Two (2) additional Punong Barangays signified support to Mayor Aquino in June 23, 2018 during the mass oath taking ceremonies of the Sangguniang Kabataan and Barangay Officials.

Managed by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), the LIGA election was observed only by representatives from the COMELEC, the Department of Education (DepEd) and SOS. Media practitioners - government or private - were allowed inside the premises of the Convention Center only after the proclamation of winners. (CJ)
