MALASIQUI – Town Mayor Armando Domantay wished it was former Mayor Alfonso Soriano who fielded himself for the mayoralty race and not his wife Felicitas for the mayoralty race in May 2010.

Domantay said he wanted to fight Alfonso because of the latter tendency to criticize his administration.

“Dahil salita ng salita. At para magkaalaman na kung sino ang gusto ng mga tao,” he stressed.

Domantay also said there was big possibility for him and former 3rd District congressional candidate Gallant Soriano to join forces in the next year’s election.

He said Representative Rachel Arenas gave him a rough ride.

“Habang naka-upo si Congressman Arenas ako ay palaging ina-api. Lahat ng projects ay hindi kinu-coordinate sa opisina ko, “he said in the Pangasinan language.

He stressed that after Arenas trounced Soriano in the last congressional race, he asked the lady solon if he could be allied with her.

“Pero sabi niya hindi niya puweding iwananan iyong mga original na kasama niya. Nanlumo ako. Ako ay nalungkot. So wala akong magawa kundi tanggapin ang desisyon niya,” Domantay said.

He said however that Arenas has been calling or texting him lately. He explained that as an educated person he reciprocated with all the courtesy her office deserved.

But he said that nobody could deny that in the past he was given a rough treatment by the solon.

Political observers said that the mayor is still a force to reckon in this vote-rich town. They said the May 10 poll would show who among him and Arenas, also a Malasiqui resident here, is the kingpin through the number of votes the lady solon will get as against her rival Soriano.
