PARTIDO REPORMA FIELDS FRANCO TITO FOR GOVERNOR IN DAVAO DE ORO

By ROGER M. BALANZA

The Partido Reporma announced that former Mt. Diwata barangay captain Franco Tito is its official candidate for Vice Governor in Davao de Oro Province in the 2022 elections.

The opposition party that is fielding the tandem of Senator Ping Lacson (President) and Senator Tito Sotto (Vice President) chaired by Davao del Norte 2nd District Rep. Pantaleon Alvarez, made the announcement in a post on Faceook on November 15, Comelec deadline for substitution of candidates in the 2022 election.

Tito, according to Partido Reporma, substituted for Alexander Petalcorin Agustin, the Partido Reporma candidate who withdrew his COC.

The photo of Partido Reporma top officials Alvarez and Davao del Norte Governor Edwin Jubahib, the party secretary general, endorsing Tito, was posted in the FB accounts of Partido Reporma and Elma Sy-Tito, wife of Tito.

Also endorsed in the photo is Partido Reporma’s candidate for governor, political neophyte Dorothy Gonzaga, a former justice of the Court of Appeals.

The photo, taken inside the office of Comelec Nabunturan in Davao de Oro where Tito filed his Certificate of Candidacy (COC) on November 15, Monday, showed the hands of Tito and Gonzaga, being raised by Jubahib and Alvarez, former House Speaker and former secretary general of the ruling PDP/Laban chaired by President Rodrigo Duterte.

In the race for vice governor, Tito will be up in a one-on-one fight against incumbent Gov. Jayvee Tyron Uy, the candidate of the Hugpong Ng Pagababago (HNP) of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

The governor’s race will also be a one-on-one battle between HNP’s Senior Board Member Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy, the governor’s father, and Partido Reporma’s Gonzaga, wife of PDP/Laban Davao regional chair Davao de Oro 2nd District Rep. Ruwel Peter Gonzaga.

PDP/LABAN TO KICK OUT DAVAO DE ORO 2ND DISTRICT REP. RUWIL PETER GONZAGA

For supporting a candidate from another party, the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino/Lakas ng Bansa (PDP-Laban) will kick out Davao de Oro Rep. Ruwil Peter Gonzaga.

Gonzaga will be thrown out for “acts inimical to the party,” according to a well-placed source inside the ruling party.

Gonzaga, the PDP-Laban Davao de Oro provincial coordinator, is supporting the gubernatorial bid of his wife, Dorothy Gonzaga, a member of the Partido Reporma chaired Alavarez, a former House Speaker.

Alvarez is the former secretary general of the PDP-Laban who broke ties with ally President Rodrigo Duterte and the ruling party to join the opposition party Reporma.

Dorothy, a former Associate Justice of the Court of Appeals, is up against incumbent Governor Jayvee Tyron Uy of the Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HnP), the regional party chaired by presidential daughter Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

Although PDP-Laban has yet to name its standard bearer, Sara Duterte is a potential presidential candidate of the ruling party chaired by President Duterte.

If Sara Duterte decides to run under the PDP-Laban, she would be locking horns with other opposition presidential bets, including Senator Ping Lacson of the Partido Reporma of Alvarez.

The anomaly on political loyalty in Davao de Oro, where reelectionist Gov. Uy will be challenged by Dorothy Gonzaga of the Reporma, who is supported by her husband Rep. Gonzaga, who is still with the PDP-Laban, is among issues raised against Rep. Gonzaga that will prompt his ouster from the PDP-Laban, said the source, who begged anonymity, who adds that PDP-Laban was expected to release soon an official statement on Rep. Gonzaga’s ouster.
