Anakalusugan Rep. Michael Defensor and Councilor Winnie Castelo have joined forces and will run for the top posts of Quezon City.
In a Viber message, Defensor also confirmed that he is teaming up with former Quezon City Rep. Bingbong Crisologo, who fought but lost to Mayor Joy Belmonte in the 2019 elections.
Asked when Defensor will file his certificate of candidacy (COC), he replied: “7 ng umaga”.
