Newly-proclaimed Maasim Mayor Lawa takes oath of office
MAASIM, Sarangani (May 8, 2012) – Newly-proclaimed Maasim Mayor Arturo Lawa takes his oath of office before Judge Ruperto Besinga Jr. at the Maasim Municipal Court after his proclamation as the rightful winner of the 2010 election. With him are his wife and son. Lawa “lost” to Jose Zamorro by a narrow margin due to a PCOS machine which erroneously transmitted results of the test run at Precinct 21 in Kablacan village instead of what Lawa actually received - 136 votes as against only 62 votes by Zamorro - bringing the total votes Lawa garnered to 5,440 as against 5,382 of his chief rival – a margin of 58 votes.
