Lucilo Bayron wins Puerto Princesa recall elections

PUERTO PRINCESA, Palawan (2nd UPDATE) - Puerto Princesa Mayor Lucilo Bayron was sustained by voters as he won the recall elections held on Friday.
It was around 6 a.m. on Saturday when the city board of canvassers proclaimed Bayron as the duly elected mayor, with 44,299 votes.
The CBOC dismissed the last ditch petition of former Mayor Edward Hagedorn to stop the canvassing, saying that the grounds cited by the Hagedorn camp are misplaced and do not apply in this case.
Hagedorn had argued that some 11 election returns from clustered precincts should be excluded due to formal defects, but the CBOC said formal defects are not grounds for suspension or exclusion as stated by the Supreme Court in jurisprudence.
Hagedorn finished the vote with 39,002 votes.
Bayron thanked his supporters and everyone who went out to vote during Friday's recall election.

Philippine Airlines

Philippine Airlines, Inc. (abbreviated as PAL and also known historically as Philippine Air Lines) operating as Philippine Airlines, is a flag carrier of the Philippines. Headquartered in the Philippine National Bank Financial Center in Pasay City, the airline was founded in 1941 and is the first and oldest commercial airline in Asia operating under its original name. Out of its hubs at Ninoy Aquino International Airport of Manila and Mactan-Cebu International Airport of Cebu City, Philippine Airlines serves twenty destinations in the Philippines and 26 destinations in Southeast Asia, South Asia, East Asia, Oceania and North America. Formerly one of the largest Asian airlines, PAL was severely affected by the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis. In what was believed to be one of the Philippines' biggest corporate failures, PAL was forced to downsize its international operations by completely cutting operations to Europe and eventually Middle East, cutting virtually all domestic services excluding routes operated from Manila, reducing the size of its fleet and terminating the jobs of thousands of employees. The airline was placed under receivership in 1998, gradually restoring operations to many of the destinations it formerly serviced. PAL exited receivership in 2007 with ambitious plans to further its previously serviced destinations, as well as diversify its fleet. Philippine Airlines is the only airline in the Philippines to be accredited with the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Philippine Airlines carried more than 9 million passengers during the 2010-2011 period.
