DINALUPIHAN, Bataan: Congressional candidate Felicito “Tong” Payumo on Monday announced that he would not yet file an electoral protest with the House of Representatives Electoral Tribunal but instead wait for the result of election protests filed by mayoral candidates from six of 11 towns and one city in Bataan. Payumo considered the filing of the election protests with the Regional Trial Courts more expeditious, especially if the proclaimed candidates would not block the holding of manual count. He estimated that counting will begin in three months and the results known after a month. He asked the proclaimed candidates to let the petitions go on if they claimed that they won in a clean and fair election. Jose “Jojo” Payumo 3rd filed Monday with RTC Branch 5 in Dinalupihan an election protest, making Tong’s nephew the sixth mayoral candidate to file such petition.
