Move on na: Belmonte urges victors, losers to unite after polls
The people have already spoken.
Quezon City Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte has enjoined all barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan candidates and their supporters to unite and work together now following the elections last May 14.
“Congratulations to everybody who participated in this democratic exercise—whether as candidates or as voters. Yes critics, democracy is alive and well in the Philippines,” she said.
“The elections are over. The people have spoken. Let the work of building the future begin,” she added.
She also lauded the peaceful and orderly conduct of elections in her city citing the report from National Capital Region Police Office director Camilo Cascolan.
She, meanwhile, described the recent elections as “very grueling” for her since most of the barangay officials are her close to her.
“I felt the thrill of their victories and the pain of their defeats,” she said.
She cast her vote at the University of the Philippines’ Integrated School in Barangay Kristong Hari last Monday.
