Laoag City Mayor Michael Marcos Keon was overwhelmed after his supporters went into a frenzy when it became clear he was going to be reelected in 2022.
On Thursday, May 12, the North Luzon politiko posted on Facebook a video taken the moment his supporters started celebrating when it became clear he has defeated his closest rival Chevylle Fariñas for the mayoral post.
“The reactions of my supporters who were with me on election night was a sight to behold!” said Keon.
It had been a close fight between Keon and Fariñas, whom Keon had also defeated in the 2019 polls. Keon won with 25,502 votes, while Fariñas only got 25,342 votes.
