“Nothing is final yet.”

Cebu City Vice Mayor Mike Rama had this to say after Councilor Prisca Niña Mabatid posted photos of a political meeting that featured personalities believed to be in the 2022 lineup of the PDP-Laban-Barug party.

Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Dino, Metropolitan Cebu Water District chairman and former city councilor Jose Daluz, Cebu City Councilors Mabatid, Raymond Garcia, Jerry Guardo, James Cuenco, JunJun Osmeña, Joel Garganera, and Dondon Hontiveros, and former Councilor Jocelyn Pesquera, lawyer Rey Gealon, and Cebu City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office chief Ramil Ayuman were shown in the photos.

“It’s official. Thank you, Lord! Good luck to us for 2020. Mayor Mike Rama please insert. Mayor-vice mayor-congress-councilors,” the caption read. (

The PDP-Laban-Barug allies were called to an assembly by PDP-Laban vice chairman and Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi in Pampanga Saturday.

“Being the head of Partido Barug, I also have my own processes. I have yet to set a meeting. I am glad though that my name was highlighted during the national assembly as a mayoralty candidate. It’s heartwarming,” according to Rama.

The vice mayor said that by the end of July, they would be able to release nominees for next year’s polls.

“We wish by the end of July, all of these, especially the major positions, will likely be identified. But still until it’s final, it is not yet final,” he added.
