GMA Files COC for Congresswoman

Tuesday, December 1, 2009 ·

The speculation that has surfaced since early this year has now been confirmed true: President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is gunning for Congresswoman in her hometown district of Pampanga.

In March 2009, this blog featured that a lot of political analysts seem to think that PGMA is hinting on running as representative of the second district of Pampanga where his son, Mikey, is currently holding the position as congressman. The speculations are due to the fact that they have witnessed PGMA visiting the province more than 50 times this year 2009 alone. If rumors are true, PGMA has been pondering on being Speaker of the House come 2010, which can pave a way for her to become Prime Minister, if and when, a Charter Change on the Form of Government will take place.

This morning, PGMA officially filed her Certificate of Candidacy after a mass organized by her townsmen in Lubao, Pampanga.

Meanwhile, University of the Philippines professor Randy David, who previously said that he is up to challenge Arroyo if the latter indeed runs for Congresswoman, has now decided not to file his candidacy.

While this has become a bad news for PGMA's opponents who claim that she is only doing it to stay in power and gain immunity from her graft cases, her filing of candidacy for congresswoman is definitely a good news for her constituents in Pampanga.
