Pamintuan and Guiao, who were under the same ticket in the May 2013 elections will both seek reelection while Rivera has already announced that he will be running for vice mayor under another city mayoral candidate Senator Lito Lapid.
But some supporters of former congressman Carmelo “Tarzan” Lazatin are quick to respond with with Pari ta or Pamintuan, Rivera and Tarzan.
On Sunday, a big gathering was held at the Barangay Malabanias covered court which was attended by thousands who came from various villages here.
The meeting was spearheaded by Lapid, Rivera, and Lazatin who will be celebrating his 81st birthday on June 28.
A close ally of Lazatin told Sun.Star Pampanga that he will fight Guiao in the congressional race in next year’s polls.
