Former Philippine National Police chief General Gerardo Flores will fight three members of the powerful Garin family for congressman of Iloilo’s 1st District.

“The people of the 1st District must be given choices,” Flores said in a Panay News article.

According to him, the Garins have abused their political power in the 1st District.

Incumbent Rep. Richard Garin, Guimbal Mayor Oscar Garin and former Health secretary Janette Garin are running for the same post.

The 1st District is composed of the municipalities of Oton, Tigbauan, Guimbal, Igbaras, Tubungan, Miagao, and San Joaquin.
