Ferrer, others seeking
Silay, Talisay recounts


Vice gubernatorial bet Rep. Jeffrey Ferrer (Neg. Occ., 4th district) yesterday said he is joining defeated mayoral bets in Talisay and Silay cities in filing petitions before the Regional Trial Court for manual vote recounts.

Ferrer (NUP) said he is not seeking the manual recount to unseat Vice Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson (NPC) who was proclaimed the winner in the vice gubernatorial race, but to satisfy the clamor of his supporters to find out once and for all if the vote counting machines accurately counted their votes.

In fact, Ferrer said, he is congratulating Lacson on his win and wishing him good luck. moremoremore
