Guam - The Guam Election Commission certified all the results of the general election during its Wednesday meeting. The commission also addressed four additional complaints filed since its last meeting including three questioning the criminal record of Umatac mayor-elect Johnny Quinata and one from Patrick Iriarte contesting the election results citing possible fraud and a conspiracy to suppress his candidacy as a write-in for congressional delegate.

The GEC legal counsel will issue a response to all complaints, however, we should note this does not impact the certified results. GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan says anyone can file an election contest with the court within 15 days after the certification.

The GEC will next meet again on December 19.
