The candidate for mayor of San Juan for the New Progressive Party, Miguel Romero, said at a press conference tonight that he was “happy” to leave the political campaign behind and potentially assume the position of mayor of the capital.
“The people demanded a change in San Juan,” said the candidate that 69.32% of the schools reported was placed first with 28,593.
However, Manuel Natal of the Victoria Ciudadana Movement was located at a distance of 1,172 votes, which represents a short advantage for the new progressive.
Given this, Romero accepted there are still votes to be counted but “I have no doubt that we will prevail.”
In addition, the candidate called on the other parties to “unite for the city.”
