MANILA - Laguna Vice-Governor Ramil Hernandez has been sworn in to replace ER Ejercito as governor of Laguna province.

Hernandez took his oath at the Commission on Elections main office in Intramuros, Manila. Poll commissioner Elias Yusoph administered the oath.

This comes after the Comelec ordered Ejercito to vacate his post after he was found guilty of election overspending during the 2013 midterm polls.

Ejercito has rejected the order and petitioned the Supreme Court to stop Comelec from implementing his ouster.
