Rep. Jocelyn Limkaichong for Governor in Negros Oriental

Rep. Jocelyn Limkaichong of the 1st district of Negros Oriental has reiterated her intention to run for governor of Negros Oriental in the forthcoming local and national elections in 2013.

On a scale of 1 to 10, Rep. Limkaichong rated the probability of herself running for governor in 2013 at 8, which means that she is almost sure of challenging incumbent Governor Roel Degamo and former Finance Secretary Margarito Teves.

In an interview, Limkaichong confirmed that she is considering Mark Macias as her probable vice gubernatorial tandem.

The first district solon believes that Macias, son of the late Gov. Emilio Macias II, has the competence, integrity and sincerity, among other qualifications, in running the affairs of the Provincial Board.

Limkaichong said everything is running smoothly in her sorties all over the province together with Macias and that the people are very receptive of their tandem.

However, a lot of things can still happen from today up to the filing period for candidacies, adding that Macias can also run as Board Member.

In Dumaguete City, Limkaichong said she maintains good relationships with Mayor Manuel Sagarbarria, who is a member of the Nationalist People's Coalition but considered an ally of the Liberal Party to which she belongs.- PNA
