yesterday, that he filed his electoral protest because he was allegedly cheated in the counting of votes at the Northern Samar Provincial Board of Canvassers that led to the proclamation of his opponent returning Congressman Harlin Abayon.

Daza said that "Abayon had an alleged margin of only 52 votes. I got 72,805 votes per canvass by the Provincial Board of Canvassers while Abayon got 72, 857 votes. In my electoral protest filed last May 31 at the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal, I asked for a manual count of ballots in 17 precincts where my votes were not counted."
