UPDATE 3: Now it’s official! Incumbent Congressman Solomon Chungalao and former Governor Teodoro Baguilat have been proclaimed by the COMELEC as Ifugao’s Congressman-elect and Governor-elect respectively. Nora Dinamling was also proclaimed as the Vice Governor-elect. Congratulations to the three of you. Source: Inquirer.
UPDATE 2 (17 May): Looks like Congressman Chungalao [read his congressional work here and his statement of assets and liabilities here] is going to win this one. Meanwhile, it’s a tight three-cornered fight in the gubernatorial race. Here’s the partial unofficial results from NAMFREL/PPCRV as of 16 May, 11 a.m.
Gubernatorial race (637 precincts)
BAGUILAT, Teodoro Jr. – 24259
PRUDENCIANO, Glenn – 22208
BALITANG, Eugene – 21886
Vice gubernatorial race
DINAMLING, Nora – 19279
MAGUIWE, Noli – 17759
CAPPLEMAN, Benjamin Sherwin – 15264

Congressional race (600 precincts)
CHUNGALAO, Solomon – 25201
DULAWAN, John Wesley – 12280
WACHAYNA, Placido Jr. – 5654
UPDATE 1 (16 May): Will former Governor Teodoro Baguilat stage a comeback in Ifugao? He will if he manages to maintain his lead up to the very end. It’s a close fight though since only about 1,000 votes separate him from Eugene Balitang.
Here’s the partial unofficial results from the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV):
Teodoro Baguilat Jr. – 19,660
Eugene Balitang – 18,665
Glenn Prudenciano – 17,258

I am hoping that Baguilat maintains the lead. He is a good man whose desire is to serve the Ifugao people once again. I think he can make it even if he runs as an independent candidate.
Thanks for visiting and your comment. Yup, haven’t heard of any bad press about him. And considering that the party system in the Philippines is a joke, independent candidates do perform well in elections so Baguilat has as good a chance as the other candidates. Thanks again.
I too am a Baguilat supporter (disclosure- I am a distant relative) but I am more of a supporter of a fair and representative electoral process. So lets hope that the best candidate does win and carries out his political promises, whomever that may be.
On a side note, I actually might be
returning to Ifugao (Lagawe) from the States soon to see my Lolo who is not doing well health-wise. I am looking forward to the visit which might coincide with the Baguilat victory, however the trip might be bittersweet.
I also am a big fan of the blog. Keep up the good work.
Your welcome, Bill. I met him couple of months ago in manila. He’s very unassuming. I remember during our conversation, he expressed his intention to serve Ifugao people again. To think na di ako from the Cordillera at di rin ako political financier,ha! Bilib ako! He’s my kind of public servant. ; ) I sound bias na. hehe! yeah, I think Baguilat’s related to Comm. Romeo Brawner… I think the Commisioner is doing good in Comelec. Is the desire for public service runs in the clan or in Ifugaos? Cordillera’s lucky to have true public servants like them. I also have high regards for Mayor Molina, Ganggangan and Vice Mayor M. Agmeyeng. ; )I always read your blog…
Hi Brawner from NY,
Thanks. You didn’t hope in vain because Baguilat won and was officially proclaimed :-).
Thanks for visiting the blog and for your encouragement. Safe travels when you do proceed with your trip 🙂
Oy very nice assessment about Cordillera public servants ha. I think we do have good officials here but we also have our share of bad ones. May the good ones increase and the bad ones decrease hehe. Thanks for always visiting 🙂
That’s good news. Baguilat won. Congratulations everyone for a clean and peaceful election in Ifugao!
Also read your review about Batad. I watched it last year sa CCP.I love it… I also got the chance,though matagal na, to watch banaue (ms.aunor and boyet)Igorota (late ms. solis)I loved these films. Kasi puno ng kultura at tradisyon plus yung story din.What do you think? good films? Do you know where i can buy a copy of those? Thanks!
Yes Batad is a good movie; it’s not faultless hehe but it’s good. Haven’t seen Banaue and Igorota. I heard they are pretty good movies too. Unfortunately, I don’t know whether copies of these films are available. I think they might make Batad available in VCD/DVD format but I’m not sure about the other two films. Thanks.
Batad dvd release is this May 13, 2008. Buy online (amazon.com, target.com, etc) or in movie shops in the US.
