Misamis Ori­en­tal Gover­nor Yevgeny Emano, who is seek­ing re­elec­tion for a third and fi­nal term in next year’s elec­tion, may likely get his run­ning mate from the short­list of pro­vin­cial board mem­ber bets.

Emano told reporters on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 8, that the party will pick among the can­di­dates for the pro­vin­cial board should Vice Gover­nor Joey Pe­laez de­cides to seek a con­gres­sional seat.

“Ang akong (My) run­ning mate is naa sa (in the) short­list sa (of the) board mem­bers like ka­tong (like those) last or sec­ond- ter­mer so its ei­ther one of them. But, I don’t know yet if Vice Gov has al­ready de­clared nga moda­gan pagkakakon­gre­sista or unsa iyang plano (to run for congress or what­ever his plans are),”Emano said.

The gover­nor said the full slate of the Pa­dayon Pilipino in the prov­ince maybe an­nounced next week as they file their cer­tifi­cate of can­di­dacy on Oc­to­ber 17.

Emano said the party has yet to com­pletely ironed out its can­di­dates for town may­or­ship.

Among the 23 towns and two cities, he said only eight have al­ready been fi­nal­ized which in­clude Man­ti­cao, Lu­gait, Naawan, Ini­tao, Tagoloan, Tal­isayan, Lagon­g­long, and Gin­goog City.

“Naa man gud changes nga nahitabo so karong walo pa lang ni ang na fi­nal (There have been changes so as of now we still have eight may­ors so far),”Emano said.

The capi­tol’s top of­fi­cial said he would fi­nal­ize and meet all can­di­dates run­ning in the prov­ince un­der Pa­dayon Pilipino this week.
