Writ of Ex­e­cu­tion on June 8, 2017. The writ or­dered for the procla­ma­tion of Garbo on June 27, 2017.

Elec­tion lawyer and sen­a­to­rial can­di­date Ro­mulo Ma­cal­in­tal is set to file a Mo­tion for Re­con­sid­er­a­tion against Garbo at the SC.

“Ang kaso po ni Mayor Bok­ing Morales sa Korte Suprema ay tu­loy tu­loy pa din po at kami pong kanyang mga abo­gado ay magha­hain ng mga dagdag pang mga ar­gu­mento up­ang ma­p­atu­nayan na siya ang kara­pat da­pat na mayor ng Ma­bal­a­cat City, Pam­panga,” said Ma­cal­in­tal.

The case of Mayor Bok­ing Morales be­fore the Supreme Court is on­go­ing and us, his lawyers, will present ad­di­tional ar­gu­ments to prove that he is the right­ful mayor of Ma­bal­a­cat City), said Ma­cal­in­tal.

“Hindi lamang po nam­ing maar­ing ta­lakayin ang de­talya ng kaso niya dahil pend­ing pa po ito pero makakaasa po kayo na nanini­wala kam­ing metatag ang kanyang kaso at sa huli, kami umaasa na si Mayor Bok­ing ang man­anaig,” he added.

(We can­not just tackle the de­tails of his case be­cause it’s pend­ing but you can ex­pect that like us who be­lieve his case is strong and in the end, we are hop­ing Mayor Bok­ing will pre­vail), he added.

Morales, for his part, ex­pressed hopes that the high court will is­sue an or­der fa­vor­able to him be­cause of the new ev­i­dence.

With the “new ev­i­dence we are hop­ing the SC will side with us,” ac­cord­ing to Morales, who is now run­ning for vice-mayor.

Sup­port­ers of both Morales and Halili said the SC de­ci­sion dis­en­fran­chised more than 40,000 vot­ers.
