Councilor Nava says his politics is anchored on principle
There is one thing Iloilo City Councilor Plaridel Nava is proud of as a politician: Loyalty is his strong suit.
“I have never changed political party since I joined politics in 2010,” Nava wrote in his Facebook account on Friday.
The politiko-abogado is eyeing the vice mayor’s office, with Councilor Joshua Alim as congressman and Dr. Pacita Gonzalez as mayor, in the 2019 midterm elections.
Neither a “balimbing” nor a “tibakla,” Nava said he stands on principle.
Since his election in 2010, the oppositionist councilor has remained a member of Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino-United Nationalist Alliance, the unity ticket formed by former President Joseph “Erap” Estrada and former Vice President Jejomar Binay in 2010.
Nava will likely face Vice Mayor Jeffrey Ganzon and R. Leone Geroche in a contest for vice mayor of Iloilo City.
