Natakot kay Honey? Manny Lopez seeks reelection as Manila rep

0 291

Manila Rep. Manny Lopez has shelved his plan to run for mayor of Manila despite getting the PDP-Laban’s endorsement.

Lopez filed his certificate of candidacy for congressman through a proxy on Friday, October 8. He will be running for reelection as the congressional representative of Manila’s first district.

The son of the late Manila mayor Mel Lopez was touted as the possible opponent of Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna for the city’s mayoralty post.

PDP Laban Secretary General Melvin Matibag in September shared a photo of Lopez with President Rodrigo Duterte, saying he was the party’s candidate for Manila mayor.

Lacuna will be running for mayor under Aksyon Demokratiko, the party of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.
