No VM choice yet for Oyo

Oct 13-19, 2011

Tagum City Mayor Rey “Chiong Oy” Uy has reiterated that his son second-termer Councilor De Carlo “Oyo” Uy is on definite course to run for mayor in the city, but he has yet no choice at presstime who would be Oyo’s vice mayoral tandem for the 2013 polls.

In an interview, he said: “Go na si Oyo” debunking issues that circulate in the rounds that Oyo might be running for other post.
But the mayor acknowledged that there are issues hurled in the definite mayoralty bid of his son like that he would be dictating Oyo once he gets elected to run the City Hall.

In response, he said: “Unsa man diay akong mga gipanghimo sa syudad? Makadaut ba or makaayo?”
But he said that he is not a type who would dictate Oyo what he should do once he is victorious to sit as a mayor to follow him, adding that he would only guide as a father who knows and learns politics ahead of his son.
Asked on who is his early choice as the vice mayoralty tandem of Oyo, with slow head gesture the mayor softly said, “wala pa.”
Earlier reports have it that vice mayoralty choices from the Liberal Party where the mayor and almost all of the members of the city council ran and won last May 2010 elections included from Councilors Mylene Baura and Nicandro “Nickel” Suaybaguio.

Separate reports said that while the last-termer Vice Mayor Allan Rellon was entertaining to run for mayor to contest Oyo he was more bent to run instead for boardmember considering his lack of funding to wage a good and feasible mayoral run against Oyo.
Former Congressman Arrel Olano was also reported to be harboring a plan to make a comeback mayoralty bid by 2013 but pundits said that he better not tangle for mayoral bid as he lost already his political luster as shown in the dismal votes he got in the last elections.
