In Guiuan, Eastern Samar, Mayor Annaliza Gonzales Kwan also filed Sunday her CoC for a possible second term.

Vice Mayor Veronica Ramirez and eight incumbent municipal councilors joined her. All are affiliated with the PDP-Laban.

In Matag-ob, Leyte, the fight for the top two elective posts will be a contest between father and son tandems.

Bernie Tacoy and his son, Vincent, are challenging the reelection bids of Mayor Michael Torrevillas and his son, Vice Mayor Bushi Torrevillas.

Michael and Bushi, who filed their COCs on Oct.1, have ruled the town for more than three decades.

“For 33 years, they have ruled our town, which remains poor and without much development. By running for mayor, I hope to have some developments in our town that had been left out by our neighboring municipalities in terms of development and progress,” Bernie said.
