Antique Lone District Rep. Loren Legarda Files COC for 2022 Election
LOREN LEGARDA – The Antique lone district representative was the first to file her Certificate of Candidacy (COC) for the 2022 Election.
The filing of candidacies for the Election 2022 is ongoing now. The last day set by the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) is on Friday, October 8, 2021. After it, the voter registration will resume on October 11 until October 30, 2021.
Initially, the voter registration period was set until September 30 only. However, a lot of people have yet to register and there are long queues in areas set by COMELEC for voter registration. The public called for an extension of the voter registration.
The Senate passed a bill seeking the extension of the voter registration period. The House of Representatives also passed their version of a bill seeking to extend the registration of voters. Both bills were passed on the final reading and the COMELEC agreed to extending the voter registration.
Currently, the filing of candidacy is sparking reports. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Antique’s lone district Representative Loren Legarda filed her certificate of candidacy (COC) for the Election 2022.
A former senator, Rep. Loren Legarda is running for a Senate comeback next year. Based on the report, she was the first to file her COC when the poll body started the filing process. She officialized her bid at 8:35 a.m.
During the filing of her COC, the Antique Representative wore a bamboo face shield and she brought with her a bayong that has picture of her face on it.
Legarda has previously served as a senator twice. She first won a seat in the upper chamber of the legislative body in 1998 and served her first term until 2004. Before joining politics, she was a journalist and a cultural worker.
