    Look, if here in the UK Lennoix Lewis went for even a Member of Parliament in his own area, He would be simply LAUGHED AT!! in the Phils anyone who is in the public eye can run...and get away with it, l;ook at Pres Estrada?? what a dunce!! but he was President simply because he was a film star.

    In UK if you are not anygood at your job in Gov't you will get your bottom kicked and get sacked, or forced to resiign, in Phils Gov't you are very safe. as long as you get elected you are IN! come on all Filipinos stand up and say I aint voting for a stupid film star, boxer, singer or anyone else,

    Elections are family affairs in Negros Oriental

    DUMAGUETE CITY -- It's all in the family.

    Several political families in Negros Oriental are fielding more than one candidate in the May 14 elections,
    in what many see as the families' bid to expand their influence throughout the province.

    Data gathered from the Commission on Elections show that in some districts, spouses are jointly running for public office while in other places,
    it's father-son or brother-brother.


    Starting from the first district, Rep. Jacinto Paras, who is barred from seeking a fourth consecutive term, has fielded his wife Olive as Kampi (Kabalikat ng Malayang Pilipino or Party of the Free Filipino) Party's bet against his own brother Jerome, who is seeking to return to his old post under the Nacionalista banner. Jacinto’s other brother, Joselito, is running for mayor of Guihulngan town.

    In Pamplona town, Mayor Apolinario Arnaiz Jr. is running for re-election while his brother, Gov. George Arnaiz, is running for the province’s second congressional seat. Their father, Apolinario Arnaiz Sr., also sits on the provincial board.

    Second district Rep.Emilio Macias II is running for governor of Negros Oriental under the Nationalist People’s Coalition banner, along with his son, Erwin, who is seeking re-election to the provincial board.
    Dumaguete City Councilor Saleto Erames is running for provincial board member while his son, Rommel, is running for a seat on the city cCouncil and Saleto's brother, Arturo, is running for Dumaguete vice mayor.

    With the retirement of 3rd district Rep. Herminio Teves from politics, his congressional seat is being contested by his grandson, Pride Henry Teves, and nephew, Edgar. Another grandson, Dan Leon, and a brother-in-law, George Villamor, are both running for city councilor in Dumaguete City.
