29 file CoCs in Dumaguete

Twenty-nine candidates for elective positions in Dumaguete City have filed their certificates of candidacy at the Dumaguete City Commission on Elections, as of end of the five-day filing of CoC yesterday.

City election officer Gildu Agoncillo said it appears that all of them are qualified, and apparently there are no nuisance candidates, all have the right intention to serve, since most of them are professionals, incumbent city or barangay officials, lawyers and businessmen.

As of closing time, four have filed their CoCs for mayor: Vice Mayor Woodrow Maquiling Sr. under the Nationalist People's Coalition (NPC), Quirino Ramirez and Mercedarius Generoso (Independent), and Felipe Antonio Remollo (PDP-Laban). .moremoremore
