Mikey Arroyo files congressional bid in Pampanga
Former congressman Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo on Friday filed his candidacy for the May 2019 polls in a bid to take over the post of his mother, House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
The younger Arroyo filed his Certificate of Candidacy at the Pampanga Provincial Capitol in San Fernando City, accompanied by his family, local leaders and supporters.
If successful, the eldest son of the incumbent House leader will be the Pampanga 2nd District Representative again. Her mother served the same position for three consecutive terms since stepping down from the presidency in 2010.
Arroyo was both a district and party-list representative in Congress before, and was also a movie actor.
His younger brother, Dato, was also once a congressman, representing Camarines Sur.(END)
