COMELEC lists 26 sub bets in CAR
by Jane B. Cadalig

Twenty-six candidates in the Cordillera who are no longer keen on running in the May midterm elections have so far been substituted by wannabes who were nominated by their respective political parties.

The Commission on Elections-Cordillera released the initial list, which was consolidated after the Nov. 29, 2018 deadline of substitution of candidates who withdrew, died, or was disqualified by final judgment.

The Nov. 29 deadline for substitution is applicable to candidates whose surnames are different from that of the candidate they are substituting.

Based on Comelec Resolution 10420, the substitution of a candidate who withdrew is still allowed until midday of election day, provided that the substitute and the substituted share the same surname. In the old Comelec rules, only the candidate who died or disqualified can be substituted until midday of election day.

In Abra, the Comelec listed 11 substitute candidates. They are Tony Domesag who is running for first district board member; Chari Bersamin; and Kiko Bernos and Tony Barras who are running for vice mayor and councilors of Bangued, respectively.

The other substitute candidates are Jay Dominador Go, who is running for councilor of Bucay; Janssen Buemio and Joy Chong who are running for vice mayor and councilor of Pidigan, respectively; Idas Seares and Grani Joson who are running for councilors of Lagayan; and Ari Lucas Bautista and Eddie Dickson who are running for vice mayor and councilor of San Juan, respectively.

There are three substitute candidates in Apayao: Miguel Bayongasan and George Aswigue who are running for councilors of Conner and Kyle Bulut, who is running for councilor of Calanasan.

In Baguio City, the substitute candidates are Aki Reyes, Gitwa Carpio, and Marvin Yang-ed who are running for councilors and Rafael Wasan who is eyeing a seat in the Lower House.

The substitute candidate in Benguet is Sambrano Soriano who is running for board member representing the second provincial district.

In Kalinga, the substitute candidates are Ditten Suma-al, Faustino Teckney, Jr., and Noel Tolentino, all eyeing to become members of the Tabuk City council; Nonito Bartolome, who is running for councilor of Rizal; and Alonzo Saclag, Jr., who is running for second district board member.

The substitute candidates in Mountain Province are Randy Badcao, who is running for councilor of Bauko and Abrian Libang, who is running for the province’s representative to Congress.

Substitution of candidates who withdrew, died, or disqualified is allowed only for those who belong to a political coalition and not for those running as independent.
