Former Governor Aurelio “Oyie” Umali is planning to return to his former seat in Nueva Ecija, according to a Politiko source.
Umali’s wife, incumbent Governor Czarina “Cherry” D. Umali, wil run for the third congressional district in Nueva Ecija.
“Switch yun mag-asawa. Si Gov Cherry ay babalik sa third (District) at si Gov Oyie sa Capitol,” the source said.
