MANILA (UPDATE) – Incumbent Francis Zamora has been proclaimed as the winner of San Juan mayor with a total of 66,883 votes.

His running-mate, Warren Villa, also leads the partial and unofficial results with 55,920 votes. 

With victory at reach, Zamora thanked his supporters. 

"Mga minamahal kong San Juaneño, magkita-kita po tayo ngayon sa Filoil Flying V Centre para sa proclamation ng mga nanalo dito po sa Lungsod ng San Juan! Muli, maraming, maraming salamat po sa inyong pagmamahal, suporta at tiwala," Zamora said in a Facebook post. 

Zamora, a former basketball player for the La Salle Green Archers, first ran as mayor in the 2019 local midterm elections, defeating former senator Jinggoy Estrada's daughter, Janella Ejercito Estrada, and ending the Estrada-Ejercito's 50-year rule in the city.
