May 18, 2019 @ 19:45

The daughter of slain Tanauan, Batangas mayor is set to succeed him.

Results of the midterm polls showed Angeline “Sweet” Halili receiving 41,757 votes compared to opponent Sonia Aquino’s 27,381 votes.

Halili’s running mate, Jun Jun Trinidad, was elected vice mayor with 50,111 votes.

Antonio was shot dead last year during a flag ceremony at the city hall.

President Rodrigo Duterte accused the late mayor of involvement in the illegal drug trade.

Angeline, however, denied the allegation against her father.
