Iloilo Vice Governor Oscar “Richard” Garin Jr. filed his COC past 3pm of October 5 as the congressional candidate of the ruling Liberal Party (LP) in the First District.

He is running for the same position that is currently being held by his wife, Iloilo First District Representative Janette Loreto-Garin.

His mother, San Joaquin Mayor Ninfa Serag-Garin, also filed her COC as candidate for the Iloilo Provincial Board in the First District.

On the same day, LP congressional bets filed their COCs including Pavia Mayor Arcadio Gorriceta for Second District, incumbent Arthur “Toto” Defensor Jr. for Third District, former Governor Niel Tupas Sr. for Fourth District, and incumbent Niel “Junjun” Tupas Jr. for Fifth District.

All of LP’s candidates for the Iloilo Provincial Board have also filed their COCs. These include incumbents June Mondejar and Demetrio “Demy” Sonza for Second District; incumbents Emmanuel “Manny” Gallar and Licurgo “Curging” Tirador for Third District; Rommel Conte and Carmen Rita “Mitch” Monfort-Bautista for Fourth District; and incumbent Nielo Tupas and Tessie Villanueva for Fifth District.
