AT LEAST 10 presidents of the association of village chiefs in Negros Oriental boycott the recent elections for the new set of officers of the Association of Barangay Councils (ABC) held at the Mayor's League Office Wednesday morning.

Reelected ABC federation president Arnulfo Teves Jr. said that some ABC presidents were allegedly influenced not to join the election.

But out of 25 ABC presidents in the province, only 10 of them failed to attend and join the proceedings.

Teves, who ran unopposed, still got 15 votes.

Governor Degamo's elder sister Gina Estrella, who also ran unopposed, got 14 votes.

Sun.Star tried to get in touch with some ABC presidents, to include Leonil Banogon of Dumaguete City, for reaction but to no avail.
