ROSALES – The perceived political kingmaker of Pangasinan declared his support for the electoral bid of Board Member Ranjit Shahani and former Bayambang Mayor Leo “Boy” de Vera for a seat in the provincial board in next year’s poll.
Rosendo So, the chair of the popular Abono Party-list, said in case Shahani decides to seek re-election as member of the Sanggunian Panlalawigan (provincial board), he will support him (Shahani).
He said he will also support former Mayor de Vera who told him about his intention to take a shot at a seat in the provincial legislature.
As of press time, So said only the duo has courted his support a few days before the filing of candidacy that will be held on October 1 to 5 this year.
Meanwhile, the Abono Party boss said he disagreed with the claim of election watchdog Kontra Daya that took a dig at party lists as a parties of the wealthy and not of marginalized and underrepresented sectors.
He explained that a farmer who owns a one hectare of farmland is already a millionaire because his land cost a million of pesos now.
“E papa ano iyan kung magsasaka dalawang ektarya e isang ektarya P100 per square meter e di million na din iyon,” he stressed.
He said the gauge of a party list’s performance is the one that extended more help to the sector it represented in Congress.
Urdaneta City Councilor Rio Esteves, Abono Party-list coordinator, said Abono has nominated former Congressman Conrado Estrella, the party incumbent Representative Pacoy Ortega, and Erika Dy of Isabela, as first, second and third nominees, respectively for the next year’s poll.
Abono is presently represented Robert Raymond Estrella, Conrad’s younger brother, and Ortega.
