THE City Board of Canvassers (CBOC) proclaimed Sara Duterte's victory at past 5:00 p.m. Wednesday after getting 388,465 votes with a 228,240-vote margin against House Speaker Propsero Nograles' 160,225 votes.

The proclamation of the councilors for the second district, however, was held in abeyance because of the close margin between candidates April Dayap and Dr. Rally Bangoy, who are fighting for the eighth slot.

CBOC declared the winners Wednesday at the gallery of Sangguniang Panlungsod session hall.

In the vice mayoral race, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte won by a huge margin against rival former mayor Benjamin de Guzman.

Duterte garnered 440,030 while de Guzman only got less than a quarter of that with 105,962.

As of 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, the CBOC closed the automated consolidated and canvassing system (CSS) at 99.40 percent, tallying the votes of 557,602 voters out of the city's 948,428 registered voters.

On Tuesday, supporters and legal advisers of adversaries were on their toes waiting for the CBOC to formally proclaim the win of the Dutertes after much delay but were disappointed that the CBOC cannot do so after technical delays.

CBOC chair Comelec-Davao Region lawyer Danilo Cullo said two of the seven compact flash cards that would complete the consolidation were defective and had to be sent to Digos City for reconfiguration.

However, Comelec 11 regional election director Ray Sumalipao said he received a memorandum informing the CBOC that their request to proclaim the winners was granted.

Sumalipao, in a letter to the CBOC, however said they will not allow proclamation for the members of the City Council from the 2nd District as they found that the remaining unconsolidated results from said district can still affect the results.

CBOC vice chair Asteria Cruzadora, during the canvass session, specified that it only affects the eighth position for the second district Council members.

Before the proclamation, the session was briefly halted when power went off in the session hall due to a short circuit.
