Deputy Majority Floor Leader Jesus “Bong” Suntay is seeking reelection as representative of the fourth district of Quezon City.

Joining him during the submission of certificate of candidacy at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) main office in Intramuros, Manila were reelectionist Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte and City councilors Marra Suntay, Ivy Lagman, Irene Belmonte, Janet Babes Malaya, Hero Bautista and Egay Yap.

Despite being a neophyte, Suntay was elected as Deputy Majority Leader. He previously headed the House Committee on Human Rights.

Suntay authored a number of measures including the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Bill (House Bill 10213), Online Network Philippines Bill (HB 10098) and OFW Remittance Protection Bill (HB07951).

Before being elected as a congressman in 2019, Suntay was appointed by President Rodrigo Duterte as one of the five directors at Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).
