LP proclaims Maliksi-Lacson tandem in Cavite for 2013 polls

The ruling Liberal Party on Monday proclaimed its candidates for the 2013 local elections in Cavite, naming Rep. Irineo "Ayong" Maliksi as its gubernatorial bet and Ronald Jay Lacson, son of Sen. Panfilo Lacson, as his running-mate.

Maliksi and Lacson were proclaimed Monday at an event where candidates for the provincial elections were announced, the LP said on its Twitter account.

"Cavite: Gov. Ayong Maliksi; Vice Gov. Jay Lacson 2013," it said.

The two are to go up against re-electionist Governor Jonvic Remulla and vice gubernatorial bet Jolo Revilla, son of Sen. Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.

Remulla and Revilla will run under the Lakas-Magdalo alliance, which is expected to swear in new members in Cavite on Tuesday, Sen. Revilla's birthday.

On Sunday, Revilla had said he does not expect his relations with the elder Lacson to sour just because their sons are going up against each other for vice governor.

A tweet by GMA News reporter Kara David quoted Maliksi as saying his running-mate is neither an actor nor a traitor.

"Di siya artista at di siya traydor," David's tweet quoted Maliksi as saying.

President Benigno Aquino III was present at the event along with secretaries Emilio Abaya (Transportation and Communications) and Manuel Roxas II (Interior and Local Government), it said.

"Rep. Ayong Maliksi is the gubernatorial bet for Cavite. He served as Governor from 2001-2010," the LP said.

It added Maliksi, who is on his first term as congressman, served as Cavite governor from 2001 to 2010. He previously served as Imus vice mayor from 1980 to 1986, mayor from 1988 to 1998, and congressman from 1998 to 2001. — KBK, GMA News
