Gina de Venecia for governor?
“With Jose “Joey” de Venecia, the present secretary general of the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino, gunning for a senate post, it would be quite impossible for his father or step mother Gina to run in the same post as they will be courting a disaster because they have the same surname,” he said. The political spectator said it is best for Gina is either to run for the mayoralty of this city or the gubernatorial seat in the province. He explained that in case Gina chooses not to challenge bitter political rival and this city’s incumbent Mayor Benjamin S. Lim, she can just transfer her residence in San Fabian town and register there one year prior to the local poll as provided by the Local Government Code and the Omnibus Election Code. De Venecia has a house in that town. (Gina de Venecia is a registered voter of San Fabian – ed) Although a candidate of a coalition composed of the Liberal Party, Nationalist Party, Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino, and the Nationalist People’s Coalition in the 2010 election, Gina said she is a card carrying member of the NPC. Meanwhile, the lady solon said Governor Amado T. Espino has just taken his oath on March 10, 2012 as a member of the NPC Espino used to be a member of the defunct Lakas-Kampi party headed by former President Gloria M. Arroyo
