THE brother of boxing champ and Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao won the presidency of the Association of Barangay Councils in General Santos City Wednesday by a toss coin.

Roel Pacquiao of Barangay Apopong was running against Barangay Heights captain Lourdes Casabuena for the ABC presidency during the election held at Mt. Sabina Resort in General Santos City Thursday.

Both contenders received 13 votes each which prompted the Department of Interior and Local Government to do a best of five toss coin to determine the winner.

Roel Pacquiao came out the winner in the toss coin.

After the election, General Santos Mayor Ronnel Rivera swore in the new ABC officials with Pacquiao becoming an ex-officio member of the City Council being the ABC president.

Pacquiao is allied with the political party of Mayor Rivera while the rest of the board of directors of ABC is allied with former General Santos mayor Darling Antonino-Custodio.
