ROSALES, Pangasinan, Philippines -– A candidate for barangay kagawad (village councilor) in Tayug town in Pangasinan province died of heart attack before polling precincts opened on Monday, a Commission on Elections official said.

Marino Salas, provincial election supervisor, said Mariano Pajarillo, a candidate for barangay councilor in Barangay Sto. Domingo in Tayug town, died at 4 a.m.

Salas said Pajarillo was immediately replaced with his wife, Belinda, as a candidate, through the process of substitution under the election code.

Salas said Comelec Minute Resolution 13-1164, provides the guidelines for substitution in cases of a candidate’s death, disqualification and permanent incapacity.

But substitution, he said, would be prohibited in cases of withdrawal of certificates of candidacies.
