San Juan's only choice in 2019: New blood from old families
MANILA, Philippines – San Juan City has the same choices for its top post come election day: new blood from old families.
On one side is incumbent vice mayor Janella Ejercito Estrada, who shares the same blood as 3 former San Juan mayors: former president Joseph Ejercito Estrada, former senator Jinggoy Estrada, and Senator JV Ejercito.
Estrada is running under the Pwersa ng Masang Pilipino (PMP).
On the other side is former vice mayor Francis Zamora, son of longtime congressman Ronaldo Zamora, who is seeking to clinch his 9th term in the House of Representatives.
The Zamoras are running under the ruling party PDP-Laban.
While both bets are young guns from established families, their outlooks are completely different, as they have rehashed in their mitings de avance on Saturday, May 11.
While Janella Ejercito Estrada seeks to extend her family's 5-year grip in the city, Zamora wants to end it. Rambo Talabong files this report. – Rappler.com
