For those Overseas Filipino Workers like me who have registered, we can only vote for the national positions like the Senators and the Party-list (correct me if I'm wrong).
Anyway, I'm a proud citizen of Paranaque City and once again the politicial dynasty families (Bernabe and Olivarez) are head-to-head for the mayoral seat. Jun Bernabe is the incumbent mayor and since it's already his last term as Mayor, his son (Councilor Benjo Bernabe) has to run. As early as last elections, the Bernabe has already planned to introduce Benjo to the Paranaquenos with the Councilor post first.
On the other hand, 1st District Congressman Edwin Olivarez is the son of the former Mayor Pablo Olivarez. Even though Congressman was formerly the Vice Governor of the Province of Laguna, he returned to Paranaque to serve his fellow Paranaquenos.
I have attached the two-part video below of the debate from ABS-CBN featuring the two contenders. Topics discussed in the debate includes the 24,000 squatters, corruption, senior citizens, political dynasty, budget and garbage problem.
I hope the people of Paranaque can vote for the best man for the job.
On the lighter note, Benjo looks like Anjo Yllana?
