In Iloilo, former representative Ferjenel Biron is running for his former post and seeks to replace his son Iloilo Rep. Braeden John Biron.

Iloilo Rep. Raul Tupas filed his COC for re-election on Monday.

In Malay town in Aklan which includes Boracay Island, Acting Mayor Frolibar Bautista is running for mayor.

Bautista assumed the mayoral post in July 2019 after the Office of the Ombudsman ordered the dismissal of former mayor Cawaling from government service.

The Ombudsman had found Cawaling guilty of grave misconduct, gross neglect of duty, conduct unbecoming of a public official in relation to his failure to implement national laws and local ordinances protecting the environment and regulating construction activities on Boracay Island.

Cawaling has appealed the decision of the anti-graft court.
