Del Mar substitutes for Flormata in Cebu’s fifth legislative district
Congressional bet Rodolfo Flormata has withdrawn his candidacy in the May 2019 midterm election.
Flormata, a businessman, was initially picked by the Pederalismo ng Dugong Dakilang Samahan – Democratic Party of the Philippines to run for congressman of Cebu’s first district.
His partymate, Dr. Ron del Mar replaced him for the post.
In The Freeman report, Del Mar said the substitution came after the party decided to field him for the position instead.
Once elected, the practicing surgeon said he will file a bill that can further improve the country’s health system.
The government should make the impact of quality health services felt at the grassroots, he added.
Del Mar is running against Talisay City Mayor Eduardo Gullas.
