0 324

Former governor Victor Tanco, Sr. will run for vice governor Capiz province.

On November 29, Tanco filed his Certificate of Candidacy as a substitute for former Tapaz mayor Romualdo Exmundo, who has decided to run for Board Member instead.

Essex Quintia, provincial chairman of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan, filed the ex-Liberal Party member’s COC on his behalf.

In a Panay News article, Tanco explained that only the ruling party was willing to field him as a candidate for the 2019 midterm polls.

“Maybe I am of no use to Liberal Party anymore, but I did not feel hurt. I am just looking an opportunity to serve the people of Capiz,” Tanco said.

Tanco will face former board member James Magbanua of the National Unity Party and Dr. Gilson Albaña of the Hugpong Federal nang Pilipinas.
