The leading congressional aspirant in the second district Lilia M. Nuno looks at former vice mayor Mannix Dalipe as his closest rival and not Jomar Lobregat of the yellow team.
While Lobregat is claiming that his candidacy is gaining ground, Nuno sees Dalipe as stronger in the contest and not the younger brother of Mayor Celso Lobregat.
“Mannix (Dalipe) is not missing his house-to-house campaign. My supporters have been telling me what Mannix is doing in his sorties. That’s why I consider him as my closest contender than Jomar,” Nuno said in an interview over Tatak-RMN yesterday morning.
Based on published survey results, Nuno garnered 69 percent of the 400 respondents or equivalent of 276 votes as against 13 percent (52 votes) of Dalipe and 11 percent (44 votes) of Lobregat.
The results alone would speak that indeed Lobregat needs to defeat Dalipe first before going head-on against the powerful lady aspirant Lilia Nuno, said a political analyst.
With the support of the women sector, different religious groups, the Muslim and Christian community, and barangay leaders,Nuno expressed optimism that she would it in this election and assured the public of transparency, good governance, and more legislative measures that will help develop not only the district she represents but the entire city.
Nuno appealed to candidates of different political parties to keep their campaign on high level by presenting their programs of government rather than resorting to dirty tactics and black propaganda. — Jimmy Villaflores
