Nuisance Po runs for governor in Misamis Oriental again

People usually call this man a nuisance candidate since he’s been running for governor in Misamis Oriental as an independent candidate.

Just as the provincial office of the Commission on Elections started to receive certificates of candidacies (COCs) the other day for politicians running for different positions, 73-year-old Manuel Po’s name has again surfaced as among the candidates for governor in Misamis Oriental. For the third time Po filed again his certificate of candidacy as gubernatorial candidate without a party. Po hails from Lower Jasaan. Misamis Oriental and he filed his COC after lunch last Friday.

In 2004 and the subsequent elections in 2007 Po ran in the same post but lost to famous candidate Governor Oscar Moreno. 



In a related news, Roldan Lagbas, son of the late Congressman Danilo Lagbas of the First District of Misamis Oriental also filed his candidacy for mayor in Sugbongcogon town, as an independent candidate.

In Cagayan de Oro City, City Comelec officer Linda Castillo told the media since the filing started on November 20, 2009, no one has yet filed a certificate of candidacy in the city.

But rumors are starting to surface that Vice Mayor Vicente Emano, titular head of Padayon Pilipino, is aiming to be re-elected mayor of the city in 2010.

Emano, who is now with vice presidential aspirant Joseph Estrada’s Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino, will be tandem by Congressman Rufus Rodriguez, who is seeking his second term in the second district.

There were also reports that Emano’s tandem in the First District is former City Councilor Benjamin “Benjo” Benaldo, who is also seeking a seat as representative against incumbent congressman Rolando Uy.

Benaldo lost to Rep Rufus Rodriguez in 2007 when he ran in the second district but the two leaders of the city are now under one roof. City Councilor Ramon Tabor is also reported to be Emano’s vice mayoralty candidate.
