2019 Elections: Albay Provincial Candidates

The filing of candidacies for the 2019 elections revealed a few surprises in the Province of Albay. This is because of the events at the national level that necessitated some realignments at the local level. It should be noted that the 2019 election is a midterm election and will test the public’s support for the Duterte Administration.

Among the surprises is the lack of contenders for mayoralty post in at least six towns with two or three more having only token candidates. Another is the assumed return of Cong. Joey Salceda to the provincial government. This is his ticket to the Regional Governorship  should Federalism pushes through. Instead, Salceda sought re-election as Representative for the Second Congressional District.
