“Loyalty, winnability, and track record,” will be the yardstick for choosing the congressional candidate of Rep. Jerry Treñas, he told Politiko.

Treñas said they are considering former councilors Julienne “Jam-Jam” Baronda, Nielex “Lex” Tupas for the city’s lone congressional district.

“We will get the opinion of our Barangay Captains and leaders and decide on the basis of loyalty to the group, winnability, and track record,” the politiko-abogado said.

“We are going to decide before the filing of the certificates of candidacy,” he added.

Treñas is seeking to run for mayor of Iloilo City in the 2019 elections. He will face his brother-in-law, incumbent Mayor Jose “Joe” Espinosa III.
