Only six candidates have filed their Certificates of Candidacy for various  local positions  in Zamboanga city during the third day of filing for the 2019 local elections.

Inspite of the seeming lack of interest, the Commission on Elections District Election Office has reportedly ran out of COC forms to give out to would-be candidates.

Imelda Dagsa, Comelec  Election Assistant, said  that the forms will be available once they have downloaded from the Comelec website within the day.

Dagsa said that only one candidate has filed his Certificate of Candidacy on October 12, the day when an influx of candidates are expected to troop to the Comelec office.

October 12 is the feast day of Nuestra Señora La Virgen del Pilar, the patron Saint of Zamboanga City.

Businessman Daniel Nuevo filed for District 1 Representative last Friday, thus joining five other official candidates who filed on the first day of filing the COCs.

Two candidates who filed for major positions are Dr. Cesar Climaco who filed for District 1 Representative and Danilo Lagdamat Guevara, a 43-year-old  Independent candidate who filed his Certificate of Candidacy for Mayor.

Three others filed their COCs for council positions.

These are 26-year-old Sada Dela Torre, a student from Barangay Camino Nuevo,; Ibnohajar Lahib Binang,  a 38-year-old businessman from Barangay San Roque and Manuel Tubang English, a 56-year-old project consultant from Barangay Sto. Niño.  (Paul  Kevin Domingo, contributor)
