Yanitsia Irizarry, mayor of Aguadilla.
After the elected mayor of Aguadilla, Julio Roldán, file a mandamus In court to begin the transition processes, Yanitsia Irizarry, current mayor of the municipality, reacted today, Friday, against the acts.
“I understand the desperation of the opposition candidate to assume a position that does NOT belong to him by law. The case of Aguadilla is not the same in San Juan where the margin of difference was by thousands of votes, the mayor is not going to re-election and there is no recount in question. San Juan has a sure mayor. Our situation is totally different and our lawyers are working it out in court. In Aguadilla there are many votes to be awarded. As the lawyer of my opposition candidate said, “It would be a high risk to place sensitive information on someone who could be NOT elected as mayor,” Irizarry pointed out in written statements.
According to the page of the State Elections Commission (CEE), the results of the night of the electoral event positioned the candidate for the Popular Democratic Party (PPD), Roldán, in the lead with 8,760 votes. In contrast, the current mayor only had 8,685 votes.
