He won against Giovanni “Bani” Señar, who conceded even before all the votes cast were counted.

Bengua got 187 votes while Señar got 134.

More than 300 municipal councilors have trooped to Naga City since three days ago in anticipation of the tight race.

Interviewed by the media, Senar said he had given his best effort by offering a sterling performance during his incumbency, both in the province and in the national organization of municipal councilors.

Señar is from Ragay while Bengua hails from Pasacao.

Before Bengua’s election as PCL president, he was formerly a punong barangay and the Liga ng mga Barangay Provincial Federation President.
