Richard Garin seeking reelection
Rep. Richard Garin (1st District) is running for reelection as an independent candidate.
Garin, the provincial chairman of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino – Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), filed his certificate of candidacy at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) provincial office in La Paz, Iloilo City Thursday.
“If you are an independent candidate, you no longer need a Certificate of Nomination and Acceptance (CONA) from your party. But Comelec gives independent candidates until October 17 if you are submitted a CONA,” the politiko said in a Panay News article.
Garin said he was informed by the PDP-Laban that his CONA is “for delivery pa lang.”
