Reelectionist Pateros Mayor Miguel “Ike” Ponce III and his running mate filed their certificates of candidacy on Wednesday for the May 9, 2022 elections, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

He recently joined the Aksyon Demokratiko party, which is supporting Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Dr. Willie Ong as presidential and vice presidential candidates, respectively.

The positions up for grabs in Pateros are mayor, vice mayor, and six seats for councilors in each of the municipality’s two districts

Candidates have until Oct. 8 to file their COCs. Comelec-Pateros reminded that each candidate is allowed to have a maximum of two companions in the filing of COC. Their temperature will be checked and they need to fill out a health declaration form.
