Valenzuela mayor files candidacy for Congress
Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian filed his certificate of candidacy on Friday as he seeks a seat at the House of Representatives, according to a report by GMA News.
Gatchalian will run for representative of the city's first district.
Meanwhile, his brother, Deputy Speaker Wes Gatchalian, also filed his COC as he aspires to be the mayor of the city.
For his part, Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has not disclosed his final political plans yet for 2022.
He, however, said before that he presented himself as Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte’s vice presidential candidate should the latter seek the presidency, so that he could use his political experience in the Executive department.
