Zamboangueños are being warned against rumor mongerers who are out to cause confusions in public.

Dapitan City Councilor Mercy Arquiza, who earlier announced that she will be running for Zamboanga City’s 2nd congressional district representative next year, said she was amazed by a rumor that she would slide down and run as vice mayor of mayoralty aspirant Romeo “Nonong” Jalosjos.

Arquiza also appealed to rumor mongerers to stop their activities as they don’t help the public because they only peddle lies and confusions.

One rumor insinuated that Arquiza allegedly pre-arranged with Jomar Lobregat, who also announced that he will run for 2nd district congressman.

“There’s no arrangement with Jomar and I don’t know him and I’ve not spoken to him,” Arquiza said.

Jalosjos handpicked Arquiza to be his group’s candidate for 2nd district congressional representative, saying that the lady Dapitan councilor who is a native of Mercedes, this city is very much capable to represent Zamboanga City in Congress.

“I don’t believe there’s any formidable candidate for the city’s 2nd congressional district. All I have to do is present myself and my programs to the people come campaign period,” Arquiza added.
