DAGUPAN CITY – Pangasinan’s political landscape took interesting twists and turns with “unexpected candidates appearing at the Commission on Elections’ provincial office at the last day of filing certificates of candidacies on October 5.

Former Press Secretary and incumbent Alaminos City Mayor Hernani Braganza arrived at past three o’clock with his “surprise” teammate former Police Director General Arturo Lomibao who was earlier to be reported as Liberal Party chair in the fourth district.
He was thrust into the position after Braganza’s supposed running mate, former Governor Victor Agbayani, “declined” offers for him to run as vice governor. Agbayani opted to be the Liberal Party’s provincial campaign manager.
Braganza is up against incumbent Governor Amado Espino Jr. while Lomibao will lug it out with Vice Governor Ferdinand Calimlim.
Espino and Lomibao were classmates at the Philippine Military Academy in Baguio City. They were part of Class of 1972.
