AN­GE­LES CITY --- Coun­cilor Carmelo "Pogi" Lazatin, Jr., a may­oralty as­pi­rant here, tested neg­a­tive on il­le­gal sub­stances based on the re­sult of a drug test con­ducted by Philip­pine Drug En­force­ment Agency III (PDEA-3).

Lazatin and his team­mates went to the PDEA Pam­panga Lab­o­ra­tory lo­cated in Maimpis, City of San Fer­nando, Pam­panga yes­ter­day and vol­un­tar­ily sub­mit­ted them­selves for drug test­ing.

Lazatin said this is in line with the De­part­ment of In­te­rior and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment’s call for all the lo­cal can­di­dates for 2019 midterm elec­tions to un­dergo vol­un­tary drug test­ing.

“Every elec­tion, we un­dergo drug test­ing. Even if the Com­elec rules on drug test­ing were changed, we sub­mit our­selves to it be­cause we see noth­ing wrong with it,” Lazatin added.

Lazatin was joined by his run­ning­mates vice-may­oralty can­di­date Vicky Vega and can­di­dates for coun­cilor in­clud­ing Arvin “Pogs” Suller, Rudy Simeon, Arvin Louie “Ney” Ne­po­mu­ceno, An­gelito “Mr. In”
