Compostela Valley Representative Maricar Zamora (first district) just has her FaceBook account updated Saturday with words thanking for no one had filed a candidacy to fight for her first reelection bid in the 2013 polls.


Last Friday a few hours before 5 P.M. when the Comelec would end accepting certificates of candidacy, she posted in her FB account named Maricar Zamora (Maria Carmen Zamora) expressing anxiety “like there’s eternity” over a possible rival who might suddenly come to challenge her.

By early Saturday morning the congresswoman, via a mobile phone, posted, “… it came as a pleasant surprise that no one except this humble representation staked his or her claim to contest our place in public service. When the final hours (of) October 5 came to a close, we knew that another battle has been won.”

“For now, we can only heave a sigh of relief that we were afforded the opportunity to forego a rigorous campaign and instead plan ahead to hit the ground running if and when we assume our second term, God willing… I gladly accept the test and say with conviction that I am more than willing to prove my mettle once more,” she added.

Zamora said that her belief has always been that “the first day of the election campaign is really the day we assumed office; everyday is a campaign day for good governance and public service. I am thankful for the trust and rest assured, I will continue to give my constituents the kind of service they deserve.”

In the last 2010 polls, she was opposed by controversial ex-police officer Cesar Mancao, who like Zamora, hailed from Monkayo town. Zamora trounced Mancao by a margin of over 20,000 votes.

Mancao is running for board member in the first district of the province for the 2013 election. 

On the otherhand, reports also said that also second district Rep. Rommel Amatong and Governor Arturo Uy would be unopposed coming polls, both for their third term. (Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte)
