Although he already exhausted his years as barangay captain, Elmer Abella, who garnered the most of number of votes as councilor of Duljo-Fatima, Cebu City, can sit as village chief.

Comelec-7 director Veronico Petalcorin said there is no need for a DILG memorandum for Abella to assume the top post in Dul-Fatima.

He said Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña, the head of the BOPK, can appoint someone to fill up the vacancy in the barangay council.
