in election protest’

Registered voters of EB Magalona town cried foul over the forging of their signatures included in the list of affiants in the filing of an election protest against Mayor Marvin Malacon, who was proclaimed the winning town mayor by the Commission on Election, in connection with the May 13 elections.

In a sworn affidavit subscribed to before lawyer Dennis Salem on June 10 in EB Magalona, the 19 complainants said that their names were included as affiants in the electoral protest and the signatures that appeared on top of their names were forged.

To show proof of their allegations, the complainants submitted their respective identification cards with their signatures. They also stressed that they have not accomplished any affidavits, affixed their signatures or appeared before the Notary Public, in relation to the electoral protest. moremoremore
