ANGELES CITY -- The national headquarters of the Liberal Party has designated Balibago chairman Rodelio “Tony” Mamac as local chairman of the administration party.
On September 28, LP President Manuel “Mar” Roxas issued a certification designating Mamac as city chair with authority to nominate and issue certificates of nomination for local candidates.
“By virtue of the powers and authority vested in me by the Constitution of the Liberal Party, I hereby authorize Rodelio H. Mamac Sr. to nominate and issue certificates of nomination for all official local candidates of the party in the 2013 national and local elections for the City of Angeles,” Roxas stated.
Roxas clarified, however, that the power to nominate and issue certificates of nomination for the positions of governor, representatives, and city mayor shall be retained and exercised solely by the president of the Liberal Party, unless otherwise delegated in accordance with the constitution and by-laws of the party.
Mamac is required to furnish on or before October 10, 2012 the LP NHQ copies of all the certificates of nominations that he has issued by virtue of the authority granted to him by the political party.
In a recent convention, the local party nominated Mamac to be the officials candidate for vice mayor in this city.
The party also nominated as guest candidates incumbent councillors Bryan Nepomuceno, Edu Pamintuan, Arvin Suller; former councillors Rudy Simeon and Ruben Maniago; Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr; and Danica Lacson.
Roxas signed Mamac’s certificate of nomination and acceptance.
Mamac formally introduced the LP guest candidates at Shanghai Restaurant on Tuesday. All of the candidates accepted the party nomination.
