Lapu-Lapu City Representative Paz Radaza and her running mate, City Councilor Rico Amores, file their certificates of candidacy

Lapu-Lapu City Representative Paz Radaza is set to run as a mayoral candidate as she and her running mate, City Councilor Rico Amores, filed their certificates of candidacy (COC) on Wednesday, October 6.

In 2019, Radaza won a congressional seat representing Lapu-Lapu City’s lone district under the Lakas-CMD (Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats) Party. 

For 2022, she will be running with Harry Radaza, Dongdong Berdin, Josie Hayashi, Rex Mangubat, and other former candidates of the Deretso party –the local party affiliated with Lakas-CMD.

Besides her advocacy of empowering women, Radaza pushed to rename the terminals of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) in honor of the first Filipino hero, Datu Lapulapu.

In 2020, Radaza faced raps over the death of a child who was electrocuted inside her property in Olango Island. In a Freeman article, Radaza claimed these were merely propaganda made to tarnish her reputation.

Lapu-Lapu City is a first-class highly urbanized city known for its beaches, industrial zones, and the MCIA.

Incumbent Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard Chan, who will run for reelection, has yet to file his COC. – Rappler.com
