IS LAND Transportation Office (LTO) Central Visayas Director Victor Emmanuel Caindec gunning for an elective position this 2022?

It may seem so after posters of his image were posted by unidentified individuals in various parts of Cebu City on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021.

The posters with Caindec’s face contained the #Bungot2022 slogan.

But in a phone interview on Saturday, Caindec said he has not really thought about it as he is focused on his work with the agency.

“Is there a need for anybody else to run? Sa kadaghang gusto managan (With so many people wanting to run) and where do you run? Asa mang dapita (Where)?” Caindec told SunStar Cebu.

“I really haven’t thought of it in a really serious manner because there are a lot of things we still need to do in LTO, especially since we have less than 280 days in DOTr (Department of Transportation). The priority really is to finish the work we have started in LTO,” he added.

A reliable source close to SunStar Cebu disclosed that some sectors are asking Caindec to run for mayor of Cebu City.

But Caindec said while he is happy that some of his acquaintances want him to run for a political position, he urged them to just use their resources to help those in need.

“So maybe it’s a joke from some of my friends,” he said. (WBS, JKV)
