Vergaras of Cabanatuan City change bets for 2019 polls
The leading politikos of Cabanatuan City in Nueva Ecija reorganized Thursday their line-up for next year’s polls.
Beating the Commission on Elections’ deadline for substitution of candidates, incumbent Cabanatuan City Mayor Julius Cesar “Jay” Vergara changed the position he intends to run for.
On his Facebook page, Vergara said he is vying instead for the vice mayoralty post of the city, while his daughter, Myca Elizabeth, will attempt to take over his current position.
During the original period for the filing of certificates of candidacy last October, Vergara gunned for the position of Nueva Ecija 3rd District Representative in Congress, vice his wife, Rosanna “Ria.”
That time, “Ria” was going to vie for the mayoralty post. It is not immediately known what “Ria” will be up to after Thursday’s development.
In his Facebook post on Thursday, Vergara said the substitution move was made “upang masigurado ang patuloy na Pagbabago…Progreso… sa Lungsod ng Cabanatuan.”
