At first, the votes favored José Luis Fabrega, the candidate of the Democratic Revolutionary Party (PRD), but later the trend changed and Jose Isabel Blandon took the lead.
On Tuesday morning Blandon said through his Twitter account he received a call from Fábrega, to congratulate him on the outcome of the election.
Blandon said he spoke with the current Mayor Roxana Mendez to start coordinating the transition. The mayor-elect said he has the full cooperation of Mendez.
Meanwhile in the National Board of District Scrutiny of Panama, Farbrega issued a statement and publicly acknowledged the triumph of the Panameñista (Blandon), who will lead the Capital District starting on 1 July. (Telemetro)
