Loren Legarda’s brother proclaimed as Antique representative

/ 09:54 PM May 10, 2022

ILOILO CITY—Antique Rep. Loren Legarda’s brother on Tuesday was proclaimed winner to replace her as representative of the province’s lone district.

Antonio Agapito “AA” Legarda Jr. got 189,611 votes, a wide margin against former Antique representative Paolo Everardo Javier (69,253) and former Integrated Bar of the Philippines president Abdiel Dan Elijah Fajardo (28,819).


Antonio drew controversy after he filed his certificate of candidacy and adopted a nickname “Inday Loren” that appears in the official ballot.

Inday Loren is the nickname adopted by the former senator when she ran for office in 2019 and won by a landslide. “Inday” is a Visayan term of endearment for a daughter, sister, or young girl.


Loren Legarda is running second in the senatorial race based on partial and unofficial results.

Proclaimed with AA Legarda were re-electionists Gov. Rhodora Cadiao and Vice Gov. Edgar Denosta who also won by large margins.
