MANILA, Philippines – A change of pace among the many who arrived on the first day of filing of certificates of candidacies (COCs) on Thursday, October 11, were those who claimed to be old flames of personalities Kris Aquino and Mocha Uson.
Among them, Senatorial bet Daniel Magtira, who had this message for the actress and now social media personality: “Kris, mahal pa rin kita.” (Kris, I still love you.)
Magtira had once claimed he was the former husband of Aquino. This is his 3rd attempt at filing his COC as the Commission on Elections rejected his applications for the 2013 and 2016 elections.
He said he wanted to run to champion the Philippine music industry and the revival of Pinoy rock.
Remember Daniel Magtira, who once claimed he is Kris Aquino's husband and filed COCs in previous elections? He filed a COC again today – and he has this message for Kris Aquino @rapplerdotcom #PHVote pic.twitter.com/jPzs6GBE2p— Paterno Esmaquel II (@paterno_II) October 11, 2018
The applicant even staged a brief performance after his filing:
Magtira, though, was not alone.
Private citizen Anson Tuana likewise claimed he had a relationship with former Presidential Communications Operations Office Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson. Asked how long they were supposedly together for, Tuana said “5 nights.”
He was seen outside the Comelec earlyin the morning before making his way into the building in the afternoon to finally file his certificate. In an interview with reporters, Tuana said he wanted to be known as “Aging Saging.”
Tuana said he wanted to run to push for the lowering of fuel products. He also claimed to be a former police officer and soldier. – with reports from Paterno Esmaquel II/Rappler.com
