Abalos family take key Mandaluyong positions
Three members of the Abalos family have secured three top positions in Mandaluyong City in the recently concluded 2019 midterm elections.
Incumbent Mayor Carmelita “Menchie” Abalos of Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan defeated her challenger, independent candidate Florencio Solomon, with 128,661 votes against 8,589 votes.
With the massive lead, Abalos gets a fresh mandate to serve a second term as mayor of Mandaluyong. Abalos replaced her husband, Benjamin “Benhur” Abalos II, who served three consecutive terms as mayor from 2007 to 2016.
Their two children were elected as the top councilors for two of the city’s districts.
