ATTY. JUN LOPOZ , Liberal Party District 1 Chairman- Compostela Valley

Ex-Governor Jose “Joecab” Cab allero is veering towards running for the 2nd district congressional post against first-termer Congressman Rommel “Bobong” Amatong even as yesterday the former Compostela Valley governor still insisted he has still an “either for governor or for congressman” option.
Pundits have speculated that when Caballero recently took his oath as the 2nd district chairman of the Liberal Party in the province and has been reportedly forming a lineup of candidates for boardmembers is signalling he would be taking the congressional run option.
Meanwhile, Atty. Jaime “Jun” Lopoz Jr, who is running for congressman, also took oath the other day in LP Manila headquarters as the first district chairman of LP in the province debunking reports that controversail ex-police officer Cesar Mancao, also a congressional candidate, got the district’s LP chairmanship.
Boardmember Maricar Apsay, daughter of last-termer Cong. Manuel “Way Kurat” Zamora, is also running for congress.
Last Sunday Mancao along with actor Cesar Montano made a motorcade of at least 50 vehicles across five towns in the first district except the highland Maragusan. The motorcade bannered yellow color as Mancao and his supporters wore yellow shirts with LP logo and letters and face of presidential candidate Senator Noynoy Aquino.
Reports said that Mancao’s membership application to LPwas junked by the party’s national directorate as he was accordingly “close to the Arroyos”.
Caballero’s final filing of candidacy for congressman would leave reelectionist Governor Arturo “Chiongkee” Uy unopposed in the forthcoming 2010 election given the absence of good gubernatorial material except Caballero.
Uy has remained to stick with Lakas-Kampi-CMD after Sunday’s affirmative vote of partymates for Lakas and its standard-bearer Gilbert Teodoro during an intense four-hour close-door political caucus marred by a walk-out of Cong Amatong who rooted for Teodoro than Senator Manny Villar, whom sources said was first preferred by Uy.
