Musical chairs! Gov Sy-Alvarado to swap places with VG Fernando in 2019
CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan — The top two incumbent officials in Bulacan have decided to switch their positions and filed their Certificates of Candidacy (COCs) at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) office in this city on Tuesday.
Vice Governor Daniel Fernando will seek the gubernatorial post while Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado will run for vice governor, both under the National Unity Party (NUP).
They are both in their third and last term in their respective positions.
“I promise to pursue all the good programs of Governor Alvarado, particularly the seven-point agenda of the provincial government of Bulacan,” Fernando said.
The filing of COC by the two provincial leaders apparently put an end to Bulakenyos’ confusion.
A couple of weeks ago, talks were rife that Alvarado would encourage his son, Rep. Jonathan Sy-Alvarado of the province’s First District and his, former Rep. Marivic Alvarado, to run for governor, contrary to his promise to Fernando that no one from the Alvarado family would face him in next year’s election. (PNA)
