Despite several allegations hurled against him in the lead up to the elections, Antolin “Lenlen” Oreta remained Malabon City’s top choice for mayor.

The city board of canvassers on Tuesday proclaimed him as mayor after he garnered at least 99,885 votes, or 99.2 percent of the total votes cast.

Oreta ran against administration-backed candidate Jeannie Sandoval, outgoing vice mayor, who received at least 55,759 votes.

During the campaign period, President Duterte called out Oreta for the alleged prevalent drug problem in Malabon, and threatened him with arrest if the city was not cleared of illegal drugs within a month.

Oreta belied the President’s allegation, saying 15 out of the 21 Malabon barangays had already been declared drug-cleared by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.

“There are no legal cases filed against us, so those are just rumors,” he said.

When asked why majority of city residents voted for him, Oreta replied: “I think I’ve won because they have seen our performance and our work ethic. And of course because of the help of our supporters.”

Now on his third term, Oreta said he would continue his flood control projects.

“Definitely the flood problem in Barangay Dampalit will be addressed,” he said.

Oreta said he was also keen on eradicating malnutrition in the city by giving the right nourishment to children.
