Dagupan City Vice Mayor Brian Lim has defeated Mayor Belen Fernandez for Dagupan City’s highest executive post.
Lim had 49,156 votes against Fernandez’ 47,917 votes.
The outgoing mayor, admitting defeat, said the people of Dagupan had spoken.
Fernandez said she will continue her work as mayor and ensured a peaceful transition.
But she also slammed the disinformation campaign mounted against her during the past election campaign.
