NEWS: Ramil will not run for Congress

“Ramil a good gentleman who has word of honor”- Way Kurat

oct 22

District 1 Congressman Manuel “Way Kurat” Zamora said yesterday that Vice Governor Ramil Gentugaya is a “good gentleman who has a word of honor” in not breaching his earlier word of not running against her daughter Boardmember Maricar Zamora-Apsay for Congress by 2010.

In an interview, Cong. Zamora, who is currently in town for the recess in Congress, bared that Ramil had pledged not to run against Maricar at the presence of Governor Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy.

He said that the four of them- he, the governor, Ramil and Maricar had already agreed that Ramil would run for his last term as vice governor while Maricar would run for Congress, which “Ramil conceded while Governor Uy endorsed.

“Ramil has a word of honor… as well as the governor, and I will stick to

that agreement,” the congressman said.

“Ramil also a good politician, a good leader of the province,” Cong. Zamora said on the vice governor who became his ijado when he became one of the honored ninongs of Ramil and Joanna Ang-Gentugaya in their grandest wedding last Saturday.

The third-termer congressman, who has ostensibly established quite a national prominence, said that there has been no problem in the first place on the Lakas-CMD party in view of the forthcoming 2010 election, particularly in his District “as the only solution is already made, and that’s for Ramil to continue serving as the vice governor, while the governor has already said his piece, with Maricar as his choice” in in apparent displeasure to the possible division that would erupt in the unified Lakas party in the province and to the much-touted Comval in case Ramil would proceed to run against Maricar.

He said he has known of Ramil, “from a good boy to a good man… I molded him as an SK (Sangguniang Kabataan) federation president after Maricar’s SK provincial leadership until he became one good leader”.

In the same interview, Cong. Zamora took exception of the earlier Sidlak report that he “could not see eye to eye” to Monkayo Manuel “Junjun” Brillantes.

He said that on the contrary he and Brillantes have “leveled off” of their minds and have been meeting in one-on-one twosome of them unknown to the public.

He bared that Maricar,too has been in constant communication with the mayor’s brother Lito and the mayor’s sister Diel, the barangay captain of Olaycon, Monkayo.
