Less than a week before the elections, local political party Padayon Pilipino is asking Cagayan de Oro City Councilor Nadya Emano-Elipe to run as city vice mayor replacing his father former mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Emano who passed away last May 7.
The information was posted in Padayon Pilipino’s official Facebook page as shown below (screenshot).
Meanwhile, read Comelec rule on candidate substitution as stated in Section 33 of Comelec Resolution No. 10420 (download HERE).
As of this post, there is still no information yet whether Councilor Nadya will heed the political party’s call. Based on the above ruling if qualified, she has until 12:00 noon on May 13 to file her Certificate of Candidacy (COC).
