Cayetanos emerge victorious in Taguig polls
The Taguig City board of canvassers on Tuesday proclaimed members of the Cayetano family, who won the mayoral and congressional races in the city.
Television director Lino Cayetano was proclaimed mayor-elect after garnering 170,809 votes, edging Taguig-Pateros Rep. Arnel Cerafica, who obtained 108,050 votes.
“We thank the Taguigeños for this overwhelming victory in the polls. We also call on the residents to unite as we work together as their new leaders,” Lino Cayetano said.
He vowed to continue key programs and reforms for residents of the city, particularly scholarship grants and the establishment of a second hospital to improve healthcare services.
Apart from Lino Cayetano, other winning candidates include third term vice mayor-elect Ricardo Cruz and second district Representative-elect Lani Cayetano.
Former Foreign Affairs secretary Alan Peter Cayetano is expected to retake the congressional representative seat of the first district of Taguig.
His proclamation, however, is on hold pending the transmission of votes from Pateros.
Alan Peter is the brother of Pia Cayetano, who ranks fourth in the partial and unofficial results of the senatorial race.
The siblings both served as members of the senate during the 14th Congress.
Their father, the late Renato Luna Cayetano, popularly known as Compañero because of his popular public affairs talk show Compañero y Compañera in the 1990s, also served as senator, from 1998 to 2003.
