said the administrative charges will be filed within thr week before the Commission on Elections
received Monday an official copy of the Comelec en banc's resolution dismissing Depasucat's motion for reconsideration. He
presumed that everybody, including Depasucat and Cordero, received an official copy for the Municipal Board of Canvassers (MBC )to convene and proclaim the winner after seven days unless the Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order. He
cited Section 18, Rule No. 18 of Comelec rules, which states that a decision or resolution of the en banc shall become final and executory after seven days from its promulgation unless retained by the Supreme Court. He
added that if the Comelec
failed to convene and proclaim the winner they will file contempt charges. He
again expressed disappointment on the Comelec
for allegedly delaying the proclamation.
